Merry Monday Week #2 Challenge

Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

Hope your all having a great day so far!

The other day I was blog hopping and found a brand new challenge that was posted from a familiar blog, Always Playing With Paper. Lesley has a wonderful blog and when I seen she posted a new weekly challenge...I knew I had to participate! Her challenge is called Merry Monday's and that means each Monday she will supply a sketch challenge to make Christmas cards so that once Christmas rolls around, you have plenty made! I myself was thinking of trying to make a Christmas card once a week so this challenge was right up my alley!!

I did miss out on week #1 but I will try to make a card for it anyways!

Here is the sketch for Merry Monday Week #2 & my samples...

I'm pretty happy with this card!
I am really trying to use up old designer papers and scraps that I have lying around. This pack called Dasher is one of my favorite's from Stampin Up a few years back.
Hope you like it!

Hi Wendy,
Your card is classic Christmas tied with a perfect bow! I adore the clean lines and the beautiful stamping you have done. Thank you so much for joining me, I am so glad you liked the sketch.

Great Christmas card! I too am trying to use up my older dp and not buy any more until it's gone! (I hope I live long enough to do that!) LOL
I think this has to be my favorite Christmas tree image I own, and I love all the sparkle you added!

I love this card the simple style and color and the wonderful stamp of the tree. I think I may need to borrow that set from my sister soon for all these Christmas cards.
