Happy Monday and welcome to my new monthly challenge right here on my blog.
Some of you probably remember that I used to host a challenge earlier this year and then took a break. I am back with a challenge again, and since I had to change the day of the challenge, I couldn't keep the same name, so now I simply call it the
Monday Morning Challenge
As mentioned this is a monthly challenge, going live the last Monday of each month.
For the first challenge I picked out a very easy theme
***Anything Christmas or Winter***
Simply link your new creation with inlinkz below.
Just a few things to remember...
It must be a new creation
You must mention my challenge and link back here in your post
Combine with other challenges as you wish
And please note, due to high shipping costs overseas, prize winners will be chosen from USA entries only. I am very sorry about that, as I appreciate all my international blog visitors just the same, but sadly it would cost me almost $13.00 to ship the prize to Europe (in addition to the actual prize), and I find that too costly. Thank you for understanding!!
Now onto my projects for today. . . I made two cards. . .
Dashing thru the Snow
, Winter Song
both are by Penny Black and limited available in my Etsy shop.
Sentiment from clear Penny Black set Holly Jolly.
For the background I masked off the bottom portion of the large stamp ( Winter Song
), and added snow by tearing white card stock and adhered it to the bottom portion of the card. Inked the top part of the card with distress ink leaving off the white trees by simply covering them up with scratch paper. The image has been fussy cut after coloring with copic markers. I embellished with some glitter, silver cord and a punched out snowflake.
And here is my second creation using one of my favorite snowman stamps.
by Penny black and limited available in my Etsy shop
old SU sentiment
Designer paper is from my stash. Colored with copic markers. Embellished with glitter, twine and snowflakes.
This month's prize is a cute stamp sponsored by me / my shop
And this is the stamp that will go to one lucky winner.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Can't wait to see all your wonderful Winter/Christmas creations! You have until December 26th to enter. New challenge will start December 29th.
Edited to add 12/5
