Merry Monday Challenge Week #72

Hello & Happy Monday!

Today is the start of something new over at Merry Mondays! Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper has given us new challenges to help us get those Christmas cards made. I love the new stuff & the challenges to come!

Here we go...

 I was inspired by the pretty packages in the picture so I used a Kraft Gift Box that I have on hand. Wish I would have had some beautiful red & white striped ribbon but no such luck. Along with my Kraft Gift Box I made a matching Gift Card to go with it.

I used some retired Holly Berry Bouquet DSP and matching felt holly. My sentiment on the box comes from the retired set, Christmas Punch. The sentiment on the Gift Card comes from the same set. My Gift Card has a piece of Stitched Real Red Grosgrain ribbon on it under the felt holly. I then added some red rhinestones and called them done. I'm quite happy with my gift set and have started making more!

Merry Monday Week #72 Card:

Stamps: Christmas Punch sentiments, Label from Halloween Bash
Ink: Real Red, Wild Wasabi
Cardstock: Crumb Cake/Kraft, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Holly Berry Bouquet DSP
Accessories: Felt Holly, Red Rhinestones, Modern Label Punch, Circle Punches, Scallop Oval Punch, Kraft Boxes, Real Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you can find some time to play along with us this week.
The team has lots of awesome inspiration over on the blog so hope you can stop by and check them out! We also have a new Merry Maker on the team, Loll Thompson! I've seen her work over at Splitcoaststampers and I have to say it is amazing!

Well, that is all for me today!
Headed out around noon to spend the day my family. Just hope the thunderstorms stay away! It's been so humid here....reminding me of the weather we had in Jamaica. I'm ready for fall/cooler weather!

Enjoy your day & Happy Labor Day, friends!

See you tomorrow!
