 happy wednesday :) this week over at CCC jeri has us using a Monogram. i have to say at first i struggled with this because im not a fan of the monogrammed type of stuff.  in fact i made a card, which you will see later this week,showed it to my crafty buddy who agreed the monogram HAD to go :)  at first i left it then sat down here and started this post and all the sudden a whole different idea came to mind.   so jeri picked a great challenge for me. thanks my friend! so.. heres what i came up with it. i made it for my beautiful daughter brandi

                              can you find the monogram ? it took my mom and kiddo  a few minutes :)
smarty pants :) yep i put the letter b in a flower pot..added vines and flowers. my daughter is a 'shroom fan and just got 5 of these fungi tatted on her lower back so i of course had to add some of those.

my cricut and Jasmine cartrdige (letter B)
walk in my garden cartridge ( flower pot and yellow flowers. i cut them in ivory card stock and colored them with colorbox fluid chalk 
studio g $bin stamp ( mushrooms again cut in ivory cardstock and inked with colorbox fluid chalk)
home decor cartridge (swirls/vines throughout the letter b)
Paper dcwv ( the butterfly and blue flowers and vines are pre~printed on the paper, pretty huh!)
thanks so much for hangin ghere with me a few and your sweet words leave me with a smile thank you ! have a great day :) xxxshelly

Hey girlfriend...this is the most creative use of a monogram I've ever seen. Your such a genius. Just love, love, love it. Sorry I made you put your thinking cap on for this one. I guess that's why the call them challenges...huh! Your results are just fantastic and Brandi's going to love it.
