Scallopped Monogram Challenge

Sadly, today is the last day of Denise's Spring Fever Challenge. It has been a great mojo-motivator for me. I have actually stamped and completed at least one card every day this week! What a sense of accomplishment, since I also got a lot done at work, and got DS packed up and off on his adventure with DH.

Today's challenge had to incorporate scallops, our favorite color, a monogram, and ribbon. Here's my cute little monogram card, cut out with my Nestabilities Scallop Circle die. The dp is Miss Elizabeth's (from the dollar store!) and the monogram is a rub-on from Marcella K at Target. Flowers are Primas and small holographic flowers I got in a RAK, along with the chipboard sticker that the monogram is on.

Well, since I've been up since 4:30, I'm HUNGRY! Time to go start getting ready for work. I might even have time to run to Starbuck's before I have to be there! Woohoo! But don't be fooled - getting up at 4:30 am will NEVER become a regular habit for me, no matter how much I accomplish.

Have a happy Friday, everyone! Thanks for looking!

Beautifully done.
What great ideas. I am running to the dollar store to get some designer paper. The other day I was looking for some paper with patterns and most of what I had was plain. xx

I love the PP from Miss Elizabeth's. I make a run to the dollar store every week! She has some cute stuff!

Thanks for the kind comment about Emily. She can be such a ham! Just ask Dawn! LOL
