Merry Monday #66

Good morning friends.  Last week I discovered a new Christmas challenge blog and I'm excited to play along again this week!  I am definitely going to have no worries come December as far as not having my Christmas cards done and I'm loving this idea!  I really like that this challenge also gives a layout to follow each week too.  Here's the layout for this week:


My design paper is what inspired my card this week, so take a look:

I realize my banners pretty much hide my design paper (Eskimo Kisses by BasicGrey), but the design paper is what prompted my color choices and the stamp set that I used.  I used PTI's "Winter Hills" (LOVE this set!!) and stamped the little scene for my center flag, and then randomly stamped the pine trees from the set on the 2 outer flags.  I used my Copics to color the scene and tree's, and then sponged a bit with SU!'s Cool Caribbean (retired) ink.  My sentiment is also from the "Winter Hills" set, and I added a sheer pink ribbon, iridescent snowflake, and a pink pearl to finish off the banner.  I love how this card turned out and hope you like it too! :0)

Hope you will take the time to check out all the great entries over on Lesley's blog (  There is a lot of great inspiration there between the design team and all the other bloggers playing along, so if you want a head start on your Christmas cards, make sure you check it out! 

Actually made a Father's Day card using PTI's Make it Monday challenge for this week that I'll be showing you tomorrow, so have a wonderful Thursday and Lord willing, I'll be back in the morning! :0)
