Merry Monday 18

DSCF0093

It’s Monday---hope you had a great weekend!  It’s time for another Merry Monday sketch from Lesley at Always Playing with Paper!  Here’s the layout:

and here is my interpretation:

Merry Monday 18-LeAnne

I went a bit rustic and vintage with this sketch, using a wintry scene from Inkadinkado, stamped in Island Indigo and glittered with a liberal sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds!  It was diecut using the Labels Framelits and overstamped with the Linen (retired) background stamp, as was the oval, stamped with an Artistic Outpost sentiment.  The vertical panel was stamped with Woodgrain and everything was sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  That little ruffly ribbon adds just a bit of fanciness!  I really enjoyed making this!  I hope you will take this opportunity to get some Christmas cards made ahead of time, and play with us!  You can see what all the other designers made by checking out Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper!

This card has got to be one of my most favorite Christmas cards! I guess the little cabin grabbed my attention along with those pretty papers & ribbon! Nice job on this week's sketch, LeAnne....I love it!:)

Love the plaid and wood grain! Great winter feel for sure LeAnne!! Have a wonderful day!

I love this card and it's somewhat "non-traditional" Christmas colors and vintage feel. I think it's great when Christmas cards aren't the traditional red and green. Great job.

Great card, but Cassidy looks so sad.

Such a thoughtful look Cassidy - what are you thinking??
I love today's Christmas card. That wintery cabin is so homey looking. I like how you did this card a bit rustic - totally fits with the image. I keep thinking I have to jump in with these challenges one of these days and this is a great sketch to start with. I'll see what happens with my day tomorrow......who knows .....this could be the week - yippee.

Ok, I'm ready to go hibernate in a cabin in the snowy mountains after seeing this one! Love that image and the woodgrain background is the perfect touch. :)

I like this masculine look on a Christmas card. The blue and brown are beautiful together.
