Merry Monday - July Entry #4

Since I can't link more than 1 post on the Merry Monday linky:

Merry Monday - July Entry #3

Apparently I can't link more than 1 photo per post on linky. Here's my 3rd card for the Merry Monday challenge:

UPDATE! Lesley has chosen this card as one of the July winners!!!!! This means I will be an upcomming guest designer on the Merry Monday Challenge over at Always Playing With Paper... I cannot wait!!

Merry Monday - July Entries!!

I think that when Lesley from Always Playing with Paper called a break... I took a break from blogging too! lol And honestly, I didn't know if I'd ever get my July Merry Monday cards done... but I'm proud to say I am posting them today!!

So, instead of a weekly challenge, we were able to select 4 previous Merry Monday sketches and submit them anytime in July.

As a bonus twist, for myself, I decided to make all the cards with my CTMH Wonderland paper pack and I used 2 Stampin' Up holiday stamps.

Here are my entries:

I will try to post better pictures later... I'm exhausted now. Just got back from an 8km walk!!! Pretty much ready to call it a day, even though it's not even 7pm :( lol

Nursery Name Art - Balloons

Hi Everyone,

We finally got to meet our super cute niece Jazmine this past week! This is what I made for her nursery:

It was actually my boyfriend's idea to have a blue elephant in the art since that's apparently her favourite toy! And... she does a pretty ridiculously cute monkey face, so I had to make her a monkey!

Hang In There - Sympathy Card

Finding an idea for this card was extremely difficult, but eventually this idea came to me and I think it is absolutely perfect!

 Early this week, our nephew passed away. Even though he was extremely ill since birth, his death came as a complete shock. He was going on 3 years old despite doctors' timeline of a couple weeks (after birth), if that. His story is extremely devastating but that never affected how much his parents loved him, nor how hard they fought to keep him with us. To his family, he was a miracle, and a kick-ass warrior prince!

I didn't want to make just any sympathy card... so, this is what I created:

Dee & Shal, you two are the strongest, most loving, most amazing people I've ever met, and you gave your son a wonderful life full of love! Jediah will always be in our hearts.

I did not forget about you!

Hi everyone :)

I did not forget about you!! I just haven't been creating very much... my computer was also broken and I've been very busy. Actually, I have been creating... but not cards... lots of paper roses for my centerpiece topiaries!

I hope to be back soon, regularly posting new projects!
