Merry Monday 90

DSCF2994

Happy Monday, peeps!  The Merry Monday challenge is back, and for the new year, Lesley has switched the Christmas card challenge to its very own separate blog!  You can see it HERE!  To start us off, we’re to use ribbon or twine on our card this week:

Since my plan this weekend was to have a hostess appreciation party, I chose to make a really simple card.  THAT plan was changed due to weather, but that’s okay…better for my stampers to be safe!  Here you go:

I actually used three different ribbons on my card today:  SU’s striped ribbon in Riding Hood Red, narrow ribbon in Real Red and some “Merry Christmas” from my stash:

I used a cute stamp & die from W+9 called Pretty Patches tree, stamping them in Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip and Real Red.  The card base is Natural Composition Specialty paper in the musical theme.  I hope you have some fun ribbons or twine you can dig out to make a card to start your Christmas stash this week!  Share it with us at the NEW Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge blog!

Grampy gave Cassidy a little train set he had gotten several years ago—it’s just a little cheapie set, but she loved lining them all up…she does that so well!

This card looks great with the DSP used as a background layer. I always had a hard time figuring out how to use that DSP and the little tree is adorable!
