Merry Monday #22

Good afternoon, blogger friends.  It's a beautiful, cool day here in Fort Wayne.  It's nice to give the air conditioner a rest!

My card today is for Merry Monday #22 sketch.  Once again, I liked this sketch so much that I did 5 of this card.   I used a cherry cobbler card stock base and used an embossing folder for the background.  My DSP is Snowy Jo: Snow Soiree by Imaginisce.  I love the fancy snowflakes with just a touch of glitter.  I embossed my main image with the Northern Flurry folder and sponged the image with some more cherry cobbler.  I popped it up on a large scallop circle with some dimensionals and added some bling with some rhinestones.  The sentiment comes from SU Petite Pairs which always seems to be perfect in small spaces.

I know I'll be taking a break from card making soon as I go to visit/help my daughter with baby number 2.  She has a doctor appointment on Wednesday so I'll be able to figure out then if I need to travel sooner than the 12th.  I'm looking forward to the arrival of this little one!

Thanks for stopping by!  I love to read your comments.
