A Monday closer

Hi there ,hello to you ,and  to you .Thanks so much for calling in .Welcome to my room . Hope you are well .
Hi to my newest followers Tina, [no contact blog yet]  and Helen from
I know Helen and her craft talent and can recommend her blog for a visit .
Here it is another Monday closer to Christmas . I must admit that Christmas here will be pretty quiet as we have seen all our children , Danny , Sonny and Michelle . We have given out the pressies and sent off all the cards I could manage . I think Doug and I will have a ham /chicken sandwich picnic in the park on Christmas Day .
Now being Monday , the Make it Monday Linky Party thingy will be in full swing by now . Hope that you will still have time to show us something , old or new , this week .

Here is my card to share .

The striped and the dotty papers are digi papers from this weeks sponsor .Webster's pages Journaling Cards were used for sentiments ,front and inside . Image on front was from a free set that came with a magazine and the inside is a 3D sticker I've had for YONKS.
 We were given some papers  to choose from  to download and print out . Thank you very much , Mandy.
            The wonderful prize this week is a CD with the winner's choice of 4 collections!
Do pop over and see the fab selection of papers for all occassions . You  might be pleasantly surprised.
Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!
CONGRATS to last week's winners .
And while you are out and about on the PC , please do call in on the ladies of the Design  Team to see who they have chosen from last week's entries .

  1. Shirley, I LOVE your bright and cheerful card! So fun and just as cute as can be.

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Y'all sound like Jim and I - we'll probably be doing about the same thing as you will on Christmas Day.


  2. Lovely card Shirley-anne.I do love the papers, so pretty,and the little zebra is soo cute.Great pick from last week, very pretty card.

    Luv CHRISSYxx

  3. Delightful, bright colourful papers and love the little zebra.

  4. Another fun card. You use some great images, and lots of cheerful colours. I am taking a break from cards now as my Christmas ones are all posted or ready for hand-delivery next week. This week I am making mince-pies. I have orders for over fifty dozen again and I have only done twenty dozen so far. Last week our youngest son was here. It was a delight to spend time with him, but of course, very little useful work was done.
    I can't imagine a chicken sandwich picnic on Christmas Day. Hopefully we will see some sunshine, maybe enough for a drink outside with the hounds for company, but I shall do the full traditional turkey dinner even though it is just for the two of us. Anyway, however you spend it, I hope you have a lovely day. Kate x

  5. Love those bright colours shirley...and always love anything websters pages! Thank you for your kind comments over on my blog, Love helen

  7. How bright and happy is your card, Shirley-Anne. Love the papers and the zebra is huggable. Lovely sentiment too.

    The idea of a picnic with ham and chicken sandies sounds so NICE... I love picnics but sadly there are not many places in Jakarta where we can go to picnic. As a child I remember what fun it used to be to pack the picnic hamper...

    The card of the week is beautiful.
