Merry Monday #33 {Season's Greetings}

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 Guest Designer for a future challenge!  So get out your Christmas supplies and let's get to work! I inked up my Star Tree Stamp in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and stamped it onto some Crumb Cake Paper...I wanted to create something neutral and hopefully, classy!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Four the Holidays, Star Tree
Papers: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip
Inks: Chocolate Chip Craft Ink
Tools: Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Chocolate Chip Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, 
Rectangle Nesties, Big Shot, 1/4" Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Heat Gun

I was off last week! No commenting or card making for me. Life threw me a curve ball and so I had to take the week to sort things out! Here is the post all about that Curve Ball!! I have decided to step down from my other design teams but to keep Merry Monday going, at least until December! I am just not finding the time to stamp like I used to be able to do! But enough about me, you are here to get some Christmas Inspiration!!! The design team has created some gorgeous samples for you!! A big welcome to Melissa Davies this week, as our Guest Designer!
