Merry Monday Challenge Week #92

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend.
They always seem to fly by so quickly for me!

Today it's time for another challenge from over at Merry Mondays! We had some awesome snowman cards last week and it seems now since we have our own blog that the challenge is really picking up in entries! Thank you to all who play along each week. The reward will come at the end of the year and your not stressing over making Christmas cards! I love the stash I have so far! :)

Anyways, here we go with this week's challenge!!!



I kept my card very CAS style this week for easier mailing. I also love these colors for Christmas, not sure why but I do! In my stash I have found the ornament already stamped and cut out. I added a red rhinestone to the center of it to make it sparkle. I cut a piece of burlap ribbon and adhered it to my Very Vanilla cardstock. I then attached my ornament with a dimensional on top of my burlap. Stamped my sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink and added some scraps of Real Red Grosgrain that were in my stash. Then I adhered everything to my Chocolate Chip card base and finished the inside with my saying. Very easy peasy!

Stamps: Ornament Bundle, More Merry Messages

Also some awesome news from over at Merry Mondays.....we took on a few more Merry Makers this week! Please stop by the blog to check it out and welcome our newbies! I also hope you can play along with us this week!

Well, that is all for me!
