Not a Very Merry Monday 41

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Nick's basketball team ended their season with a win! So that was fun and exciting! Now we have the district tournament to look forward to at the end of this week! I think that basketball has worn him out! He is ready for a little vacation! I didn't seem to get much done yesterday - ugh! I hate it when that happens! So I really need to focus and get going! Here's hoping that it all comes together today!

Today's card was inspired by the Merry Monday sketch at Always Playing with Paper. I love the trio of circles (or any shape that you might want to have)! The Merry Monday sketch challenge is meant to be a Christmas card but I am still trying to get as many fall cards in as I possibly can. So I went in a different direction but still used the sketch. And that is also the reason for the blog title - lol! A very easy card! I adhered a strip of Orchard Harvest designer paper to the front of a Crumb Cake card base and then three 1 3/8" punched circles from Early Espresso. On Very Vanilla I stamped the apple from Perfectly Preserved in Raspberry Ripple and the stem in Lucky Limeade three times then cut them out using the Cannery framelits dies. These are popped up onto each circle. Then I stamped the greeting from Made for You in Early Espresso. And you can probably tell that I had to punch out my greeting from another piece of Crumb Cake. That is because I messed it up on my card and didn't want to take it all apart to do it over. And I do wish that I had added some rhinestones. That would have been really cute, too. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
