Merry Monday #72

Good morning! This is my last week as guest designer for the Merry Monday Challenge Blog! I have had fun creating Christmas cards during August! I want to thank Lesley for asking me to join in! I always love to be asked to come out and play! (And special thanks to my friend Rose Miller for introducing me to Lesley through the Seize the Birthday Challenge Blog!)

Here is the sketch for this week:

Another great sketch! I stayed with "simple and easy to mail" this week!

I love plaid. This paper reminds me of a plaid skirt I had when I was about 7 years old. It was a "Scottish kilt" and even had a huge, gold pin for decoration. I loved that skirt! I don't wear plaid these one wants to see a size 14/16 plaid skirt! But I do love me a plaid paper!

I did NOT use any of my own stamp designs this week. I pulled out a few from my bin of Christmas stamps and gave them some love instead! I love this Santa from Graphic 45!
