Merry Monday Challenge #136

Hello & Happy Monday!

Today, we have another terrific challenge for you from over at Merry Monday!
Bonnie is our hostess this week and she has given us a wonderful challenge to help us get those Christmas cards made! 

So here we go!


With these beautiful traditional colors that Bonnie chose,  I pulled out one of my favorite Whipper Snapper stamps called "Bundle Up, Mike"! He is so fun to color with my Copic Markers and I added some Sakura Gel Pen to his nose to make it look wet and added some glitter to the ball of his hat. My panels are cut out with the Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle Dies and I popped him up with dimensionals. Lastly, I added my loopy bow with a glue dot and called it done! :)

Merry Monday Challenge #135

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I know i've been very quiet here in blogland the last few weeks but you all know i've been preparing for 2 upcoming craft shows. Yesterday, I had delivery for my main show that i've been doing for many years. I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders once I handed over all my stuff to Pam. I can now breath and feel good about my accomplishment! I had everything finished up on Friday but had to get a copy of my inventory paper that I keep for myself. I use them to look back on to see what was a good seller and the quantity that I made. Now I can relax, breath and enjoy my family more! LOL My husband made mention that he hasn't seen very much of me since we came back from vacation! haha! Funny guy!

So, today we have a new challenge from over at Merry Monday! Sue is our hostess this week and she has a wonderful challenge to help get those Christmas cards made. Time's getting closer!






Sue is asking for Christmas Bells on our cards and since I have been extremely busy with preparing for these craft shows, I went for something so much easier....Christmas Bells on my DSP! This paper makes for a beautiful but quick card where I only added my sentiment and 2 small gold pearls. I'm so pleased with the finished product!


Merry Monday Challenge #135 Card:

Stamps: Bells & Boughs
Ink: Early Espresso
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Deck the Halls DSP
Accessories: Stamp A Ma Jig, 2 Small Gold Pearls, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you can stop by & visit the rest of the design teams creations! We have lots of wonderful bells for inspiration this week! Can't wait to see all those beautiful bells in the gallery this week!

Well, that's all for me today!
Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great day!

Merry Monday Challenge #134

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

I spent mine finishing up a bunch of stuff for my upcoming shows and getting my inventory lists in order. Phew, talk about exhausted! One more week until delivery so it's crunch time to get those last minute things ready!

Anyways, today we have a new challenge for you over at Merry Monday! I am the hostess this week and I have a fabulous challenge for you! We only have 6 1/2 weeks till Christmas so I hope this challenge will help you get a few more cards made!

Here we go!





I had another card idea in mind when I created this one but it did not turn out quite the way I had envisioned. So I pulled out my Ornaments Keepsakes Bundle along with some Pacific Point & Smoky Slate inks & cardstocks. I went with a funky layout. I used a retired Stampin Up set for the sentiment and added some bows & pearls to my ornaments. Hope you like!

Merry Monday Challenge #133

Hello & Happy Monday!

Here we are at the first Monday of November. 
The time is just flying by and before long it will be Christmastime! 

Today, we have a new challenge over at Merry Monday. Nina is our hostess and she is asking for rustic with creams, tans & browns.





I pulled out some old DSP from SU called Christmas Cocoa DSP and combined it with a new stamp set called Cheerful Tags. I've just got this stamp set last week and I have been using it left & right on my stuff for the Christmas shows! Love it!  I added a button to my cute tag and some banners at the top of my card that were embossed with the SU Snow Burst EF. I stamped a snowflake from the same stamp set, punched it out with a 1 1/4 circle punch and placed it at the top of my banners with a dimensional. I really like these colors together!


Merry Monday Challenge #133 Card:

Stamps: Cheerful Tags, Christmas Messages (inside)
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Christmas Cocoa DSP
Accessories: Note Tag Punch. Circle Punches, Banner Framelits, Button, Linen Thread, Glue Dot, Pearls, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

Hope you will stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what the other's have created this week! We also hope you'll play along!
