Happy Monday!

Hi Everyone! I know, I'm not really supposed to put those two words together, right? But I have high hopes that the beginning of this week will be as good as the start of last week. The weather at the beginning of last week was so nice and it gave me all of this extra energy and put me in such a good mood (before it got all Fall-like by the end of the week!). But it's got to decide to fully be Spring sometime, right!?

Before I move on to my card for today, if you haven't been by Club Anya yet today you should head over. We are having a very cool contest and all of the details will be there. Believe me, you don't want to miss out on this!

My card today was done with Maisy, one of the Ketto stamps from Stamping Bella. I really like these stamps - so cute and kinda edgy! They look like they'd have a little attitude! The DP is DCWV, the Citrus Stack, and the ribbon is from Stampin Up. I colored her with Copics and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter:

Skin: R00, E00, E11
Clothes and Hair: R02,R05,R08, Y11,Y15,Y17

I am also showing the inside of my card because I really admire the beautiful insides (and outsides, too!) of Rosette's cards and she is inspiring me to think more of the inside as well. There is no sentiment yet because I don't know who this is going to or exactly what kind of card it wants to be yet!

Thanks for visiting me! I hope this is the beginning of a lovely week for you!
