Merry Monday #26

I haven't played along with the Merry Monday challenge lately and really need to start doing this every week since Christmas will be here before you know it!


Once again, I used one of my very favorite stamp sets (To You and Yours from SU).  I used markers to color the image and then a glitter pen for the "snow".  You can't see that real well in the photo though.  The embossed background was done with the Snowflake embossing folder and I used Baja Breeze and White card stock on my card.  The frame was made with a couple of punches and then I added the Baja Breeze bow.  I'm STILL not satisfied with the sentiment size and placement - but such is life I guess and it's still going to make a good Christmas card for someone.


I'll enter this in the Merry Monday #26 Challenge (Sketch).

Thanks for stopping by..........I'm going to be away from the computer for several days but have a CUTE photo I'll post on Saturday - and then will stop by everyone's blog on Sunday!
