Merry Monday Challenge #113

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
We had a wonderful week & a half vacationing with Vicki & Ed Burdick, our friends from Missouri! We went & seen so many fun things while they were visiting with us. I had the best time but boy am I exhausted and my back is really giving me the grief!

So now that things are calming down, i'm back with another fun challenge from over at Merry Monday! Let's get to it...

 This week our wonderful hostess is Kathy Schweinfurth and she gave a pretty color challenge!

I pulled out my Impression Obsession tree die that I love so much but it's really hard to get it out of the die. Luckily, this one did not give me too much trouble! LOL I love these colors for Christmas!
Hope you can stop by the blog to see what the other ladies have made for this week's challenge! You won't be sorry! :)

Glad to hear you and Vicki had such a great time. Your tree is so pretty and elegant! Love it! I find if I add wax paper between the die and the cardstock, it comes out easily!
