Flashback Friday and Merry Monday

Happy Friday, everyone!  As you are reading this, I am preparing for a weekend campout with 21 rowdy and hungry 10-12 year old boys! Woo! Hoo! I am praying that a cold front moves in and we have zero humidity for a few days!! Don't need to add stinky to the list of adjectives!!  I honestly have to admit that while this is usually a very hot and tiring weekend, I really enjoy it! Crazy, right?!

I am proud to announce that these are the last two cards using Merry Moments DSP (at least for now...)  I am still planning on using up some of my other older Christmas papers and of course there is the NEW paper that's sitting on my table begging to be used!  But for now, Merry Moments is being re-retired!

I used sketch #11 from Merry Monday and made two cards, both very similar, but using some different supplies.  I used  the retired corduroy buttons and brads on both.  I'm so glad I bought extras of those when they were in the clearance rack!!

I colored my rhinestones with a red sharpie so they would add some color and shine to the ornament.

I used up the last of my leftover scallop ovals from my cricut.  It was the wrong size for the intended project and I just knew I would find something that would work with this one!

My Flash Back items are: Merry Moments DSP, corduroy buttons and brads, the scallop oval, and the sentiment is from the retired set Star Studded Season.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and that it's raining if you need it and dry if you don't!!  -I found myself wishing for a way to collect and transport rainwater from flooded and soggy places to other parts of the world that are in dire need of the water...  Now that would be something worth researching!  But anyway... have a great weekend and I hope you find some time to be crafty!!

Card Recipes: Cardstock-very vanilla, Merry Moments DSP, Ink-chocolate chip, Stamp Sets-Tags til Christmas, Star Studded Season, Accessories-chocolate chip corduroy buttons and brads, linen thread, ornament punch, basic rhinestones
