Ah, Mondays!!

Mondays are often a conflicting time for me. We are usually so busy on the weekends that Monday is a tiring day back in the groove. And, we just came off driving 9 hours to Pittsburgh on Friday, a reunion on Saturday, and driving home 9 hours on Sunday. Add in poor sleep and poor eating, and you may have a disaster on your hands, at least in the life of a 4 year old. HOWEVER, I love Mondays because of Mojo Monday...I always look forward to it because it sort of kick starts my creativity. Then, I look forward to the other days of the week because I have a multitude of other fun challenges like Color Throwdown during the week! Today is no exception! I was actually able to combine two of my favorites: Mojo Monday #91 and Color Throwdown #46. LOVE them both!!

And, I can't believe that I have never had a Lily stamp from Pink Cat Studios...have I been living under a rock? My friend Heather sent me some images, and I couldn't wait to color them. Thank you, Heather. And, I'm sure Pink Cat Studios will thank you because I believe I will be making an order shortly!!

Heather said...

Nancy, your card is AWESOME!!!! Great job!! I'm glad you liked the images. Sadly the only time my Lily stamps have seen ink was when I stamped them for you. Your card has inspired me to actually use them. Great job!
