Merry Monday Challenge #8

Welcome to another week at Merry Monday!  The idea behind this challenge is to get a head start on your Christmas cards!  Each week, I choose one Merry Monday Winner who will then be a future Guest Designer for the challenge!  So get out your Christmas supplies and let's get to work!

This week's sketch is another simple sketch that you are welcome to 
jazz up or to keep clean. Have fun with it...flip it, change the oval shape, or 
move the sentiment anywhere on your long as the main sketch is still visible.

My Featured Designer for February is Torico. She has created a very pretty card and her background was created with a stamp! Be sure to visit her blog for the information on how she created it.
