Merry Monday Challenge Week #110

Hello & Happy Monday!

Happy Memorial Day to you, too!

I'm a bit late with getting my blog updated this morning. Decided to sleep in this morning as I had the bed to myself. Shawn & Kelsey got up and went fishing this morning. I'm totally taking advantage of a quiet house for a few hours!

Today we have a new challenge over at Merry Monday! The talented Debbie Henderson is our hostess this week, so let's get to it!

I thought this challenge was so fun! I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use when Debbie's challenge was posted! I had this Lockhart Stamp Co. Holly Cupcake for quite a few years and it's been sitting collecting dust and i'm thrilled that I was able to ink it up! It's a fun image to color too! As you can see I made my card with the SU Circle Card Framelits Die. We use to call these type of cards "flip cards" because the circle is cut and flips to either side. This die is brilliant! Anyways, I pulled out some pretty red holly paper that I got at JoAnn's and got started. My card is a bit longer than the normal die as I cut & scored mine longer before it went thru the Big Shot with the die. It worked out great as now I have a pocket inside of mine that I can place a gift card, money or even a little note! I'm so pleased with this card! What do you think??

Hope you can pop over to the Merry Monday blog to see what the other ladies have created this week and also play along! I can't wait to see what yummy things find their way into our gallery!

Well, that's all for me today!
I'm off to my craft room for a bit to play! I have spent the last week downstairs cleaning out and then rearranging my craft area. I went thru boxes & boxes of cards that I have made over the years. Hard to believe the stuff we accumulate!
We had a nice little cookout yesterday with my parents and the weather was just beautiful to sit outside! Today will be low keyed & quiet. A great day to go get inky!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
Happy Memorial Day!
