Merry Monday #88 and Fusion #1


IMG_3333


Playing along with this week's Merry Monday which is to create a card with an animal of some kind and the brand new and improved Fusion Card Challenge.  The perfect opportunity to break out my brand new Christmas Folk Art Additions stamps set and dies which were a lovely birthday gift! I hope that you are enjoying your week and the anticipation of the holidays. It is the last day of classes for my daughter today and my son writes his last exam on Saturday and is coming home on Monday.

It is always such a treat to stop by your blog Tracey! Your cards are always so clean and perfectly fabulous! Such inspiration! I wanted this stamp set and dies, but I shopped late and they were sold out. It's on my wish list :) Your card is absolutely stunning! Love the red on the white. Such nice contrast! Hope you and your family have a most wonderful Christmas! (Hugs))
