Merry Monday #44





Hello blogger friends!  Happy New Year!  It's time to get back to the Merry Monday Blog Challenge with Challenge #44.  Today's challenge was a color one, and we were to use Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Real Red.  I bought this stamp set from Our Daily Bread called Joy Tree,  before Christmas, but since I had all the Christmas cards I needed thanks to the Merry Monday challenges, I didn't ink it up.  I love it!  I also think it would look great embossed, but I'll save that for another time.

I'm looking forward to the challenges in the weeks to come.  It was wonderful to have the cards all finished and ready to go this year, so I want to do the same in 2013.  Thanks for the great ideas, Lesley!

By the way, I do need to take my Christmas tree down.  We live in a little upstairs apartment, so I bought a 3 foot tree I could put on my buffet/sideboard where it wouldn't take up any floor space.  It worked perfectly!  I like it so much, I'm in no hurry to take it down.  Maybe next week. . .

  2. What a wonderful stamp, Carol, and I love the way you've made some of the words pop! If you're enjoying that tree, there's no reason to take it down. Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday this week! So glad to see you back!
