Merry Monday 92


Hi peeps!  Another Merry Monday is upon us; here’s the challenge for this week:

I didn’t even realize until I made up my post, how close to the challenge photo my card actually was!  I knew I wanted to use this new Unity stamp, and I had some pretty cardinal stickers, so I pulled one out and put them all together on some MME Christmas paper:

I added a doily which I dabbed in my Very Vanilla ink pad, then a tiny sliver of red glimmer paper:


and added a little gingham ribbon above my “Wonder” sentiment:


Love it!  I hope you do too, and you’ll play along with us and the other designers at the Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge blog.  We just can’t wait to see what you create!

Story time.....
