Merry Monday #136 - Fairisle Sweaters, Mittens and Hot Chocolate

Hello Friends,
For today's Merry Monday Challenge Bonnie is challenging us to Use Red, Green and White for our cards.  I love to use these festive colours at Christmas.  I have gone for a Northern Hemisphere theme of Fairisle Sweaters, Mittens and Hot Chocolate for my card.  It's certainly not what we would wear with our 40 degree Celsius plus temperatures at Christmas. Hope you will join us this week for Bonnie's challenge.

Stamps: WPlus9 Fairisle Background, S/U's Make a Mitten, Scentsational Season, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card and Papers: Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede Marker
Finishing Touches: Mini Crystals
Cool Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Make a Mitten Punch, Big Shot, Sizzix Holiday Collection Framelits, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals
Thanks for popping in today.
