Merry Monday 45


Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I spent yesterday with my hostesses, eating, stamping and laughing!  It was terrific, and I promise to show you some goodies later in the week!

It’s time for another challenge from Lesley at Merry Monday, and she has a sketch for us today:

This card went together pretty quickly, as I had most of the elements sitting on my desk (ahem, from before Christmas!!!!) so when I saw the sketch, I knew I could finally put them to use:


It’s a bit difficult to see, but I stamped some fir trees on the plaid background, added the leaping deer and some paper ribbon; the only other stamping is the little Crafty Secrets Santa:


and if you remember these pictures from last week:


the little Santa was what was so intriguing to her!!!

I hope you’ll get a good head start on your holiday cards by playing along with us this week!  It’s a fun, easy sketch and we’d love to see your take on it.  Be sure to stop by Always Playing with Paper to see what the other girls made with it, too!  And remember….any questions?  Email me!
