Make It Monday #52

Hi there, it's Monday again!

My head is spinning the weeks are just going so fast, actually maybe it is just this awful flu making my head spin. My youngest son and I have been feeling pretty ordinary these last few days.

Before I get down to Make It Monday business I just wanted to send out a hello to all my followers living on the East Coast USA. I am hoping that you have all faired ok with the passing through of Irene.

Some of you will remember that we evacuated ahead of Cyclone Yasi back in February so I can imagine how scary it must have been for all of you.

Ok now, lets talk about MAKE IT MONDAY

Another fabulous week last week, with an exceptional selection of talent on display.

Congratulations to this week's winners.

For my card this week I have used the cutest Lil Monster about town from our fabulous sponsor this week.

Isn't he just the cutest?! He is so much fun to colour and his little shirt is just perfect for paper piecing.

This week we are sponsored by the very lovely (and super talented) Andrea over at

AnnaBelle Stamps is an Australian based online store specialising in it's own line of clear photopolymer stamps and embellishments, and digi images and papers. They have a growing range of supplies for the cardmaker and crafter, and a challenge blog for inspiration! Be sure to visit them soon!
Andrea is generously offering the Branch Out stamp set to the winning commenter.

Annabelle Stamps are celebrating their 2nd Birthday and have a fun filled promotion running that you will definitely want to be a part of!.

Now, on to the only part about Make It Monday each week.
Choosing one entry to feature as my favourite.
Oh boy, this took ages for me to decide this week but in the end I chose
This stunning card from Silke
I just sit and look at this beautiful card in complete awe. I wish I could create cards in this style. I love the texture that Silke has given it and the bright happy colour.
Silke has the most amazing blog, please pay her a visit and let her know you found her through Make It Monday.
Thanks so much for sharing with us Silke.
This weeks MIM linky party is now open. The Design Team have come up with some positively gorgeous cards to get you all inspired.
Please come along and join in the fun.
Thank you for stopping by today.
Michelle :o)
