Merry Monday Challenge # 287



Hi friends!  Today I am your host for the Merry Monday Challenge.  I found this fun picture to inspire you when making your Christmas card!  There are lots of fun colors, festive houses and even snowflakes and hearts...surely there is something for you to draw upon when making your card!

I was inspired by the tiny town and the snow, but I made mine a night sky.


 I hope to see your card in the gallery friends! And while you are at the Merry Monday blog, check out the design teams inspiration for you!

Penny Black Die:  tiny town
Lawn Fawn: Snowy Backdrops and sentiment
Distress Oxide Ink for sky
embossing powder for snowfall & flakes
Lindy's magical Powders (compliments from Marcia Hill!)
 
Heart Hugs, friends!
