Merry Monday 52


Happy Monday, all!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  It is a bit chilly  here—not too hard to think about Christmas, as winter certainly is still here!  Today’s challenge from Lesley is a color challenge:

Poor River Rock….I always forget about him!  So I was glad Lesley challenged us with this combo!  Here we go:


I used a retired set, Perfect Presentation, for my card today, along with the jumbo wheel Jolly Jingles for my background.  I did a little dry embossing, a little punching and a little blinging on my card!!!  A sentiment from More Merry Messages along with some River Rock snowflakes was perfect for the inside:


I used sketch #17 from CAS(e) This Sketch as well:

Hope you can play along with us this week as well.  Be sure to check out the amazing creations the others have made with this holiday color palette.  You can find them all on Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper

I did find a couple of pictures of Cassidy from last month that I don’t think I shared with you:




Have a great day!

I think this is the only Christmas interpretation of this sketch - love it! The use of the various elements (I love that the long rectangle looks like a present!) is very clever! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

Love it! I could've see that this was the CTS sketch before I scrolled down to that part! I should take a leaf out of your book and make a start on my Christmas cards :)

Bonnie said...

I love what you've done with these colors and this sketch! You have picked up right where you left off!

Narelle Farrugia said...

This is perfect! What a fabulous layout - it works so well with your Christmas details (especially that tree!).

The details on each panel are beautiful!! I particularly love the one little red snowflake highlighting the "peace". Thanks for joining us at CAS(E) this Sketch!

Such cute pictures of Cassidy! Thank you for sharing them, they make me smile!!
Loved this week's Merry Monday card, LeAnne! It's terrific how you incorporated the colors with those little panels and that pretty tree image! I have that stamp set and haven't used it in ages. :( Love the touch of bling too!
Have a wonderful week!!:)

Shelley Germann said...

Hmmm...maybe I need to get in on this challenge. I love River Rock but never use it enough...just like you said, Poor River Rock." You Rocked the Rock, though! Great card!
