Just another "manic" Monday!!

Do you remember that song?? "Just another manic Monday . . . wish it were Sunday . . . that's my fun day . . . . " For some reason, it's stuck in my brain and I've been humming it for hours. So . . . I decided I'd mention it and see if I could get you to start humming it too! Then we could do a little harmony! hehe! Seriously . . . does anyone know who sang it?? 'Cuz I can't, for the life of me, remember!!

Oh wait . . . I'm not here to talk about songs . . . I'm here to show you my latest Sugar Nellie DT project!! What'cha think?
This quirky image is another one from Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie! It's called "Belle Flower" and is available HERE at Funky Kits. Here's a close-up . . .
Once again, I've used Tim Holtz Distress Inks! I'm still learning . . . by trial and error, I'm afraid! hehe! But, I feel like I'm getting better!! And I just think these Leanne Ellis images are perfect for Distress Inks . . . since they look sort of "vintage-y"! Here's a bit of a side view . . .

Beautiful card as usual! Love the colors.

The song was sung by The Bangles. And, yes, now I'm singing it right along with you!

I love this card. The image is gorgeous and beautifully coloured. The papers, design and embellishments are stunning.
The Bangles sang Manic Monday. It sure is annoying isn't it when these songs get stuck in our heads. Lets see if you start humming Agadoo.
Sorry!!!
Hugs Sharon. x
