Merry Monday Winners

Thank you to everyone who played along with us this past month at the Merry Monday Challenge! The design team have chosen their favourites, who are honorable mentions!

Wendy's Choice: Jen Brum
Ladybug Designs
WOW! What's not to like with this beauty?! Jen's Christmas card is very eye catching with that pretty color of blue and all the glitter paper! I love the sentiment in the middle of the medallion and the added rhinestones! Very festive and oh so pretty! Congratulations, Jen, on being my Top Pick this week!!

LeAnne's Choice:  Patti
What Are You Inking?

Patti's card just made me laugh as soon as I saw it!  That cute little penguin popping out from behind the "no peeking" banner captured my heart, and I just had to choose her card as my Top Pick this week!

Nina’s Choice: Hayley
Stampin' Up! with Hayley Kew
Hayley makes this card look so easy :) I love the paper, rich colours and double ribbon treatment that she used. This little glass of cheer is wonderful with it's tiny holly embellishment. Congratulations Hayley on being my Top Pick this week!!

Terry's Choice: 
Cat's Ink Corporated

I love how light and cheery this Christmas card feels with the embossed white and blue colors. Congratulations Susan on being my Top Pick this week!

Narelle's Choice: Bianca
I'm a huge lover of neutrals colours, so when I saw Bianca's gorgeous Christmas card I fell in love straight away.  I love how she's cleverly inked up only one of the trees from the row so it fits inside the scallop circle. The tulle is a perfect touch to finish off the card. Congratulations Bianca, on being my Top Pick this week! 

Bonnie's Choice: Kim S
Joyful Creations with Kim
Merry Wreath

I love all that embossed white space and the simply punched wreath and adorable ornament in the center! This is a card that I would love to CASE! Congratulations on being my Top Pick this week, Kim!

Lesley's Choice: Melissa

I just loved Melissa's GORGEOUS card! The elegance of the monochromatic colour theme and the pretty embossing, really caught my eye! I love the polka dot paper paired with the pretty ornament too. A wonderful Christmas card!! Congratulations Melissa! I hope you will consider joining us as a Guest Designer for Monday, September 17.
