Merry Monday 2

Thursday, January 12, 2012

My friend Lesley has recently started a new challenge aimed at getting us to make one Christmas card a week.  Every Monday, she provides us with a Merry Monday sketch for inspiration and our task as participants is to make a Christmas card.

I wanted to participate in this challenge for a couple of reasons.  First, I really believe that if I make one Christmas card per week it will really take the pressure off.  I always seem to be scrambling around in December because I haven't got enough cards made, so starting now will give me plenty of time to make what I need.  Second, I STILL have tons of Christmas designer paper left (despite my self-imposed challenge to use as much of it as I could this past holiday season), so participating in the challenge will force encourage me to use more of it!

So without further ado, I present my first Christmas card of 2012.  I used some of my Wintergreen dsp, the tree stamp from Perfect Presentation and a sentiment from Contempo Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
