Merry Monday Challenge

Yikes - I'm back for a second post today!  Usually I'm the one who goes weeks without posting - oh well...

Anyway, I found my way to the Merry Monday Challenge Blog.  Here they celebrate making Christmas cards every week - love that!!  In earlier posts I've mentioned my plan to make at least 4 Christmas cards a month this year so I think the Merry Monday challenge will help with that goal.  Here's the card I make for the current challenge to use a house on your card:

Snowy House

For my house, I used a stamp and cut set called Snowy Houses that Hero Arts made for Archiver's, back when the physical stores still existed.  I colored it with Copic Markers, added some Stickles, Glossy Accents (on windows) and Liquid Applique (for the snow).  The Stitched Hillside Borders are by Lawn Fawn - just love, love, love these.  The gingerbread man is another HA/Archiver's stamp & cut - Cookies Set  The falling snow was made with the Tiny Ink Spots background by Hero Arts, inked with Picket Fence Distress Paint for a bit of texture.  

OK - that's probably the last time for a while that you'll see two posts from me in one day.  Happy crafting and if you fancy getting on track with your Christmas cards, check out Merry Monday!!
