Merry Monday Vanilla Suede

It's Merry Monday time again.  My, this year has gone by so fast! I can't believe that it 's the last Monday in November! Thanks to Merry Monday, my Christmas cards are finished. Now to sign, seal and post.  That's my Black Friday project.  

But here's my card for this week.



Our lovely Lesley found another wonderful inspiration for us.


You'll love the cards that the rest of the Design Team has created.  Do go check them out.

I'm going over to Pixie's Snippet Playground since I used Snippets for the poinsettia, fir and oval.  It's week 100 over there so there's lots of partying going on! Congratulations, Di, for keeping us all entertained and somewhat in line.  You are the best!

And it's the last Rudolph Days challenge of this year.  Sandra's challenge each month has inspired a lot of stampers to get those Christmas cards done early.  Thanks, Sandra.

CAS on Sunday is calling for a Winter Theme this week.  We only see poinsettias in the winter around here. And when I get a live one, I try to keep it all winter long. So I hope this will be accepted there.

Curtain Call is about to close.  Maybe if I hurry, I can make it with this CAS card.

Inkspirational Challenge is going with Anything Goes.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamps:  Bells and Boughs (retired)
Ink:  Soft Suede

Hey Bonnie, I'm trying to enjoy some cards at the Playground, can't get round to all of 'em, so I spotlighted those of folks I 'know'. Saw your name by this elegant card, and popped over to say how much I enjoyed it. This sentiment is one of my fav in the SU line, and loved your embossing oval. Simply elegant. You clever & industrious lady, to have all your cards ready ...good luck on your Black Friday goal! TFS, Hugs & Happy T-day. Give little Jack a big hug.
