TS Bue and Yellow Monday

I had a teacher when I was in junior high school who had a nickname for all the days of the work week. His name for Monday was Blue Monday. Well....that almost fits for the challenge this week over at Totally Stampalicious. The TS Monday challenge for this week is to make a card that is Blue or Yellow...any shade is fine. Here is what I came up with...
Here's what I used...The teddy bears are from the TS set Willameana. I love this cute bear image...perfect for so many occasions. This one will be a baby card. The card stock used is Ballet Blue, Baja Breeze, and GP white. The striped paper is by Reminisce and the bears were stamped on a coordinating piece of the papers that had great big polka dots with summery words and can't really see the designs in the photo, but I chose circles that had more general images and then punched them with a scallop circle punch. All three were mounted on a scrap of the thin backing that dsp sometimes comes on and the center one is popped up. The white was run through the Cuttlebug with the quilted embossing folder and then lightly sponged with Ballet Blue ink. The ribbon is some I picked up at the Dollar Tree on a girls' trip several years ago. The yellow flowers layers are from a plastic sheet by KI memories. I used a circle punch to get individual flowers from the sheet and placed them randomly on the card front. I used a clear gel adhesive and you can't see the glue at all. Can you believe it??? It's not even a masculine card and not a trace of bling or glitter anywhere!!
I hope your Monday isn't too blue! Today is the first of the last three early release days for students here. They will take two final exams each of the three days. Then one more work day!! Oh....I did sign up for a week-long training that will take up the entire following week, but it will be a regular schedule day, which is much shorter than I usually end up at work. Have a great week!!
