Merry Monday 45

DSCF1948

Happy Monday, peeps!  Christmas is over, but I still have lots of stamps I haven’t inked up yet!!!  Thank goodness for Merry Monday—I can keep making Christmas cards all year long!  2013 is bringing a couple changes at Merry Monday…..in addition to sketches, we’ll be throwing in some color challenges as well!  Check out today’s challenge:

And here we go:

MM44-LeAnne-002

I pulled out my Jolly Bingo Bits for this card, as well as a retired set called Perfect Presentation for the little tag!  But this card has some other fun NEW stuff on it too!!

Can you see the embossed wavy lines on the card base?  They were made with SU’s Borders Scoring Plate….what a cool tool that is!  And see those little silver stars…..they’re from that Itty Bitties set (again!).  The light cord was drawn freehand using the Silver Stampin’ Dazzle marker, which is still available to purchase!!!  It’s all put together using the sketch 23  from Paper Craft Crew :

So don’t put your Christmas supplies away yet!  Play along with us at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, and get an early start on your holiday stash.  I used every single Christmas card I made last year…..and I make a LOT of cards, so you can never have too many!  Be sure to check out what the other designers created as well!

I was working ahead on next week’s MM card and stepped away from my desk for just a second…..and guess who jumped in my chair?

  2. Super cute card, LeAnne! Love the new Border's Score Plate! It was one of the first thing's that caught my eye when browsing the mini! Love how you coordinated that with your strings of lights! These colors are festive & fun and everything here looks awesome, even your adorable little tag! What a way to start off the New Year! :)

  7. How do you like the new score board? I have trouble keeping the stylus in the straight track and wondered how this would work. I love your pretty string of lights and the label. Isn't that stamp appropriate for this challenge! I see Cassidy is an artist in bloom!
