Merry Monday #265:






Happy Monday all!!  Only SIX more weeks until Christmas!  We are on our way to viva Las Vegas for the week so maybe I can find some fun Christmas gifts there!

This week at Merry Monday, Nina would like us to use an outdoor winter activity on our Christmas card:




Now don't try this at home kids!  The first penguin is using the toboggan like a snowboard - might not be the safest way to get down the hill, he is such a dare devil!  I decided the little deer should be a bit safer =)





Stamps:  Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together, My Favorite Things Handwritten Holiday
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Stitched Snow Drifts, Reverse Confetti Scalloped Squares
Extras:  Stampin' Up! inks, Tim Holtz Waterbrush, Reverse Confetti Midnight ink, Zig Clean Color Real Brushes






As always, do not forget to check out the rest of my teamies' fantastic creations at Merry Monday and come play along too!!!

Good Sunday morning to you!  Well winter is certainly here, we have gotten quite a bit of snow the past week.  The snow was softly falling yesterday - it was SO pretty to watch!

Speaking of all the white stuff, as much as I love it, we are off on holidays.  We are going to get some sun and warmth!


This week at The Paper Players, Nance's COLOUR challenge is WHITE ON WHITE:

Stamps:  (none)
Die cuts:  Simon Says Stamp Fa La La, Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Deer, Reverse Confetti Fa La La Circle

NOV Reverse Confetti Blog Hop:



Welcome to Reverse Confetti's November New Release blog hop!  






Everything that has been showcased for the past 3 days are now available in store!






I created my card using a couple of cuties from Reverse Confetti Cool Friend.

I started by layering Cheerful & Kind pattern paper with Scallop Stripe Panel, Fa La La, Dots Tag Layer, and Tag Duo Confetti Cuts.





I watercoloured this cool pair and added a paper pieced hat to the one fellow.




Lastly I added a Christmas Cheer sentiment on my tag (from the Clear Treat Box/Box Wrap Combo - my favourite!).


























Blog Hop List:
And our 'Fetti Friend, Laurel Seabrook




Thanks for all the love this week - cheers all and a happy Wednesday to you!!!

NOV Countdown to Confetti - Day 3:



Welcome to Day THREE of Reverse Confetti's New Release Sneaky Peekies!!!!!!






Today the team is showcasing Happy Winter.




Isn't this set the cutest???  I love the over-sized pom pom you can add.  In Canada we call these hats toques (pronounced like fluke but with a "t"). We are in a nasty cold spell right now [-25C (-13F)] and so the toques have been out for a while now (and mittens, and scarves, and heavy jackets!)

To create my card, I first heat embossed the border in white on Reverse Confetti Lead cardstock.




Next I added Scalloped Square to pop up my Free Spirit pattern paper toques.




Lastly I added a Holly Jolly sentiment to my tag and tied it all up with a jingle bell.





















Be sure to check out all the designers and comment for your chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate!  Details can also be found on Reverse Confetti's blog.
