Merry Monday #100


Good morning all!  You know just a few week's ago I was speaking to my husband about making more Christmas cards.  I was determined to make one every week.  If this is your first time visiting my blog, then you may not know this, but I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!
   Then I got an email from Lesley at Merry Monday asking me to join the team, and the rest, as they say, is history :)


So not only is it my Merry Monday debut, but it is also the 100th challenge!!  How awesome is that??!?

For this week's challenge, you can either choose the sketch or colours or both!



I dusted off my Rodney stamp and gave him some life with my Prismacolors.  Rodney makes me giggle - I love the look he's giving those pesky lights!



I used one of my new favourite embellishments, sequins:


Card Ingredients:
Stamps: C.C. Designs Rodney Reindeer Lights, KaiserCraft Christmas Card rub-on sentiment
Inks:  Prismacolour pencils
Papers:  Recollections

Cardstock: Recollections
Bits/Bobs: Darice sequins, Glossy Accents, Gelly Roll white pen
Tools:  blending stumps and mineral spirit


Thanks for visiting.  Cheers!

Rodney is a cutie. Those lights definitely have him perplexed. Fun card! I'm enjoying the Merry Monday challenges, but shhh.... I'm not really that fond of Christmas. Love cards though.

Deanne, congrats on being named to the Merry Monday design team! I adore Rodney (I feel his pain, I usually get the job of unraveling the lights for the tree). Too cute...and amazing coloring!
