Monday Fun Day with Polka Dots, Pink & Two Ribbons...
Wouldn't it be great if there was a saying for Monday that made you feel just as good as you do when you say "TGIF"? lol.... Well I guess the closest that we can get is, Monday Funday over on the awesome Farm Fresh Challenge blog for The Greeting Farm. This week's challenge is to use polka dots, pink and two ribbons. Sounds like a very fun challenge to me!
I needed to make a Birthday card for my friend's Granddaughter so of course I thought that this formula would work out perfectly for me. I grabbed little Amelia from the OA Surprise set and gave a her a slighly darker version of my newest favorite hair color. lol... I'll wear it out sometime soon I am sure, but until then I am having a great time seeing how many different variations I can come up with. Amelia is a sweet little one, so I helped her to wrap up her gifts with some pink and yellow polka dot paper along with some pretty blue that shines. I think her gifts are going to be the hit of the party. As the Birthday Girl is turning 9 it gave me the opportunity to use some twill ruler tape/ribbon that I have had for a little while. I think I like how it came out and kind of highlights that fact that she is 9 years old.
Well, I hope that you all had a great weekend. It was nice to have some down time even thought I had just finished a vacation. Some times you seem to need a vacation from the vacation. lol... I am pretty sure that with the exception of waking up a 4:30am each morning that I was able to get in quite a bit of sleep this weekend. Of course that was between coloring, reading my book on my Nook and playing Angry Birds and trying desperately to beat my score. OMWord, I swear I am addicted to this silly game and I spend way too much time playing it. It's all about strategy and I love it. lol...
I hope you all have a super week. Mine is starting out busy as always and I have to work until 6pm and then go grocery shopping for the week. I love going shopping, but I usually don't get home until way after 7 or 8pm by the time all is put away and done. grump, grump grump! :O)
Before I head off to my nice warm water bed for the night let remind you all to check out the Farm Fresh Challenge blog and be sure to play along with us for your chance to win one of the AWESOME stamps from The Greeting Farm. See you there.
