Merry Monday 143:


Good Monday morning to you all!

This week at Merry Monday, Lori has chosen the theme of using CAROLERS (or music theme) on your card.


I knew right away which stamp I would be using (as I only have one caroling stamp - easy decision, right?).  I dug out this cutie pie from C.C. Designs.  I was blessed to be on the design team until the challenge closed a few years back.

I have so many cutie tootie stamps from C.C. Designs and was thrilled to re-ink Caroling Emma (which has been discontinued) in Onyx Black VersaFine.  I paper pieced her outfit in Doodlebug Santa Express and coloured her with with Prismacolor Premier pencils and blended with Speedball Mona Lisa Odorless Paint Thinner (100% mineral spirits).  I then finished it all off with a My Favorite Things Cheerful Christmas sentiment.
