Merry Monday Challenge

Even though it is still the first week of January I'm making Christmas cards! I came across the blog "Always Playing with Paper" that has a Christmas Card Challenge every Monday and I've decided to try and play along as often as I can. It's always good to get an early start on those Christmas Cards!!  Here's a link to the site:

Here is the card I made using this week's sketch challenge.

After I got going on this I remembered our dog chewed up my embossing buddy right before Christmas, so I have some extra gold embossing in some places. I may end up redoing this once I purchase another embossing buddy!  :-)

All stamps are DRS Designs - Ornament 844K, Merry Christmas 346B and Polka Dot background 688P. Everything is stamped in gold and then heat embossed in gold. I used a nestie ornament die and a Martha Stewart border punch. And now my first Christmas Card for 2012 is completed!  Yeah!

Until next time,


  1. Gorgeous! Love that gold embossing on that fantastic ornament!

  2. Lovely card! Thanks for stopping by my bog.

  3. This is so Christmasy! Love the gold and the sparkly cardstock you used. Hooray, one card done! So happy you joined me this week.

  4. I love this card. Gorgeous cardstock and that ornament die is fabulous.

  5. Oh how I love this card. The ornament and wording look so good. So tempted now to buy that Nestie and that wording! Love your colours too!!

  6. Very pretty card!! Embossing always looks so elegant. Isn't this a brilliant challenge?? No more stressin' come December, lol!
