Monday Montage #210

Hey friends ... we are back with the Monday Montage Girls. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to create and share something I love. Crafting has always been therapeutic for me (since I was a little girl). And Heaven knows I have really needed it this weekend ...

Spring is on its way, and nothing feels more like spring to me than ladybugs and flowers. We had more snow today, but the weather on Friday was absolutely gorgeous ... hopefully we will be getting more of THAT kind of weather before too long.

I added a little hand-drawn stitching using my chalk marker. With a little help from the vellum doilies, Whisper White craft ink and a sponge I was able to create a little bit of a "lacy" background effect here, too! Some polka dots with the aid of the Polka Dot embossing folder and I had it.

Stamps: Hello Ladybug
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Versamark, Chalk Marker
Accessories: Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Ladybug Punch, Vellum Doilies, Checks & Dots Embossing Folder, Stapler, Faux Linen Ribbon (from the Flowers for Every Season Combo Pack)

This post is very brief. The past week has been a rollercoaster and a whirlwind all wrapped into one. My dear, sweet mama went to meet my daddy in Heaven last Wednesday. It has been a long road for us ... years and years of struggles are finally over for my mama ... and as sad as I am for us, I am very happy for her as she is no longer trapped in a body with so many infirmities and a mind that was foggy. I will probably talk a little more about this in future posts, but as of now I am both physically and emotionally wiped out. I really am ok (and thanks to so many of you who have reached out with your love and support). Grief is a process for sure!

Here's a blog roll just in case you get "stuck" trying to hop around ...
