Merry Monday Week #35

Hello & Happy Monday!

Can you believe it's October 1st.....already!! Time is just flying by and pretty soon we can put all these wonderful Christmas cards to good use!

So, here we are at another Monday and that means it's time for another Merry Monday sketch. Lesley has given us another terrific sketch this week! Hope you can hop on over to her blog, Always Playing With Paper and check out all the samples that the Merry Makers have created this week, you won't be sorry!

Here is this week's sketch and my sample....

For this card I used an old Stampin Up set called Wandering Words. I already had the image stamped so I just layered that onto some Soft Suede cardstock. I cut my flags with some scraps of Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP from a few years ago. I layered all that on top of my white piece of cardstock that was embossed with a retired embossing folder called Snow Burst. It's probably my favorite! Then I layered that on to some Real Red cardstock that was attached to my Soft Suede card base. I added my SU Snowflake that was punched with some Champagne Glimmer Paper and added the button with some Linen Thread and called it finished! I love how easy this sketch is and the WOW factor that the Champagne Glimmer Paper gives! Hope you like!

I could KICK myself for not getting this set when it was available...I just love silhouettes and this is the cutest!

Wow, Wendy, I love the Soft Suede and Real Red combination! Like LeAnne, I wish I had got this set when it was available. Love that Glimmer snowflake too.

Fabulous card Wendy, you have created such a wonderful scene. I love your glittery snowflake with its button and twine.

I love how this image is flying across the sky, and the sentiment underneath is flying right along with it! Great papers and colors, and that snowflake looks amazing! Great card!

I LOVE this stamp set - those reindeer and Santa are fantastic. The glimmery snowflake just tops off this gorgeous card!

Carrie Gaskin said...

VERY nice. Love the stamp placement - it really fills up the white space perfectly. Great job!
