Less is More - Week 20 - Monogram

This week's Less is More Challenge is - Monogram!!  I love monograms - The letter M is featured throughout our house - Our last name is Mathey but my boys say that I have all the M's for me (Michelle) - I won't argue it - I did have lots of monogrammed things even before I was married.  What's not to love about an "M"??  Did you notice that even my watermark features my monogram prominently?
Case in point - here's a cabinet in our kitchen.  While it is truly a hodgepodge of every tchotchke (yup - I spelled that word correctly without spellcheck - one of my many useless talents) that seems to cross my path it also features several M's.  There is at least one "m" in every room in our house.  My favorites are the hidden m's though - lots of those too.  Occasionally, my one brother sneaks from room to room turning all my m's into w's.  Cracks me up - 
Anyway, I can't let my love of the letter M go unmentioned in my monogram card.  If one "m" is good then lots of "m"'s are better (too true - ever hear of m&m's???)  I featured the a muse|studio Classic Alphabet Clear Stamp Set (on sale right now!!) embossed onto kraft cardstock with some Washi tape, Flax Paper Flower, Bermuda Button and a snippet of Sugar Organdy Ribbon.
