What a wonderful Monday!

Hello everyone! I hope your weekend went well. It's a wonderful Monday...that's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;) HAHA! I had so much fun this weekend with some new stamps that I ordered, as well as finally using some stamped images that I have received from friends.
Here is a card that I made with TGF's Forest Friends. This deer is such a dear! I made it for a Dear Friend of mine (pun intended, really) just to let her know she was on my mind.
I recieved the Top Note dies as a RAK from an SCS forum - she was so generous in cutting out a dozen of these for me. I love this die, it compliments any stamp. I also used 2 of my new punches - the MS butterfly and EK success leaf. I can't get enough of these.

In honor of the one and only Bambi, I decided to color this little guy in those colors, down to the white spots on his back. I didn't even realize I had a white marker until I started cleaning up my craft table. That's bad.

I made this next card with a stamped Magnolia image that a friend of mine sent me for two different challenges. Roses On Paper has this incredible layered sketch this week. The cool things is that it was done by Rosette, a fellow Club Anya Guest Designer! I used the color palette off of Color Challenge - rose red, barely banana, and pretty in pink. Very happy colors, and appropriate for this little Tilda.
And finally, an oldie but goodie. Does this SU carriage look familiar? Because it is soooo old! It's part of a set called Something To Celebrate, and is my go-to set for any occasion. There was a challenge posted on the MFT SCS forum (haha - these acronyms are funny!) to use buttons. I CASE-d this card off of the cover of the current Stamp It! cover. I loved the different layers. And since Fun Frilled is having a 'baby shower' for Molly, one of their DT members, I decided to make it a baby theme and enter it in that challenge too.
And a quick Money Savings Monday tip - is having a crazy clearance sale on a bunch of goodies. It's worth shopping in your pajamas! Have a wonderful Monday everyone! Smile, it makes the day go by faster. *Love and Aloha*
