Merry Monday Sparkles

Hope you are ready for the weekend!  I know I am.  I actually thought Caleb would be more tired after a week of school but he wasn't too bad.  I was excited that I didn't have to make any lunches tonight!!!

I wanted to Tackle the Merry Monday sketch this week.  I really love how I can get my Christmas cards at least started before I actually need them!  If I start in January I should be good to go by next Christmas!

Blue and Silver aren't my favourite Christmas colours but I didn't think the snowflake would look too good in a colour other than silver!  I decided to pair the silver up with Midnight Muse (since it's my new favourite!).  I added a lot of dimension to this card oh and don't forget the bling!!!

The embossing folder is retired but I still do love it for Christmas cards!

Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
DSP: Midnight Muse Paper Stack
Stamps: Quint-Essential Flower, Mixed Medley
Ink: Midnight Muse, Versamark
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Bitty Banners Framelits, Embossing Folder (I can't remember the name...sorry!), Scalloped Circle Punches, 3/4" Circle Punch, Basic Rhinestones

Okay so one more picture of my babes...this is Caleb's first day of school (Tuesday).  I made them pose of them was more excited than the other...tonight though they couldn't wait to sleep together!  They are in Jacob's bunk beds happy as little bugs in rugs!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous weekend!
