Merry Monday 150

Hi Friends, I'm playing a Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge this week. It's one of my favorite challenge blogs, the ladies are so sweet. This week we are to use gifts on our cards. Easy right? I kinda had a hard time but I got it after a while of searching my stamps. I'm trying to keep my Christmas cards fairly simple for mailing.

This week I used My Minds Eye Winter Wonderland paper and matching stamp set. Papertrey Ink card stock, Momento Inks, ribbon from Michaels and some gems were used on this card. By the way, if you want your bow to sit like this on your card, use 2 pieces of ribbon. One piece stretched across the piece of paper and taped on the back, then a second piece slipped under the horizontal piece and tied into a bow by hand.

I used Inspired By Stamping February Sketch. I thought it was a current one because Paper Playful had it on their Friday post but is was incorrect. I don't blame them though because keeping track of all the challenges would make my head spin!!!! People get mad at them but I don't. They make it possible to find challenges to link up to without searching the web for hours. ( In case you've never heard of them.)
