Merry Monday Challenge 198

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend!

Today over at Merry Monday we have a new challenge for you!
Bonnie is our hostess this week so let's get to it!

This was a bit of a challenge for me but after looking thru a few different stamp sets I found this sentiment and immediately decided to use it. I used a Papertreyink holly die and an embossing folder from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) that has holly leaves on. Just a simple card and one that will be flat for mailing.

Merry Monday Challenge 198 Card:

Stamps: Christmas Messages
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Whisper White
Accessories: The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) Holly Embossing Folder, PTI Holly Die, Gold Cord, Tombow Liquid Glue

Well, I wanted to let everyone know that this week is my last week as a designer for the Merry Monday Challenge. I have come to the decision to step down about a month ago due to some life changes. My hubby will be having surgery in a few weeks in which my time will be busy in caring for him plus I just feel it's time. I have enjoyed my time with this group of ladies over the last few years and value the friendships I have made with them. Lesley, thank you for this opportunity! I have enjoyed it very much! This isn't goodbye as i'm sure when time allows I will join in & play along because I will need Christmas cards too! So, I hope to see you around in blogland in the future!

That's all I have for today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

I was hoping you'd change your mind about stepping down, Wendy! I will sure miss you and your beautiful Christmas cards! Love this with the pretty embossed and cut holly and the beautiful twine treatment! Wishing you all the best and your hubby too. Big hugs.
