Merry Christmas - Merry Monday Featured Designer


My blogging buddy, Lesley Croghan, invited me to play along at Merry Monday this month as Featured Designer!

Here is the fun challenge, Merry Monday #98, this week...stitching and buttons...my favorite!


This Merry Christmas card came together easily!  I grabbed a couple of Christmas themed papers that had a touch of rustic, layered them up, stitched a thin border, added a row of buttons, embellished with twine and heat embossed the sentiment!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
