The Home Stretch......Merry Monday #85



It's my last week as Featured Designer with the Merry Monday team. They are an amazingly talented group of gals and I have enjoyed working with them this month!  I have also been glad for the opportunity to add some more cards to my Christmas card stash.....I am creeping closer to that magic total of 80!  I write my cards Thanksgiving weekend so I think I will finish "production" just in time. Of course a lot depends on how well Miss Emma naps this week!

Linda, I really love this card! The diagonal embossed stripes take the eye right to the deer and tree. I like that the circles are ofset and not centered. Very pretty!

linda love this one. The team is going to miss you I'm sure, but i know you're on others so you'll be busy as ever I'm sure.
I'm hoping to count what I've completed this weekend as well. I modify my list every year, but it's still up and over 80.... wow! Many of my list people have quit sending out cards, but I just can't stop sending them... so hard for me. Guess I'm old school. or maybe just old! hugs.

I was admiring this over at MM. It's so elegant. Beautiful stamping and the subtle embossing and way you have laid the pieces out just works beautifully. What a treasure for your stash! :-)
