Merry Monday 124


Happy Merry Monday, happy first of September, happy Labor Day!  How can it be the first of September already?!  Yikes!  Where did the summer go? At any rate, Deanne is our Merry Monday hostess today with a fun challenge:

I used the sketch from Match the Sketch this week:

to make my simple Christmas card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 124 Christmas

My papers are from the Authentique line, Two Christmases in One. I made a “present” from one of the papers, added a ribbon and Lil’Inker diecut bow, doing some additional stamping on the solid papers.


My sentiment is from My Favorite Thing’s Seasonal Sentiments; I also added some little hologram stickers for a little shine!


I hope you’ll play along with our wonderful challenge this week at the Merry Monday!  Be sure to check out the other designers’ creations as well!
