Merry Monday Featured Guest Designer & Challenge #52



I was so excited when the sweet and talented Lesley Croghan contacted me and asked me if I would like to be the Featured Designer at Merry Monday for the month of March!  Merry Monday is a weekly card challenge to make, you guessed it, Christmas cards all year long.  A fantastic idea because every single year I get caught at the last minute racing to get my cards done on top of everything else.  I am also submitting this to Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes

This week is a colour challenge. Are they not the perfect colours for a Christmas card?




Any chance I have to take out Love Lives Here is a happy day, here is my card.



I hope you will come and visit Merry Monday this week and play along.

All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  Vintage Cream, Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, Fine Linen
Stamps: Love Lives Here, Love Lives Here Holidays
Ink:  Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, True Black
Impression Plate: Simple Stripes
