Merry Monday 151:



Hi all!  Happy Monday to you!  It has been a whirlwind of a week.  Busy, busy, busy!  I didn't get to spend any time in the craftroom but we did, however, get buried in a lot of snow.  I suppose that is Spring for you - it's sneaky like that.  And really, where has March gone??  April is next week - crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This week at Merry Monday, Kathy has chosen the theme of using a TREE on your Christmas card:



I thought I would get crafty and bring out my watercolours, which is how I created my sky.  After it dried, I splattered it with more watercolours to make snow (and stars?).  I used my Spellbinders Classic Oval Nestie to frame it and added Reverse Confetti Branch Out Confetti Cuts.  I finished it all off with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Peace on Earth collection (stamped in Versafine Onyx Black).





As always, do not forget to check out the rest of my teamies' fantastic creations at Merry Monday and come play along too!!!

Have a fantastic Monday - cheers all!

What a pretty watercolor background, Deanne! And I'm still wondering what happened to February. March has run away with it, I think! Hope you have a crafty week!
