Cure For The Monday Blues #3

Hello!

There is a new little challenge that is in its third week. I wanted to join in the first two weeks, but ran out of time. It's Taheera's Cure For The Monday Blues challenge. Taheera's inspiration photos really get the ideas flowing!

My card took the inspiration and pretty much transferred it onto card. I don't think you'll miss where I got the inspiration from, lol!
I used PTI Square Prints and Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamps. Ink is Memento Tuxedo Black. Two little bits of washi and a pretty brad (Studio Calico Snippets) finish it off.
Today is the last day of my holiday. I haven't achieved half of what I needed to get done. I'm back to work on Monday. :-(  I have totally enjoyed being at home, having the time to settle the kids into their new classes and dropping them to and from school. It's such a relaxed life when work doesn't take most of the day! :-)

Thanks for visiting!

So graphic and cool, Michelle! I love the blocks of black and white and the pop of color from the washi and brad! Perfect!

Oh. Wow!!!!! This is absolutely stunning! I love the bright coloured washi tapes and brad up against the monochrome blocks - just super! I know I've been useless at commenting on your blog lately, but I have been following every post through bloglovin and you are on fire! :) I'm off to make up for lost time now - apologies for the bombardment of your inbox! :)

You know, this was the first idea in my head when I was creating my own card for the challenge! *wink* I'm glad I went with my idea as yours is just fabulous! Love those patterned washis, they work so well! Thanks so much for playing to Cure The Monday Blues!
