Merry Monday Challenge Week #108

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend and a nice Mother's Day!
I spent some time with my Mom on Saturday because she had plans to go to my younger brother's for Mother's Day. She was just getting over the stomach bug that was going around so I hope I did not pick up any of her yukky germs. Yesterday, I spent the day with my hubby & 2 doggies out working in the yard & doing laundry. No rest to be had for me. It sure was a beautiful day here in PA! Couldn't have asked for a better day!

So, since it's Monday.....that means it's time for another challenge from over at Merry Monday!
Lori is our wonderful hostess this week, so let's get started!




I found this very cute paper at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and loved the country feel to it. When I seen Lori's challenge I pulled this paper out since it had stars in it. I added no sentiment to the front as the words in the paper were enough. I added some of the Gold Twine that Stampin Up carried back at Christmastime. That stuff is pretty thick so I did not tie a bow. I layered a Cherry Cobbler star then a Champagne star on top with a button and called it done. Hope you like!


Merry Monday Challenge Week #108 Card:

Stamps: inside sentiment from Stampendous
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Neenah White, Cherry Cobbler, The Paper Studio DSP

That's all for me today!
We are expecting a heatwave today (86 degrees) and thankfully hubby got our air conditioners put in this weekend. I'm ready for summer now!
Stay cool!
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!
