Happy Monday evening all!  It is a holiday Monday here so I was able to do a little extra crafting today =)

Good morning all!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Today is what we call "Saskatchewan Day"(the fantastically gorgeous province I live in) and therefore we get today off.  I have always said Monday holidays are the best!

This week at Merry Monday, I have chosen the theme of using PASTELS on your Christmas card:



Don't forget we are having a two week challenge!!  More time to get your creations in!

I was going to use a few pastel colours on my card, but then decided to go monochromatic mint on this one.  Not that I like to toot my horn, but I am super happy how this came out AND it was a snap to make.  TOOT TOOT

Smash It:


Happy Sunday all!  And a happy long weekend to all my Canadian friends!!  Yay us =)

The long weekend has given me a chance to craft AND do yard work.  There is one coat of stain on the front veranda and will be doing another one tomorrow.  Then the front will be officially finished and *maybe* my body will have a much needed break.  I can't seem to walk today LOL.  For real.  So crafting just seemed to be a no brainer =)
