Cure for the Monday Blues


I hope your weekend is going well :)  I have ignored the housework and played in my craftroom instead - it is the best way to destress after a hectic week....

I have been wanting to play along with Taheerah's fabulous Cure for the Monday Blues all week and this is what I came up with:

I stamped a scalloped border from Paper Smooches on a Reverse Confetti tag and combined it with a ME hello die stacked up several times.  I also stamped the chevrons from the same Paper Smooches set in the background.  I love a black and yellow colour combo and picked up the scallops, hello and heart from the inspiration photo:

I will also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes - I think this is my third entry.

You can get the Paper Smooches border stamps, Reverse Confetti and ME dies from Make the Day Special.

I hope you like it :)

Thanks for stopping by,
