Another Monday is here and a brand new month of sketches here at Merry Monday! A special thank you to my friend Colleen Dietrich for being such a lovely Featured Designer for May! Thank you Colleen, your cards were spectacular and I loved getting to know you!!!
June is here and summer is around the corner, I know how challenging it is to think "Christmas" but I am so proud of all my blogging friends, old and new, who have gotten a head start on their Christmas creations! If you completed all the sketches for May, please grab the badge below for your blog! Congrats! I have also put the other past monthly badges there, in case you missed some!
I am also thrilled to introduce my Featured Designer for June, Vicki Burdick! I have always admired Vicki's work and her wonderful style with card making! She creates the most inspiring cards and I was so pleased when she agreed to join me for June! Welcome to the team Vicki! I also asked her to share a bit about herself!
Hi all! My name is Vicki Burdick and I am so thrilled that Lesley invited me to be a Merry Monday maker for the month of June, I am so looking forward to creating along side all the girls here. I have been "stamping" since 2005 when I went to my first Stampin' Up party with a friend. I was hooked right away although I do love all types of crafting! I live in a small town in southwest Missouri, I have been married to my wonderful hubby for almost 36 years and we have one daughter and alot of cats!! I am looking forward to getting a jump start on my Christmas cards!!
My card this week was really simple to put together. Using my 5-Petal Punch (which is now retired) I created a poinsettia out of Real Red Glimmer paper. I decided to keep my card nice and clean, so that the poinsettia and the sentiment could take centre stage! I also went clean and simple with my card, because of the wonderful challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays to use bling on your CAS project!
