200th Merry Monday!


Happy Monday, everyone!  What a special day this is!  The Merry Monday challenge is celebrating its 200th challenge, and the talented Debbie Henderson asked me to help celebrate!  Merry Monday has a special place in my heart, as Lesley asked me to be on the DT at its inception!  Even though I am no longer on the team, I still love to participate as much as possible, building up my stash of Christmas cards throughout the year!  So I encourage you to do that too!  

For this special event, there are four challenges in which you can participate....pick one, two, three or all four!  Have fun!  I did choose three:  snowman, sketch and colors!


And here we go:


I used lots of fun polka-dotted papers from various sources in my stash, and the stitched snowman and tree are from W+9, called Stitched Holiday Icons.  Mr Snowman is sitting on some embossed snowy hills (Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders and SU's Perfect Polka Dots EF) and the stitched stars are from Simon Says Stamp's Bundle of Stitched Shapes:


I made a little banner and stamped a sentiment from Anna Wight's Winter Schminter, and added a panel of Pear Pizzazz, embossed with a Tim Holtz EF called Deer Knit set:


It was all mounted on a Cherry Cobbler card.  So much fun to make!  I hope you'll play along with us and share it with us over at the MM blog!  Can't WAIT to see what you create!

  12. BTW! I used to always stand my dolls on their heads to dress them. Might have done that to my girls at one time or another. :>)
