Merry Monday Week # 54 & Gigi Pics

 Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Since it's Monday that means it's time for another challenge from Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper! This week it is a theme.....take a look!

I went with a very simple card this week and left my designer paper do all the talking!
I've been inspired by one of my Merry Monday DT girls, Sherry. She uses this My Mind's Eye designer paper and it always looks so fun & festive! Thanks Sherry for your inspiration!

I have a huge pad of this designer paper so I really need to start using it! It has glitter on it which makes it even more festive and I adore the prints! I made a 5 pack of these for my craft show which will start in November and the nice thing about this card's very flat and mail friendly!

Merry Monday Week #54 Card:

Stamps: Sentiment from Amuse, Inside- More Merry Messages (SU)
Ink: Lucky Limeade
Cardstock: Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla, My Mind's Eye DSP
Accessories: Circle Punches, Rhinestones, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you can stop by Lesley's blog to see what the other Merry Makers have created this week! Lots of cute "snowmen"! I also hope you can play along with us this week! It's nice having these cards made way in advance of the holiday season!

Well before I close for the day, I had a request for some pictures of the new little princess of the house, Gigi. So here you go!

Gigi & her Daddy...

Dominic & Gigi looking out the front door for Dom's Mom to come...
Such a cute picture!!

She is full of kisses!!

The 3 babies, Kelsey, Dominic & Gigi...

Kirsten & Kelsey with the 2 Jack Russell Puppies, Shady & Dawkins.
Those 2 puppies will lick your face clean....I kid you not! :)

We are expecting some snow/ice today so i'm going to be hitting up my stamp table today as I have a few projects that need to be finished up. Yesterday, we did not go to the movies, instead we went out for a nice quiet supper just the 2 of us. Kelsey is still under the weather...i'm thinking she has the flu! Time to break out the Clorox wipes & Lysol spray....because I don't think any of us want that! Hope she feels better soon!

Well, that's all for me folks!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the pictures of the doggies in my life!
They are just the cutest!! :)

I love the simple design you chose for your card, and I love that fun dsp! Flat cards for mailing are my priority these days, and I'll be making many more like that too!
Oh Wendy, the pictures are precious!! Gigi looks like she's adjusted well and looks very happy in her new home :) I LOVE the pic of them looking out the door together! SO cute!
And those 2 russell terriers are too cute, and I bet they're a handful of non-stop energy too :)TFS
