Merry Monday #73 - Christmas Presents

Hi Stampers,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Challenge this week. Lesley has decided to change the format of the challenges and mix them up a bit so they will no longer be all sketches.  This week we have this lovely image of all the presents decorated and ready to give on Christmas morning to inspire you.  We are to use the colours Red, Green and Kraft with Ribbon, Twine or Burlap.  Who doesn't love receiving presents, I do, and I found a template here at for my card and decorated it with Designer Papers and Ribbon. It was a fun way to meet the challenge, hope you will join us this week and start or continue to add to your Christmas card stash.

Stamps: S/U's Petite Pairs
Card and Papers: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, DSP Festival of Prints
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Finishing Touches: Taupe Grossgain Ribbon, Very Vanilla Tafetta Ribbon, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon
Cool Tools: Computer and Printer, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Mini Glue Dots, 2 Way Glue Pen, Crop-a-dile
Thanks for stopping by today.
