Songbird Cards

This is my second Monday post...

I feel a little more energetic than usual on a Monday.

I should probably pace myself but I don't want the energy train to stop anywhere or I may not move again.

My first card uses a soft palette from the Throwdown challenge.

These next two cards are more "me"...

in yo' face bold and simple.

Simon Says (Wednesday): Clean and Simple Christmas

I'm all about stripes lately too...

Here is another I constructed from the section cut off from the first striped panel.

Why make only one card when you can construct two, right?!

Hope your Monday is sparked with energy for the long week ahead~
