Merry Monday Challenge 181

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
It got really cold here yesterday! It almost feels like winter which by the way i'm SO not ready for!

Today over at Merry Monday, we have a new challenge for you to help get those Christmas cards made! Lesley is our hostess this let's get to it!

This stamp, Dove of Peace was my first Christmas set from the Holiday Mini Catalog this year. I just love this bird and the sentiment and had to have it! Surprisingly, this is the first time I inked it up! It stamps beautifully, too!

I went with Island Indigo for my blue color. Unfortunately, I am out of Night of Navy cardstock and I bet it would be beautiful stamped in that color! I used the Falling Snow Embossing Folder for texture. After I had my first card made I ended up making a set of 5 for my show! So pretty!

Loved the challenge this week, Lesley!

I hope you will stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what the other ladies have created this week! Such beauties! I also hope you will play along with us. I can't wait to see all the blue & white in the gallery!

Merry Monday Challenge #181 Card:

Stamps: Dove of Peace
Ink: Island Indigo
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White
Accessories: Falling Snow Embossing Folder, Rhinestones, 2 Sided Tape

Well, that's all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Checking in to see the goodies for the Craft Show! Very pretty card... I agree would be pretty in Night of Navy or Real Red too! Reading through your other posts, I was sorry to hear about Deb's brother. Seems like we were just talking about him. Time flies by too fast.

Hi Wendy

Such a meaningful card, with a gorgeous graphic - I can see why you HAD to have this stamp. I'm sure each person who receives one of your cards will truly treasure it.

Pretty blue bird for Christmas, Wendy. I like that it is large enough to really fill the space on your card.
