Merry Monday Challenge Week #29

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

It's Monday once again and Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper has given us another great sketch to help us get those Christmas cards made!

It felt like Fall around here this past weekend. I am looking forward to Fall coming for the cooler temps, leaves changing, firepit & smore's with friends, jeans & sweatshirts and more time to craft! I have alot of things to get accomplished before the Holiday Craft Show gets here and i've become such a procastinator when getting things done.

Here is the sketch and my card....

I stamped my snowman image from the retired SU Gift Tags set and cut it out with the Labels 2 Nestibilities then colored it with Copic Markers. I added 5 little Frosted Glass Rhinestones under the image for interest and an Amuse sentiment above. I used Frostwood Lodge DSP for my 2 panels layered on to Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The white panel was embossed with the Snow Burst EF. I added the 2 patterened paper layers, added my Marina Mist Grosgrain and attached it all to my Marina Mist card base. I love how simple this is!

Hey Wendy I love your little snow men. Thanks for your kind comment on my card but I just reposted a blurb on it as the bouquet is supposed to be mistletoe. Oh well the story of my life. Thanks again. Hugs, Bev
