One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday # 160

I am with my BFF, Linda and we spent the day making cards.
She saw yesterday that the Merry Monday Challenge was a "newsprint"... we were at Impress, a stamp store in Tukwila, Washington and we looked for newsprint paper, couldn't find any, but did find these newsprint tags, so I bought it for us to use.
The poinsettia is from Clearly Besotted:  Pretty Poinsettia which I fussy cut! The greenery is from
PTI Peaceful Pinecones and the sentiment is PTI:  Keep it Simple:  Christmas.
I had a great time watching my granddaughters play volleyball, unfortunately my younger one, who is 11 got hurt on the first match of the tournament and was unable to play the rest of the games.
On Sunday we had to be at the gym at 7:30 and my older granddaughter didn't finish until after 9:30 PM... that was ONE LONG day in the gym!!  I bailed on Monday... had my husband drive me to Tukwila to meet up with Linda so we could do some shopping.  I am staying with her until Friday, then I will take the train home.
It is always more fun to craft with a friend!
Have a great week friends!
