Merry Monday 112


Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope you had a good weekend….our weather was AWESOME and I had a great time stamping with some new friends on Saturday!  But I digress…it’s Monday and that means Merry Monday!  Karren has a sweet little challenge for us today:

I was fully prepared to stamp some Santa hats, but when I was looking through my plethora of Christmas paper, I found some with a plethora of Santas:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 112 Santa Stampin Christmas Card

I haven’t done a vintage card lately, so I quick-as-Santa’s-wink punched them out, mounted them on some Cherry Cobbler diecut squares and after I stamped some sleigh and reindeer images on this cute background DP, I popped them up with some dimensionals.  I finished it off with some baker’s twine and a sentiment at the bottom from Amy R Stamps.  I added a little sparkle to each Santa’s hat as well with a sequin:


to make it qualify for the Just Us Girls sketch challenge this week:

Oooh, this just makes me smile!  How about you?  What can you come up with for our “Santa Hat” challenge?  Share it with us over at the Merry Monday blog, and you might get chosen to be our Guest Designer or even our Featured Designer!!  Can’t wait to see what you create!
