Merry Monday Challenge #3 {Let it Snow} and a new Guest Designer!

Welcome to another "Merry Monday"! As with anything new, things tend to change and grow. I was thinking this past week that it would be nice to highlight some designers who play along with me.  So this is what I was thinking!  

***Each week I will choose one winner from my challenge, then that person would be a Guest Designer for me two challenges later (if they wanted to).  Does that make sense?  My first challenge winner was Jaydee and so here she is, two weeks later, joining me as this week's Guest Designer!!!

Here is Jaydee's take on my sketch, she decided to create a wide card, instead of tall. I love that she interpreted the sketch and made it her own!  

And this is what I made using the sketch, I love using bright colours!  I used Melon Mambo, Pool Party and White as my main colours for this card.

This week's sketch maybe interpreted is a few different ways...feel free to change that Oval to any shape that you have in your stash!  I used a Nestability die and then layered some ovals.  I don't know about you, but having to make a Christmas card each week for my challenge is really helping me to stay on target for producing my cards in time for next December!  

I hope you get the chance to join me!  Remember the winner of my weekly challenges are invited to join me as a Guest Designer. I will also have Featured Designers from time to time.  This is all for fun!!  Let's get those Christmas cards made!
