Tell you why I DO like Mondays :)



Who couldn't love Mondays with these three great challenges!  Todays inspiration comes from these funky colours at Colour Q, this great sketch from Mojo Monday, and this weeks Ribbon Challenge at There She Goes.  And if that wasn't enough, TGS has a fantastic sale on this week, with proceeds going to the Make a Wish Foundation!

LOVE, love, love this funky colour combo, and I have been itching to try these gorgeous puppy stamps and sentiments from There She Goes.  In case you can't read it, the sentiment reads "A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the nicest things you can be".  The puppies are coloured using black, red and pumpkin Marvy Markers - I added some spots to the smaller dog and gave them matching pumpkin-coloured noses and red collars.  I paper pieced the grass and die cut and pop-dotted the heart shape from My Favourite Things.  The papers are a mix from Kaisercraft and SEI, but would work fantastically using Stampin' Up papers too.  This gorgeous ribbon and cute paw-print brad are from my stash.  I knotted an extra piece of ribbon around my the flat piece across the page - it's much easier to end up with the words where you want them using this method! 

I hope you are having a glorious weekend too - and looking forward to Monday :)


This made me smile too!
