Merry Monday Challenge Week #40

Hello & Happy Monday!!

Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!

It's Monday once again and that means it's time for another sketch from Merry Monday!
Lesley from Always Playing With Paper gave us a super easy sketch this week so I hope you can find sometime to play along this week. You can also pop over to her blog to see what the other Merry Makers have created this week and you'll also see we've inducted another Maker to the Merry Maker design team! We love Sherry's work and i'm thrilled to be working with her for the next several months!! Congrats, Sherry!!

Ok, here is the sketch & my sample....

I'm not sure why but I really struggled with this one. I had a card completely done and ended up not liking it. I think I was just trying to rush to get it made. After being unhappy with my original card, I walked away and came back an hour later and made another card in 20 minutes. One that I LOVE! I think it's something with these colors & papers!

Merry Monday Week #40 Card:

Stamps: Sentiment from Word Play
Ink: Marina Mist
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Whisper White, Glitter Paper from Micheal's, DSP from The Paper Studio
Accessories: Labels 4 Nestibilities, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

Well, that is all for today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

I love this card too, Wendy! The glitter paper really complements the snowflake patterned paper! Love it also backing your sentiment! Great card!

I'm with you...anything blue is a GO in my book....especially with snowflakes! Love it!

This is a fabulous card Wendy, the colour combination is fantastic and I love all the layers under the sentiment.

Thanks for the welcome Wendy. I always love playing along with you girls and am so happy to be on the DT with you. Your card is lovely. Two of my favorite Christmas colors to use.

The blue with the snowflakes and the glitter paper that looks like glistening snow just go together perfectly! Beautiful!

Hello Wendy,

How I can totally relate - I think you're wise to walk away.

It turned out beautiful, simple yet so pretty. Thanks for showing us!
