Merry Monday





Hi everybody!

This week I am a guest designer at Merry Monday!

 I'm so happy to be playing along this week with such a great team of designers. AND Merry Monday is one of my favorite challenge blogs! I LOVE the photo's they use for inspiration, some are so stunning.

The challenge this week was from Nina...use ski, skates, or a sled on your card.





That sounded like fun, so I paged through my binder looking for stamps that I could use.  I decided to try out this little penguin wearing skates from Clear Stamps, "Winter Wonderland." He sure looks like he is having fun! I colored him with copics and added some glitter to his skates.

The tree's a die I borrowed from a friend called, Christmas Tree Stacker from Dee's A Cut Above. The stitched circles and rectangles are from Lil inker. I also used a poinsettia die, borrowed again from a friend. I added a few sequins and a red foil center to the white poinsettia. You can see the red center best in the photo below, shiny things are so hard to get a good pic of!



The sentiment is stamped in black from Heidi Grace," Believe."

This was a fun challenge, and I really enjoyed playing along this week. Be sure to check out all the  awesome cards over at Merry Monday!
