Man Oh Man Monday No. 21 | Celebrate Today

Monday is a state of mind, right?  Because I am posting this week's MOMM on Thursday.  Just ignore the day and concentrate on the card.

You may notice a trend of my using a journaling card (either hybrid or bought) as a jumping off point for my cards lately.  Well, it continues...and continues.

I began with a star card from Emily Merritt Designs' Free.  Another amazing digital kit of journaling cards that can be easily printed out for those who love hybrid or left as a digital element.

I further embellished the journaling card with printable elements from Studio Calico by Marcy Penner (aka Hello Forever).  I am afraid these particular elements are no longer available although they may make them available for a special sale like they did on Cyber Monday last year.  If you do like the elements I used, I recommend buying the Studio Calico printable files available right now from Marcy Penner (Geralyn Sy aka In a Creative Bubble and Natalia Buntar aka blinks of life also design wonderful printables), buying directly from Marcy Penner/Hello Forever or at Two Peas at a Bucket for limited edition printables designed by Marcy Penner/Hello Forever there along with other cool printables and cutting files.

Nearly all of the patterned paper used in this card are from a pile of "older" colorful papers I had cut up into 6x6 squares a while ago to facilitate their use in various projects.

Also in attendance is the sewing machine.  Why it took me so long to get that bad boy out I am not sure.  And why haven't I named him yet (the sewing machine has to be masculine because it is a Brother)?  A question for another day.

That yeah ticket is a  printable that I stamped the sentiment onto.  The photo corner is yet another idiosyncrasy of mine lately.  I stamped the frame from Life Framer onto green and cut the corner off of it.

Hope you have enjoyed this week's MOMM!
