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: Alicia
Paper Art Princess 
Alicia's card jumped off the page at me with the beautiful color combo & that adorable ornament! I loved all the embossing and the rhinestones she added! Congrats, Alicia, for being my Top Pick this week!

LeAnne's Choice: Carol Parcell
C.J. Stamps

Wow was all I could say when I saw this dusky beauty by Carol!  The sponged background was beautiful, and the embossing gave it an elegant touch.  I could just feel the mystery and intrigue of that holy trip the Three Wise Men made to Bethlehem.  The bow and star stand out in such purity!  Congrats, Carol, for being my Top Pick this week!

Nina’s Choice: Janet Kay
Simply Made Cards

Lots of fantastic creations this week, I love the clean card that Janet Kay created. The image that is used is so beautiful and the snowflakes are a perfect addition. Congratulations Janet Kay, you are my Top Pick this week!

Vicki's Choice: 
Danielle Vincent

I loved all three of Danielle's cards this week, but this was by far my favorite. I loved the colors and that DSP is wonderful but the row of packages with cute little bows and the "Keep Calm and Shop On" sentiment put it over the top for me! Congratulations Danielle for being my Top Pick this week!

Narelle's Choice: Debbie Henderson
Debbie's Designs Blog
I love the colours that Debbie has used on her card - they sing Christmas to me. The blinged out baubles are just perfect and finished off nicely with touches of red. Congratulations Debbie on being my Top Pick this week!

Bonnie's Choice:
Allisa of Rocky Mountain Paper Crafts
I love how Allisa flipped this sketch! And the beautiful sleigh with the sparkly runners and beautiful monochromatic color scheme made this card stand out for me.  Congratulations Allisa, you are my Top Pick this week.

This week's winner is:

I just loved Carol's creative take on the sketch this week! That snowman is adorable with the chocolate brown scarf that matches the ribbon!
