Merry Monday #295 - An Inspiration Challenge

Hey Merry Monday fans...I'm happy to be hosting the challenge this week and I have a simple but lovely inspiration photo for you.


This may be a simple photo, but there really is a LOT to be inspired by!  The woodgrain, the peppermint candies, the colors, the mason jars, the candle light, and the greenery...include a few or a lot of them onto your cards!

 I was inspired by the colors, the greenery, the mason jars, and the candies!  I love the paper in SU!'s Candy Cane Lane pack and 2 of the papers worked perfect for this challenge!  I just embossed in white the outline of the Pint and Quart size jars from PTI right onto the papers and my jars were filled with Christmas goodies!

I stamped a little bit of greenery behind the jars using PTI's Holiday Greens stamp set, and then added a frame in Real Red cardstock using Penny Blacks Snowflake Stitch Frames dies.  A few red and green sequins, some red & white bakers twine, and a Tiny Tag with my sentiment and some jute twine finished off my FUN and FESTIVE card.

We can't wait to see what YOU come up with this week using the inspiration photo.  Check out what the DT came up with and then play along...you will be so happy when December rolls around and you have a stash of Christmas cards already done!  You can find all the info you need to play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
