Merry Monday Bananas

Oh Yeah - back in the swing of Christmas Cards on Monday......It was a fun easy sketch today - I added an extra element, but for the most part I stuck to Lesley's design.  I was glad to use these scraps to create the card - that was an extra bonus!

Allison was glad to see another set of her dance pictures make it to a page today for the 31 pages in 31 days - headed by Lyssa Zwolanek.  Lyssa used the Floral District paper today which was bright and "girlie" - that's what made me go through the dance pictures to see what I could use.  Subsequently, my page isn't quite as bright as Lyssa's sketch (I used the flip side of the paper she chose), but I had tons of fun creating it. 
I delved into my retired paper scraps to use the Glorious Green to go with the costumes, and then I just had to add some chunky glitter to the page.  What's a dance page without glitter!
The Title is done on MDS and then cut with a Framelit die.
Those little bananas are not Stampin'Up! of course...but we had purchased them to go with this page.

I finished my daily challenges, did some chores,  and finally had a wonderful evening visiting with family.  It's been a fabulous day - the beginning of a fabulous week.

Hope things are Fabulous in your little corner of the world.
Thanks for dropping by.

Love your Christmas card, Joan! The Gumball Green & Cherry Cobbler colors this year really make for some pretty holiday cards! Love that you used 2 different dsp for your panels and love the main image & the sentiment! The pearl finishes off your card perfectly! Love it!
Thanks for playing along with us this week over at Merry Mondays! :)
