Merry Monday Peaceful Season


I have the great pleasure of being the Featured Designer at Merry Monday this month!  We just started hitting ninety degree temperatures, so it feels a bit strange to be making Christmas cards.  :-)   For the first challenge, Katie has created a fun sketch:


I pulled out an old favorite set of mine that I just love.  My former upline gifted it to me a while back and I was oh so thankful.   I love the sentiments so much.   I love blue and silver for Christmas, so here I used Midnight Muse and Smokey Slate.  

Laila has been having a great time outside.  It seems to keep her from fussing too much.  Her 2 year molars are starting to come in and oh boy!   She's not been very pleasant to be around sometimes.  I treasure the sweet snuggles and reading time because she's so sweet and calm then.  :-)
