Happy Monday!

Stamps: Cross Stitch Tilda; sentiment retired SU! Paper: Basic Grey Urban Prairie; Rose Red; Black; Pink Pirouette Other: White Brads; Nesties; Martha Stewart border punch Card Measure 6.5 x 4.5

Hello! How are you all doing this Monday? I am still down the Cape, but I made this sweet little Tilda last week. This is the cross stitch Tilda...isn't she cute?? Look at her knee socks! I was very prissy when I was little and wore dresses and knee socks almost every day until I was about 10! Right now I can't even remember the last time I wore a dress! LOL

Kristen and I went to the Creating Keepsakes convention a couple of weeks ago. We go every May when they come to NH. The past few years we hadn't been that impressed. I guess it is hard to sell us much! Especially with all the online stores now. And Creating Keepsakes is (obviously) geared more towards Scrapbookers, not card making or stamping. But the online store Embellish It! was there and they have great papers and stuff...so I stocked up on my favorite 6x6 Basic Grey pads. Kristen suggested I buy this Urban Prairie one and she was right...I love it! It's an older one and I don't know why I didn't already have it. But the papers are scrumptious! Glad I bought 2. :)

It's 12:30 here....earlier than most of my posts. :) But I better be off to bed...Maeve is not a great sleeper and being in a strange bed makes it worse...I am sure that she will be awake soon...meaning I will have to cuddle...but I will try and get some sleep before then.

I hope all my fellow Americans are enjoying their bonus weekend day!

Have a Cheerful Monday!!

Beautiful card! FWIW, I use CM products in my cardmaking. I love their circle and oval templates for the Shapemaker system and their circle punches. It's handy to have 2 size shapes in the same punch. (And, no, I'm not a CM rep, lol)
