Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #47 {Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas}

Welcome to my weekly Christmas card Challenge called "Merry Monday"! Each week, I post a challenge to inspire you to create a Christmas card for your Christmas card stash! I have a design team of 10 lovely ladies and we are all working on getting a Christmas card done each week! This is our last challenge with the talented and inspiring Deanna Dean who has been a wonderful Featured Designer for January! I am a huge fan of Deanna's work, she always inspires! Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards with us Deanna!!

Our challenge this week is a TIC TAC TOE Challenge, where you get to choose any three squares in a row-up/down/diagonally! I chose the bottom row of Designer Paper, Red & Green and Ribbon. This week I had fun inking up another Christmas goody that I purchased for myself while on holiday! It is a Christmas set from My Favorite Things. I admired it this Fall and was so thrilled when I found it! I also used the sweet sketch from the Feeling Sketchy Challenge and the Winter Spirit Challenge at the Ribbon Carousel.

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: My Favorite Things
Inks: Garden Green and Real Red
Papers: SU! DSP in Gumball Green, Real Red, Whisper White and Crumb Cake
Extras: May Arts Ribbon, Maya Road Chipboard Snowflakes, Pearls

    Not sure if mine really qualifies... it is a Christmas thank you not a 'real' Christmas card, so delete it if you need. (entry #25)
