Merry Monday 238:


Happy Monday all!  Well winter is back!  It hasn't stopped storming for over 24 hours.  We have gotten a lot of snow.  A lot.  On a positive note, the days are getting much longer.  The skies are starting to brighten on the way to work now and it's not pitch black out - yeah!!

This week at Merry Monday, Sue would like us to create a Christmas card with a DECORATED LAMP POST and added BLING:






I had the perfect set of lamp posts that I have never used.  It feels so satisfying to use never before used stash!  Thank you Sue for this great challenge!

I also have really, really been enjoying making my own backgrounds.  For this card I blended three different blue inks and added snowflakes in coordinating colours.  I then grabbed my old trusty white gel pen for a few dots of snow.


Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings Holiday, My Favorite Things Hand Lettered Holiday
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Streetlights, My Favorite Things Stitched Snow Drifts

Frosting:  Stampin' Up! inks, Stampin' Up! cardstockTsukineko Versafine Onyx Black



You know the drill...
