Good Cheer - MM#100

Hello and HaPpY 1sT dAy Of SpRiNg!!!!! It's here! It's FINALLY here!!! Woot! Woot! Ironically, and in honor of this most auspicious of days, I made a Christmas card! BUAHAHAHA!

the inside:

My card is based off of Merry Monday #100:

Merry Monday is celebrating it's 100th challenge. It's an either/or/or both. I did both, cuz that's how I roll! LOL! I even created a literal interpretation of the photo - it was just so cute! Even more ironic - I used DCWV's Spring Mix Stack for this card. ☺ The presents are actually the cake layers from the PS - Hullabaloo set. I just stamped them on different papers, fussy cut and reassembled, then adhered over the pillow on the bench to hide it. Super easy!

That's it for now, but I will leave you with a cute picture of my fur baby, Colby, who is celebrating his 5th birthday today! Have a great day today and stay crafty my friends!
