Heartfelt Thanks

Mondays. Everybody views them differently. Some of us greet them with a big smile and a chipper attitude, ready for whatever adventure will unfold. Others may groan and mourn (I am definitely part of this group!! lol) the end of the weekend, knowing that there's another week of work, packing lunches and busy after-school schedules awaiting them. However you may choose to greet your Mondays, we can always offer a bit of cheer over at The Town Scrapper Blog during our Showcase Mondays. If you stop by for a visit at the beginning of every week, some of the Scrapettes will have gorgeous projects to show you featuring some of the product lines that Phebe carries at The Town Scrapper store.

It's been quite a while since I pulled out one of my Whiff of Joy stamps...too long really! This is "Melinda With Bouquet". Now, I don't think that Phebe has her in stock currently, but she has some other great Whiff of Joy stamps just waiting to find a new home. (she can always place an order for you if there is a particular stamp you are looking for) I have always loved the slightly "romantic" feel of this stamp line....Melinda is beautifully illustrated. I chose to pair her up with some pretty papers from the Basic Grey Porcelain collection. The sentiment is part of a Thank-You sentiment set from CC Designs, which is another company carried by The Town Scrapper.

Absolutely beautiful. The colours you have used make the image just fump off the page. A nice way to start the day I'd say --- And as far as Monday mornings go -- an old guys once told me that any morning he wakes up on the right side of the grass is a good day!
