Merry Monday 269:





Happy Monday!  Christmas is now on the horizon.  I have all my gifts purchased and started wrapping this weekend.  I still feel like I have lots to do, but am one step closer to the finish line =)


This week at Merry Monday, Debbie would like us to use three of the colours in the inspiration photo:






The colour combinations are endless!  I went with the lime green, navy, and hot pink.  Anything non-traditional are my favourite colours to use =) 




The diamonds were not placed exactly where I was first thinking, but I accidentally dropped the green diamond full of glue.  So there is was, no going back!  Haha - perfect!!!  Speaking of these diamonds, is it just me or do I use my stash for the first time only to find out it's retired?  This happens more then I would like to admit!

December RC Blog Hop:


Good morning all - it's the eighth of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti's DECEMBER blog hop!  







It's hard to believe that in just a few short weeks Christmas will be here.

It is my most favourite time of the year.

For my card today, I created a fun card that brings together winter and how cool my friends are =)

I started with doing a simple mask of the snow friends in Midnight Ink.  I kept the buddies really simple with no colour but added some fun little paper pieced hats.




I added lots of layers.  LOTS!  Layers make me happy =)




Lastly I added a bit of Charcoal twine.

Merry Monday 268:





Happy Monday!  We are one week closer to Christmas!!  Only THREE more weeks - sqqqqquuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!



This week at Merry Monday, I would like you to put a SANTA HAT on your Christmas card:





Now it doesn't need to be Santa himself, the hat is fine.  I honestly don't much care for Santa, but this little pup dressed up as Santa totally made my day!  I am a dog person, not a Santa person LOL.

I also learnt in England they call Santa Father Christmas and he wears green instead of red.  So that is what inspired my card today!



I basically kept this card pretty simple and the idea came to me pretty quickly (which is usually the opposite), so all in all it was a breeze to create =)

The Paper Players 373:





Good Sunday morning to you!  Has anyone else wondered where the year has went.  I can't believe we are into December already!  


This week at The Paper Players, Laurie's THEME challenge is CHRISTMAS BAKING:



Fact: my least favourite room in the house is the kitchen.  I dislike cooking.  A lot.  But I do roll up the sleeves once a year to do some Christmas baking.  Because I love Christmas.  Every year I make Skor (toffee) shortbread, macadamia nut and white chocolate cookies, and bite size pecan tarts.  It's nothing elaborate but it's the only time I am proud of my kitchen skills =)




One of my new favourite sets is a kitchen/baking stamp set (go figure!) from Reverse Confetti.  I love the small little kitchen tools that can easily be placed on a card just about any where!






Stamps:  Reverse Confetti Kitchen LoveReverse Confetti Sweet Holiday
Die cuts:  Reverse Confetti Kitchen Love, My Favorite Things Blueprints 2
Extras:  Reverse Confetti Midnight Ink, Carta Bella Have A Merry Christmas pattern paper




I also created this card for the following challenge:
