Guest Designer A La Card Monkey

Oh happy day! I have another cute icon to add to my blog. The sweet ladies from the A La Card Monkey blog picked my Christmas in July card as a favorite. Because of that they asked me to design a card ahead of time for this week's challenge...a sketch along with using buttons and/or bows. Many thanks, girls!

I made a medallion using two pieces punched with the Scallop Circle Punch, along with a Real Red Button that came in the Brights Button Pack, then tied a piece of the 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon through it. I also stamped the flowers from the Upsy Daisy set in Real Red over a small piece of First Edition DSP. The silver embossed sentiment is also from Upsy Daisy. Please visit the A La Card Monkey blog, and see what the other ladies came up with. The samples are truly inspiring, and it's a great sketch.

I'm so jealous of all the demonstrators at the annual SU Convention this week. I'm sure going to try and get there next year. I've seen some fabulous sneak peeks from the upcoming Holiday Mini. Get ready for some more super products.

I hope you have a wonderful day! And, a special shout out wishing my friend Mary a happy birthday! Have a great one.
