Merry Monday #49

Happy Monday!

After a super busy week last week, I was finally able to get some time in my craft room to piddle this weekend. Ooooooh it was so nice. I get serious withdrawal if I go too long without making something. One thing that I did this past week though, that I am very happy about is, I went to the eye doctor. It was the first time since I was a small child! I am getting some glasses and I cannot wait! I have been struggling with my eyes for several years now, and wearing those little reading glasses from Wal-Mart. I have a jillion pairs of them lying around the house in various places, but of course never can find them when I want them. I just want to get up in the morning, stick something on my face and not take them off until I go to bed! So not next week, but the next, I should have my new cute little pink framed glasses! I'll be able to see! Yay!

Okay now to the super exciting news! I am so thrilled to be the guest designer at Merry Monday this week! Still pinching myself :)

This week they have a fun sketch that can be interpreted so many ways. I choose to do a square card like the sketch, because I rarely ever do them and thought it would be fun for a change. Luckily I found an envelope that fit! Below is the sketch and what I did with it :) I hope you will join in  the challenge at Merry Monday!

The cute little sled is from Whipper Snapper Designs, the snowflakes and swirl are from Papertrey Ink and the Joy circle is from Close To My Heart. The green paper is from g.c.d. Studios. I got it from Michael's. The red is from my stash of unknown origin :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous week!

  1. Congratulations on going to the eye doctor and getting your eyes checked out. I was surprised to hear you hadn't been since you were a child. I am so near sighted that I probably couldn't have functioned in life without glasses or contacts. LOL
    You'll be amazed when you first put them on. I still vividly recall that first moment after I got glasses. :)

    As for your card. LOVE it! You create beautiful cards, Kay. There's no other way to put it. You just do. :) The image looks fantastic with your coloring and you've got the right balance of detail and elements that make it so pleasing to look at. The recipients of your cards are so very lucky!

    Congrats on the guest designer spot. It's well earned! Have a great week. Hope you find more time to piddle around in your craft room. *Ü*

  2. Kay congrats on being the Guest Designer this week at at Merry Monday! Your card is just fabulous, as I expected it would be. Love the cute bag of toys and coloured perfectly. Also congrats on getting glasses. I got mine a year ago after wearing Walmart readers too. I love having them because I can see clearly now when I am reading something. I just need two more pairs for upstairs and my purse. LOL Have a great week!

  3. Congrats on being our Guest Designer this week at Merry Mondays! Your work is fabulous and this card is no exception! Love the different mix of papers with your SUPER adorable image! Wonderful job coloring too! Love it!
    Also a Congrats on getting your eye exam! I just had mine done for the first time ever a few weeks ago. I went straight into bifocals because I left my eye sight go too long. I was having alot of trouble reading & doing my crafts. Now i'm slowly weaning myself onto wearing my new glasses. The headache's & sick to my stomach feeling is starting to wear off but I am happy to say that I can see great with them on!!
    Have a great week! :)
