Merry Monday Challenge Week #41

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Saturday, we had lunch out with my Mom & Dad and I ended up with a migraine which resulted in going to bed about 8:30 on a Saturday night! Sunday was an absolutely gorgeous day here in PA! Temps almost hitting 70 degrees! I felt better once I got up. Sat and watched Shawn's Baltimore Ravens win football that afternoon then it was time to deliver craft show stuff. I told Pam, I work on this all year long and stress up to the last minute of walking out the door with my stuff. The weight has been lifted!!
I do still have a few things to finish up that I will deliver next Sunday but that's trival things. I'm very pleased with my creations this year and hope for a wonderful turnout!

So, it's Monday and that can only mean it's time for another sketch from Lesley from over at Playing With Paper!!  Let me tell you how wonderful it was handing over my entire basket of Christmas cards to Pam for the craft show from cards I made from the Merry Monday Challenge! I have quite a collection and just love this challenge! The next couple of challenges for the remainder of the year I will use for myself but knowing this year I will not have to stress about getting cards made is a wonderful feeling!

Here is Lesley's sketch and my sample....




I love this card in real life! With the Red Glimmer Paper it was so hard to get a good picture of this card. I love the little red Santa hats with the Ho Ho Ho! sentiment!
