One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday # 107

Two weeks ago I was surprised with a Merry Monday win!
You can see the card HERE .  I was honored to be asked to be a guest designer this week.
We have a fun sketch for you to try!

And here is my card:
This is what I used for my card:
Paper: PTI paper white, spring rain, Lawn Fawn:  Peace Joy Love,
stamps:  Paper Smooches: Swanky Dudes, Winter Penguin
Dies:  PTI winter Penguin (snowflakes)
SSS: Falling snow Stencil
Wendi Vecchi white embossing paste
I hope you will be inspired by this wonderful group of ladies and give this sketch a try and make a Christmas card for your stash!
Have a great day!
Heart Hugs,
