Merry Monday 49

DSCF2893

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you all weathered the weekend okay!  It’s time for another Merry Monday challenge!  Lesley has a sketch for us today:

A fun little sketch; I made a 4 1/4” square card for this one:

MM49-LeAnne

I don’t think I used this little silhouette image last Christmas, so I thought he would be perfect for the sketch as well as the Festive Friday challenge, which is an inspiration/color challenge of red, white and silver:

as well as the Jingle Belles challenge, which is “Ho Ho H2O”, or to use snow, sleet, ice, etc on your card!  I think my sledding boy fits that just fine:

I used some beautiful SU Silver glimmer paper, a glimmer brad,, some retired SU silver cord and a snowy embossing folder.  Of course, I added a little Dazzling Diamonds “snow” as well!  I hope you’ll be able to play along with us this week and get a good head-start on those Christmas cards for 2013!  You’ll be glad you did!  Be sure to scoot on over to Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, to see the wonderfully creative cards the DT made this week!

I don’t think I shared these photos….my friend Sandy gave Cassidy some washable markers for Christmas….they were a great hit!

I ordered and sent a box of art supplies off to Cora yesterday. It looks like it will be a big hit. Thanks for the help.
Your card is very pretty. That is a great image. I do love SU's glitter paper. It really sparkles and isn't a big mess.
Have a great week LeAnne!

Beautiful card, and great use of the red, white, and silver! I think I 'need' some of those Dazzling Diamonds! Cassidy is so intent on her design work, and I love that she's already creating her own color combos with those markers! Hugs...

I love this image, LeAnne! I don't know how you've resisted using it until now! A great card, my friend!

Bonnie said...

PS. Those washable markers don't "wash" off of furniture very well! LOL, ask me how I know and why there's an afghan on the arm of my couch!

Love how you used the silhouette stamp for your main image LeAnne, and in red it pops! The silver accents are festive and fun my friend. Great card as always.

I love the red, white, & silver color combination, and that glittered panel looks beautiful! I love Miss Cassidy's hair pulled up! So cute, and a budding artist too! :)
