Merry Monday #131


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Lori challenges us to use Non-traditional colors.


I was inspired by this card and wanted to use the Holiday Frames die by Simon Says.  The star is from Bright and Beautiful by Stampin' Up!  I love the colors blue and orange together so decided they were perfect for this challenge using non-traditional colors.

Christmas will be here before you know it.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Pink Christmas


Hi everyone!  I am back again today with yet another Christmas card.  When I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I purchased the connected circles die from Lil' Inker a while ago but, sadly it has been very neglected.  It works perfectly for this sketch.  My first thought was to use flowers in the circles.  I was searching my stamps and found this snowflake from the Four Seasons stamp set by SU and it was perfect.

I also searched around for a color combo and found on Amy's blog that Jingle Belles is hosting a Pink Christmas card challenge in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month.   I knew I had to play along.  For every card that is linked up $2 is being donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation!  I love pink and silver together on a Christmas card.



**Editing to Add this over at Virginia View's Challenge.**

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Four Seasons (SU), Keep it Simple: Christmas (PTI)
Ink:  Regal Rose, Silver (Hero Arts), Versamark

Merry Monday #130


Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week LeAnne challenges us to be inspired by "Silent Night".


I was inspired to try to recreate the scene in the photo.  I used my dies from Papertrey Ink.  I love these little houses and the church up on the hillside.  The sentiment is an older one from Papertrey Ink called Silent Night.  

  Christmas will be here before you know it.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Merry Monday #129


Happy Monday everyone!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week I am the challenge hostess.  I challenge you to use neon colors on your Christmas card. Use a little or a lot, it is up to you.  Use neon inks and/or papers.  I can't wait to see all the neon Christmas in the gallery!  Have fun!


I decided to just use neon paper on my card.  I have all the Neon ink pad colors from Imagine crafts but didn't feel led to use them for this challenge.  I used the Pine Trio background & outline dies from Memory box using the inlaid die cutting technique.  The sentiment is from Ornament Banner Builder by My Favorite Things.

I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

I am adding this over at Virginia's View Challenge.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
