~Case of the Mondays~

I'm amazed that a card was completed today....

inspired me to keep this card in neutral colors, just like her card.

This is the second time I die cut the Memory Box Jasmine frame die and chose the rustic innards instead of the detailed frame (which IS beautiful...I'll use it someday~).

 gave me a guideline on how to position the leftovers from the Ek Success Le Argyle punch....hmmm, I'm seeing a pattern here with leftovers.

Lately, I've been cooking bigger batches so there are leftovers to pull from on busier nights~I SO APPRECIATE LEFTOVERS!!!

This challenge inspired me to keep it brown and white-all natural like.

I've got a "case of the Mondays" as my husband put it this morning....not much to say except "HEY!"  ;)


Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps French Country
Punch: Ek Success Le Argyle
Dies: Memory Box Jasmine frame die
Ink:(Rich Cocoa)Memento Ink,Ranger Tim Holtz (Walnut Stain) for edging
Other:Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper


  1. I love WMS! This is one of my favorite stamps! I love your take on the the sketch!

  2. Oh great card, love that rooster!

  3. What a great idea - to use the insides of the die!! Perfect complement to the stamps you chose!!

  4. lol, leftovers are always welcome here too! LOL What a great take on her card! Love the WMS stamps! Thanks for playing with us over on CASE Study this week :)

  5. SO clever to use the negative part of your die - it makes it so interesting and really caught my eye!

  6. Rustic innards, heee! I love how it looks like a piece of cloth! Such cute little "stitched" x's at the bottom. Mr. Rooster looks right at home on this sweet CAS card!

  7. I'm with you on the leftovers! Though I could stand to actually use more of them on my cards instead of letting them pile up. :) I love the distressed sponging you've done around the image on your card. It has such a comfy, homespun look. Thanks for sharing it with us at CASE Study!

  8. Marlena, I love your idea to use the inside and I have to tell you it looks great! Sure gives a rustic feel to your card. You are so creative and go outside the box and I love that about you.

  9. Gosh, Marlena! Love the old-world french country feel. The use of innards is just brilliant! Looking forward to more "case of the Mondays!"

  10. Love that negative "mat"...
    perfect for this rustic beauty!!
    These stamps look amazing in the neutrals...
    but I guess I also think they always look amazing!*giggle*
    Beautiful, Marlena! :)


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
