Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

Merry Monday - Blue, Gold with White or Silver





Hi everyone - busy week ahead so I'm here for a quick post. Colleen's color challenge on Merry Monday this week is to use Blue and Gold with White or Silver. Yummy combo - couldn't wait to play along. 



Here's my card:

Merry ornament
Supplies: Paper - Hero Arts Azure Folded card; Neenah Solar White cardstock; DCWV foiled cardstock
Dies - Hero Arts DC168 Winter Cheer Tag Set by Lia; Sunny Studios Merry die from  "Santa's Helpers" set
Stamp - Hero Arts CG685 Hand Drawn Snowflakes
Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Salty Ocean
Other - Darice assorted sequins

Sorry for the short post! Be sure to check out Merry Monday for Christmas card inspiration. Sadly for us but happily for the Merry Makers, they are taking off July and August for some family fun. No worries, we can always check back on earlier challenges for inspiration or, like my friend Heather Maria & I plan to do, make up your own weekly challenges. Stop back next Monday to see what I came up with to challenge her and anyone else who wants to play while Merry Monday is on hiatus.

Thanks for stopping and have a crafty week!!

This is so gorgeous Linda. The stamped background really sets off the cut ornament. The sequin drop is genius!. Good on you doing 'friend' challenges.
