Hi Everyone. Happy Monday.
I was thrilled to be invited by Lesley to be the Featured Designer across at Merry Monday for September. Lesley was the first person to invite me to be on a design team and I have so enjoyed my time at the Paper Players, so I was thrilled when she invited me to play along with Merry Monday. Thank you Lesley. It's my honor to be a member of the team for the next month!
Here's this week's challenge:
How perfect is a present on a Christmas card? I love it!
I needed to search in my stamp sets and found a set that came as part of a UK card making magazine. It contained this fabulous gift image, as well as a little red breasted robin... which, will be used on another ard later in the season!
Here's my card for the challenge:
I stamped this image with Memento Black ink and then had great fun coloring it with Copic Markers. Once I had finished coloring it, I fussy cut around it and mounted it on to a piece of fabulous All is Calm speciality paper from Stampin; Up!
I mounted the focal image onto a tag and then mounted it with Stampin' Dimensionals on to the DSP. I finished the tag off with a little bit of ribbon from my dear friend Pammie and a basic pearl.
The design team have created some amazing cards for your inspiration. I hope you join us this week. We can't wait to see what you create from this challenge!
On a personal note:
Lou and I managed to kick back for a while today and even spend some time enjoing the view from our screened in porch. Well, Lou did... I spent a lot of my time in my craft room, which, I can promise you, wasn't exactly a hard ship :-)
During my time in my craft room, I spent quite a bit of time finishing up some engagement party decorations for a couple very dear to our hearts :-) Sadly, I won't be at the engagement party, so this is my small contribution to what I know will be a fabulous event. It's always wonderful to see young people in love; young people you know are meant for each other!
I did manage to make one card whilst I was in my craft room, and I will be sharing that with you later in the week.
I'll be back tomorrow with another Ornamental Pine card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonightl
