Merry Monday's 200th Challenge!







Congrats to Merry Monday - celebrating its 200th challenge this week with some special guests and the choice of four options for your Christmas card. Such great options too - see them at right - and it took me no time at all to decide on the Snowman Theme for my first card. I'm betting I'll be back later in the week to try one of the other options.

Be sure to stop by and check out all the great inspiration - both the Design Team and their special Guest Designers posted some beautiful cards using a variety of the options.

Here's my card:

Frosty Wishes
Supplies: Stamps - Penny Black's Snow Family, Hero Arts' Frosty Wishes; Copic Markers; 
Cuttlebug Kitchen Towel embossing folder; May Arts ribbon; Hero Arts pine card, Bazzill and Neenah cardstock

I had fun with this cute Penny Black snowman trio that my friend Heather Maria sent me. She knows I like playing at Merry Monday so stamped off several panels of the trio. Besides the Snowman Theme, I decided to use the color option - red, green, kraft & white. The reds look a bit pink in the photo but I used various shades of Copic reds. Just love the Kitchen Towel texture from the embossing folder - just picked it up last week at JoAnn's.

Thanks for stopping and hope you have time to create a Christmas card with the Merry Monday team!!
