Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Merry Monday



Hi Friends,

It’s  a Merry Monday indeed!

I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer this week over at Merry Monday!

A huge THANKS to Lesley and Bonnie for this opportunity!

Look at this Great Inpspiration photo that we had to work with this week!

The requirement is to use a stocking and or stockings on your card.

My card was inspired by the colors, the stripes on the stockings,

and the holly berries that are peeking out of one of them.

The sentiment is from VERVE …the Holly Jolly Christmas set.

The stocking is a pattern that I have had that I shrunk down just a tad

and cut out with scissors.

The holly leaves are a die cut from my school. (Shhhhhh)

The berries are a hole punch.

The EF is called Square Lattice from SU.

Lots of distressing and some hemp and that about does it.

Please won’t you come on over to Merry Monday and

Join the talent team and I this week?

We would love it if you would!!!

Find time to be creative it’s good for the soul,
