Merry Monday #26

Hello Weekend!

I recently found another great Christmas card challenge - Merry Monday.  Great name!  The creator and host of Merry Monday is Lesley Croghan, who also manages the Freshly Made Sketches weekly challenge.  

This week's sketch is a great one and I decided to use it to make a set of Christmas cards.  I've been making a few card sets lately, but this is my first Christmas card set.  I used one of my favorite holiday pattern paper collections - October Afternoon's Holiday Style - which is a fun retro style.  This is the set I came up with:

I re-purposed a clear box that my Papertrey Ink stamps came in, replacing the box banner with one of my own making.  I used some bitty dot paper and Holiday Style shape stickers.  There are 4 cards in the box:

Sorry about the quality of the photos, they seem a little blurry - or maybe that's just me. 

Since we're on the subject of holidays, I recently bought my first Halloween paper collection and my first Christmas paper collection of this year.  It's starting!  Soon it will be the holiday push again!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
