Snow Cling – MM 274

Our new Merry Monday challenge this week is very apt, given how the weather has been here in Helsinki recently. Nina is asking for snow on our Christmas cards. I decided to try out a technique I’ve not used before to create the background for my little snowy area. It was fun to do something … More Snow Cling – MM 274

Peace and Joy – MM 273

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s time for another Merry Monday challenge and this week we have a colour challenge for you. Marcia is hosting, and she is looking for Christmas cards featuring red and turquoise. I made a clean and simple scene card for my project.

Get Merry – MM 272

It’s time for another Merry Monday challenge! (If you’re looking for my Cupcake Inspirations post, please click here.) Leanne is our host this week, and she’s looking for a Christmas card with glasses. The inspiration image shows champagne glasses, but of course spectacles could be another interpretation of “glasses”, and some of the DT did … More Get Merry – MM 272

Poinsettia and Mistletoe (With Bonus Tag!) – MM 271

Happy New Year! Are you ready to think about Christmas? It’s less than a year away! Okay but seriously, at Merry Monday we like to get an early start on Christmas projects so that it’s not such a rush when December comes (at least that’s the theory!)

Think Snow – MM 270

With Christmas only a week away it’s time for the last Merry Monday challenge of the year. This time it’s a tic-tac-toe challenge – pick a line, and make a card based on those. I went with the top line, and used stamping, patterned paper and embossing on my card.

Penguins In The Snow – MM 269

Merry Christmas Hats – MM 268

It’s a new week which means it’s time for a new Merry Monday challenge! Christmas is rapidly approaching so it’s really time to knuckle down and finish up those cards. This week’s challenge is being hosted by Deanne who is asking for Santa hat’s on our cards. I decided to use the hats as the … More Merry Christmas Hats – MM 268

Ombre Baubles – MM 267

This week at Merry Monday Colleen has a fun challenge for us, inspired by a pretty inspiration image. She’s asking us to use green and blue on our products, along with white, silver or vellum. I took inspiration from the baubles in the image to create this card.

Father Christmas – MM 266

This week at Merry Monday Sue is challenging us to include a Santa on our cards. (Or Father Christmas, as I would call him!) I had a more involved idea that I wanted to do for this card, but since being ill I’ve fallen behind on things. I did get started on my other idea, … More Father Christmas – MM 266

Red and Kraft Christmas – MM 264

For this week’s Merry Monday challenge Marcia is challenging us to use kraft and red on our Christmas cards. As I’ve been really busy lately I decided to go for a simple design and let some fun red patterned paper take centre stage. (This is my second post for the day.
