Merry Monday Sketch

Merry Monday
Only had time for a quick card today and this Merry Monday sketch was perfect to work with.

The Christmas theme surfaced when I saw the star on the sketch and the outside weather, which has robbed us of our sunshine, made me think of warm fireplace to sit by as I drink my tea and read a book.  Can you tell what I want to be doing right about now LOL!

I swapped the star out for a snowflake, dug around for my bells, and used them as my accent piece along with some gold cording.

A quick and easy card.  Well....sort of....as the the process of getting to the final version was not as quick and easy as I would have liked LOL!

Super snowflake and I think I hear jingle bells ringing. I have a jingle bell song going on in my mind now. LOL
Pretty Christmas card, Marisa.

that embossing looks so cozy! We started the fireplace this week although the days are still sunny and warm. Duvet is going on the bed this weekend! That snowflake looks like it's showing off with the bold colours and bling! We don't have a chance against her! Happy Friday indeed!

I love that red snowflake, the bells and twine and the idea of sitting in front of a fire with a good book! Marissa, you have such a wonderful style of card. I always enjoy seeing them, even if I don't tell you often enough. Thanks for sharing this with us this week at Merry Monday!

Such a happy card. I love polka dots. And that is one cool snowflake - lots of personality.
