Merry Monday #23

Some of you may be thinking I’m ahead, two cards in one day!  But no, I’m actually behind:(  It’s very late Friday night and I’m just now posting my Merry Monday card!  It’s actually been a very upsetting week here with lots of family drama:(  It’s so relaxing to just sit and make cards:)  I needed lots of  card “therapy, so…… two cards:)

Here is the Merry Monday sketch:

I LOVE this card!  I used one of my favorite images.  It’s from Print Shop!  Seriously, I have used this image for years on my return address labels!  Here is my card:

It was really pretty simple, lots of straight lines;) The image is straight out of the Print Shop gallery.  It’s actually been in a number of different versions, as I said, I’ve been using this image for years.  I don’t know why it never occurred to me to put it on a card.

I printed the image on my favorite paper, “photo project paper-matte” from Target. The paper I used, I bought at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago.  It was in a large 12/12 pad.  The plain grey in the front matches the grey with the snowflakes.  The snowflakes on the paper were white and I sponged Very Vanilla craft ink on top of them to match more with the image.

Please see the list below for the rest of the supplies I used:)

It’s after midnight so I need to wrap up and head to bed.  Thanks for dropping in today:)  I hope you enjoy both of my cards:) Be sure to pop over to Merry Monday to see what everyone else has done with this weeks sketch:)
