It's a Monday Challenge with Squigglefly!

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia

Today is the Monday challenge over at Squigglefly! Remember that cool prizes are always up for grabs, so I hope that you will play along with us! Today's challenge is to use a fun border on your creation - either by using a neat punch or by creating your own.

I started with this most precious image by Cheryl Alger called 'Share the Love'. I dug into my most precious Daisy D's paper stash...... heavy sigh........ oh how I miss them....... okay, must get over it....... heavy sigh, cleansing breath...... still have Basic Grey...... okay, I think I am okay now..... phew, still have about 6 more packs in my supply so I am good for a while longer......... alright.... can breathe again.........

where am I? oh yes, my cute little card with this MOST adorable image...... used this fun Fiskars border punch and a sketch layout from Papertake Weekly. Added a sentiment of my own prior to printing, some wonderful vintage buttons, a neat vintage ledger paper circle, and finished with a gorgeous organdy ribbon. The card base edges were inked with white craft. I love the vintage look to this precious little girl, so wanted to keep with that for the overall feel of the card. I used to have some shoes just like these back when I was in high school. LOVED THEM! actually wore them all through my 20's until I couldn't find them anymore in stores.

Hope everyone has a most glorious day! these dag-nab seizures won't leave me alone and I have SO MUCH to get done this week..... oh well, I am still very very blessed each and every day. what is a bit of shaking to get in the way? just need to turn on the ol' rock and roll music and shake to the beat! grins! chat with ya later! :)
