Merry Monday Challenge Week #64

Hello & Happy Monday!

Happy Memorial Day too! Hope everyone has a nice day with family & friends!

Our weekend was jammed packed with lots of running around. Friday was grocery shopping, Saturday, I got my hair did for our upcoming trip to Jamaica, Sunday, we went to our very good friends, Deb & Ed's for a cookout and spend some time with them and today we are headed over to Kirsten's for supper! Phew, i'm tired of running around for one week! 

So, since it's Monday, that means it's time for another sketch from the umber talented Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper. This week's sketch is an really nice one and I love all the samples I have seen from my other Merry Mondays Design Team buddies. Hope on over to her blog to see what the others have will love their creativity!

Here is the sketch and my sample....

I wasn't real sure what I was going to do with this sketch then I went shopping over at Ellen Hudson's and found this adorable die from Impression Obsession and the light bulb moment went off! HAHA! Once I had this hot little die in my hand, it took me 10 minutes to make my card and i'm so very happy with it! Shawn helped me pick out the colors for this. We both had a glass of wine as I was making this and he chose the Crumb Cake card base over the white card base and I loved the look of it! I added my sentiment from the Open Sleigh set and a few pearls with Baja Breeze Taffeta and called it done! 

Hope you can find some time to play along with us this week! It's a great way to get those Christmas cards made before the holidays even get here!

So pretty, and I love that die too! Shawn has a good eye for color, and with a glass of wine I might have chosen a strange combination:) Very nice card Wendy!
