Get Well Wishes

It seems this time of the year there are an assortment of bugs around.
Coughs and colds, sneezes, aches and pains. All in addition
to the normal illnesses and conditions.  So really, when you think of it,
there will always be someone who needs to know we are thinking of them.

We would like to see a card sending your thoughts or get well wishes.
Let's see the creations from the Design Team.

#2 Darlene Pavlick
What I like most about this card is the thought process behind it and the wonderful design that transpired is just WOW! The design, layout, and feel of this card goes great with our photo inspiration.





# 1 ATC & Wenskaarten
What I like most about this card is the fact it is not Halloween related.
Just a beautiful sombre card say 'I miss you'. Wonderfully done!



# 6 Sian

-I love her moon and the hand painted tree are just... well...Wow!! Goes great with our photo inspiration!! And look at the embossed background!! Perfect touch!

Sian


Hello everyone. I should probably introduce myself. My name's Sian Cheetham. I'm 42 and I have two boys. 
I work full time and spend lots of my free time crafting. I've been making cards (and dabbling in various
 other crafts) for about 12 years now, I was forced to take a long break whilst studying for a degree.
 It paid off though, as I graduated with first class honours at the end of July. Since finishing,
 I've returned to making cards and am making up for lost time! 
I am also in the process of resurrecting my abandoned blog. I'm really looking forward to joining
 the design team and getting to know everyone.

The winners for our new challenge will be announced
in two weeks time,  on November 7th  We hope to see you then.

lovely coloured panels the leaves are stamped on.


#92 Lou Sims
Amazing stamping, love the off the edge elements of the card.


# 96 Kajcyika
Very effective use of Kraft card and I love the snowy splatters.

A very sad farewell to Fliss
Please join us to bid a sad farewell to Fliss, who has been spinning
so many creative and personal plates of late, the time has come for her
to sadly step down from the Design Team.
Fliss has been with Make My Monday since it's beginning in 2011.
We have all greatly enjoyed her amazing creative skills over the years.
We send her every good wish, we will continue to see her skills in
 blogland. Fliss the door has not closed, it stays open for your return.
We will miss you and say, thank you for so much. Good luck.

Now it is time to introduce our new challenge,
Fliss will be choosing the winners.
