Merry Monday Challenge Week #62

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope all the Mom's out there had a wonderful day with their families!
I spent Saturday with my Mom for a bit. Then on Mother's Day she had plans to go to my younger brother's for a big dinner so i'm sure she had a nice day!
My day was nice! I spent time with all 3 of my kiddo's, the 2 grandpuppies, son in law and my little fur baby, Gigi. Shawn made some burgers on the grill but it was a tad too chilly to sit outside on our new picnic table. It was a gift to Shawn & myself for his birthday & mother's day. We will get lots of use out of it, i'm sure!

So, since it's Monday again, that means it's time for another sketch from Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper. She has some of the most awesome sketches around!

I loved this sketch the first time I seen it! I had some of these cute images in my Image Box from a few years back. They were stamped in Always Artichoke and I went & grabbed some paper to match. I added some glue & glitter to my image to resemble winter. When I made this card I had just found out the new color line up for Stampin Up and seen that Soft Sky was coming back as a Subtles color! I have always loved this color! My card base is Soft Sky and the next layer is Always Artichoke with my Wintergreen DSP. I added some Soft Sky ribbon & pearls to finish my card and I just love it! I will be making a pack of these for my craft show! :)
