JUGS #215 Along with a Merry Monday!




MM New Look Sketches-016

Hello Friends,

My talented teammate Marisa over at Just Us Girls has picked a perfect color palette for us this week!

Then, as I was perusing my favorite blogs…I realized it would be fun and easy to combine it with the Merry Monday

inspirational photo that my new sweet friend Lesley picked out this week over at Always Playing with Paper!!

 I love to go and visit her site because she is uber talented and ohhhhhh so busy!  I don’t know how she does it all!!

I have been wanting to play along with MM’s challenge for quite sometime…and finally…it happened!!!

Now, how about a few details on my card:

Cardstock and paper are SU, Bazill, and scraps.

The sentiment is from Gina K.

The ornaments were made with my Cricut.

The 2 wooden stars were stained with ink, the rest are punches including the hearts.

The background is a striped SU embossing folder…then sanded.

The wavy strip at the bottom is from Creative Memories.

Lots of distressing, many pop dots, and some candy dots.

Now please head on over to my JUGS team and see what they have done with these awesome colors, and while

your at it, there is still time to join Lesley over at Merry Monday’s where it’s always Christmas!

I have linked everything up for you!!!

Please join me!!!!

Happy creating,
