Monday Blues...?


I'm still hanging in here and getting bigger by the day! I will share a 'bump' photo tomorrow, hopefully the weather will be a little brighter and less gloomy so I can get a decent picture. I'm back at the hospital tomorrow for another scan and they're going to be every two weeks, so I'll be practically living there! Plus, time is flying by at the moment with SO much to do, think of and fit in, can't it slow down just a little?!

Anyway, I found some time this evening to squeeze in a little crafting and make a card...

I decided to 'play' along with a couple of challenges. First I decided to use the current 'Less is More' challenge HERE and seen below which is a sketch challenge.

I then saw Taheerah's new Cure For The Monday Blues challenge HERE and seen below and was inspired by a few of the bright colours.

As you can see I kept it really simple. I used the solid bloom from Flower Power #2 and combined it with a label from Label Love: Thank you and two sentiments from A Gift For You. I was pleased to discover that the 'Just For You' sentiment fit perfectly inside the label. I love making discoveries like that :)

Don't forget there is still time to hop along & comment HERE to be in the chance of winning a prize! That's all from me today, I hope to stop by again tomorrow with another card. Until then, thank you for stopping by today & I hope you are all well :)

Card Stock: White (Boyes)
Ink: Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores & Smokey Shadow
Stamps: Uniko Studio Flower Power #2, Label Love: Thank you & A Gift For You
Accessories: Papertrey Ink Doily Die, Foam Adhesive & SU! Candy Dots.


  1. Hi Bev. I really like this one, I think it is a little different for you and I love the circular lattice that offsets everything.Love the colours...a very happy card. Good luck with the scans, don't get too busy that you can't take a breather and enjoy this time. hugs xx

  2. This is gorgeous Beverley - this adorable colour combination of yours never fails to impress. I'm just linking my LIM card up and needed to pop over here for Ren-Yi's link so caught sight of yours. It's divine. xx

  3. Bev you always create such pretty cards. Love that stamp set so much!

  4. Another bright and beautiful CAS-card! Love the colours! Can imagin that you are growing quickly; the two want to grow... Saw the difference with a frend of mine in carrying twins... Hope you get everything done that you want...hugs, Gerrina

  5. So pretty, Bev ... such lovely colours! You need a pause button! Anita :)

  6. Bev, your card with the lattice doily (is that the correct description) is lovely! Pretty flowers on either side of the sweet sentiment have me dazzled and delighted once again. Visiting your blog always adds sparkle to my days! Be sure you're taking care of yourself and the two little bundles you're carrying! You know we'll be here for you, so take time when you need it, and post when you can! Thinking of you often! You're going to be such an amazing mom! Quick story: one of our teachers has just become dad to twin boys, and the other day, he shared photos: one was dressed in a onesie with the front half of a dachshund dog, the other with the other half. When they snuggled together (major cute), the two onesies created the image of the entire dog. Super darling (they have a dachshund who is trying to figure out where these "human puppies' came from). Hugs to you~c

  7. Gorgeous card, so fresh and pretty and I love that circular scalloped edge die cut.

  11. This is so striking Bev! Love the doily providing a crisp white contrast to your bright blooms! Love the pop of yellow in their centres too! Thank you *so* much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
