Four Seasons for Merry Monday


I've watched Bonnie make some lovely cards over the past year with Merry Monday and whilst I was struggling to keep up with the cards I required, I vowed to join in this year.  So here I am with a card for the first challenge of the year following the colours Island Indigo, Real Red, and Pool Party. 

I stamped my image from the Hostess set Four Seasons, in Island Indigo and then again in Real Red and punched out using circle punches.  I cut a background in Pool Party using the Labels Collection Framelit and embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.  I attach the ring of snowflakes with Dimensionals with the robin circle in recess.  Then added some Basic Rhinestones to the snowflakes.  On the Whisper White base I stamped the snowflake in pool party, sometimes stamping without reinking.  I made a sentiment banner with the More Merry Messages Set. 

Whilst I was trying out the colour variations, I made a couple of tags from the leftovers.  Another tick in the box to have a supply of tags on hand! 



Can you hear me patting myself on my back?  Well it probably wont last but I will try! 

A big Hello and welcome to my new followers - Jen, Jmsluyter, Autumn Mist.  I'm so pleased to welcome you here.

I'm delighted to share with you that I was chosen as December winner at Less is More.  This was the first challenge site I entered when I started blogging so it's extra sweet to have this win.  Thanks Ladies I've a permanent big grin! 

I'm also delighted to say I was a Dynamic Darling at  Dynamic Duo for this card.  Wow hope this means I have a lucky year coming up even though it has a 13 at the end!! 

I also hope 2013 proves to be very lucky for you too.  All the best. x
