Merry Monday #100

Good morning friends and HAPPY SPRING!!  The sun is shinning, balmy temps in the 60's, green on the trees, and flowers budding everywhere....NOT!!!!!  At least not in my neck of the woods...just another layer of the white stuff.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!  Have I mentioned I'm SICK of winter?!!  Ok, I'm done complaining, so let's get on to celebrating.  Our youngest turns 19 today (Happy Birthday Calla!!) and Merry Monday's is celebrating their 100th challenge with a merry and bright color combo and neat layout:


Are these fun colors or what?!!  And because the colors were so bright and festive, I figured a fun card was in order!  Like this:



Doesn't she just make you smile from ear to ear?  I love this bright and cheery color combo with this little cutie by Stampendous!  I used Copics (G14, RV06, E00, & E02) to color her and a Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle die to cut out the top layer of my card.  The hot pink and white dotted design paper is from Recollections, and the rest of the DSP are scraps from my scrap bin.  I added a little Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine (SU!) and a few diamond rhinestones to finish off my card.  Never would have thought of using these two colors for Christmas, but I have to admit I'm really kind of hooked and you just may see more of this color combo from me! :0)

Make sure you check out all the other great cards at the Merry Monday site here .

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and come back tomorrow to see my daughters birthday card with her color choice: orange and green ...... REALLY?!!!  Ok, stay tuned!  And have a wonderful Thursday and 1st day of Spring! :0)
