Merry Monday Challenge #5 and Blog Candy

Monday is here and so is the end of January! Five sketches down and five cards made for next Christmas!! This week I am pleased to have Wendy Aungst as my Guest Designer and I am also offering blog candy!!  The sketch this week is REALLY simple...feel free to use a smaller circle or a square. Change the sentiment spot and make it your own!  Please just make sure the sketch is still visible. Thanks!

Here is Wendy's amazing card!  I love those felt holly and berries! Such a sweet card Wendy!!  You can visit Wendy's blog by clicking HERE.

I also went with traditional colours for my card and this is what I came up with!  I inked up a Pink Cat Stamp and then used a sentiment from Stampendous. I just love that sentiment!  I used Garden Green DSP from my stash and paired it with Whisper White and Poppy Parade.  The elf is coloured with Copics and the circle is created from my Lacy Circle Nestability dies. I also got some gingham ribbon out and added that across my card!

Here is the Candy up for is just a little something...for a chance to win the candy, please play along!  I will choose one random winner from all the participants of this week's challenge! What's Included: 3 sticker packs, some scraps of Designer paper (roughly 4" x 5"), some felt flowers.
