Merry Monday Winners

Thank you to everyone who joined us for last week's sketch!!! The Merry Makers have chosen their favourites for this week. Be sure to grab your badge and display it proudly on your blog!

Wendy's Choice: Bonnie
Stamping with Klass
I loved Bonnie's card this week because she took this beautiful rose and turned it into a holiday card! Not a set you'd normally use for a Christmas card but she made this work beautifully!! I love the Scallop Trim Border Punch and the embossed pieces. She needed nothing else to make this pretty rose stand out on it's own! Nice job! Congratulations Bonnie for being my Top Pick this week! :)

LeAnne's Choice: Lisa
Snowy Moose Creations

I am a pushover for silhouettes, and this fun scene of Santa and his reindeer made me giggle with delight!  I love that the image is stamped in blue, and the background paper and embossed panels really add fun texture to an already-cool layout!  Love it!  Congrats, Lisa, on being my Top Pick this week!

Nina’s Choice: Danielle
D's Crafting Connection

So many fantastic cards this week, my eye was caught though with Danielle’s window card. The Christmas trees are so cute and coloured so nicely, I love the bright colors in the design paper with the little bit of sparkle. The two little sentiment tags are a great finish. Congrats on being my Top Pick this week, Danielle!

Colleen's Choice: Patti Corriere 
what are you inking?

Patti's Christmas tree is so clever, using a pennant punch as her base and adorning it with wavy 'garlands' of pearls. The color scheme of pale aqua and fresh green makes for a unique approach to a Christmas card. I also like the creative use of the Lattice Bigz die as the horizontal panel. Congrats on being my Top Pick of the week, Patti!

This week's winner is:


I just adored Madeline's sweet card! The funky fold, her white gel pen colouring and the colour combo all made this card a stand out for me! Congratulations Madeline!
