Merry Monday #139 {Winter Wonderland!}

Welcome to another challenge at Merry Monday! This is the challenge all about Christmas cards and getting a head start on the Christmas season. This is our final challenge for 2014! The team will be taking some time off but we will be back with a brand new challenge on January 5th, 2015!

Happy Holidays!

Hi, this is Karren and I'd like to see your winter-themed Christmas cards.  Pretty easy, right?  Living in New Zealand, Christmas falls in the middle of summer, so the chances of snow on Christmas Day are zilch.  That doesn't stop me admiring winter Christmas cards, though and I'd love to see you fill the gallery with some wintry goodness :)

1. Each week there will be a brand new challenge posted on Monday at 5am (PST).

2. The challenge will be either a theme, an inspiration photo, a sketch or a colour combo.


3. Each participant is encouraged to comment on 3 cards in the Gallery. (Who doesn't love comments!)


4. Have fun!


5. Follow the weekly challenge closely.

Our winner this week chosen by Debbie...




Lai-Yoke from walshow Design



Thanks to everyone that played our color challenge this week. We appreciate that you are taking time from your busy schedule as the holiday's are almost upon us. Lai-Yoke's card really caught my eye this week. Love how she incorporated the gold sequins and the silver glimmer paper and added the blue sky for the fourth color. Such a pretty & stunning card. Congrats Lai-Yoke for being our winner this week!

Merry Monday #137 {Feathered Friends!}

Welcome to another challenge at Merry Monday! This is the challenge all about Christmas cards and getting a head start on the Christmas season. Lesley here! I am thrilled to be the "Featured Designer" this month at Merry Monday! It is nice to be back and crafting with my pals! 


Hi all!  Deanne here hosting our first challenge of December.  I chose a rather simple theme of using a "bird" on your Christmas card.  You can create a card using one or two (or more!) birds;  or keep it CAS or shabby vintage fussy.  Any kind of bird will do!!
