Cure for the Monday Blues #3


How do you feel about Mondays? If you answered "Blah", then 
check out Taheerah's challenge--CURE FOR THE MONDAY BLUES.

I found some time to play along in Challenge #3. I love the patterns and pops of color.


Here's my take on the photo.


I was inspired by the ikat and the feathers on the throw so I inked up
Avery Elle's Ikat border and chose three feathers from my stash.

I white embossed the sentiment because I like the Dymo label look that I've been seeing 
from Aga and Tasnim, and I'm too lazy to look for my little gizmo.

Play along with Taheerah's challenge if you can.
It's an excellent cure for the Monday blues....or any day of the week.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
