Happy Monday!

It's Monday again! My favorite day of the week. LOL! Actually, I had a much better week, last week, so facing this Monday isn't quite so bad.

In the midst of creating several things that I can't yet share, I was able to create a couple of cards just for fun. I got my huge order from Emma's the other day. In it was some Prima Shabby Chic. Oh my! How I LOOOOVE this line! The colors and style is so me. So, here's what I whipped up.

I embossed the cardstock on this first one. The buttons are from A Million Memories and I adore them. I love how they go with the embossed background.


This next card uses some of the same elements. I added a pleated strip. I've been doing a lot of pleats lately. LOVE the texture.




I saved the scraps from the paper because I love it so much. I'm sure you'll be seeing a couple of more cards with it. :)

Speaking of cards, I wanted to share a new inspriation site with you. My friend Debbie Marcinkiewicz has just launched The Shabby Tea Room. I"m always looking for inpiration and if it has anything to do with 'Shabby', I'm in! Definitely head over and check out her blog. I'm hoping to post my card for the challenge later on this week.

Well, that's it for this morning. Thanks for stopping by!
