Festive Friday Fun!

merrymaureenpllut

Good morning! Yes, you are viewing a new card from me, not a delayed post from last Christmas!  I’m playing along with the Festive Friday Challenge this week.  The challenge is all about creating Christmas cards throughout the year so there won’t be a mad dash come December to make 50+ cards.  This week there is a trigger…the word “merry.”

Merry

I love that word and went straight to my PTI merry word die to cut out the word in a sparkly gold/silver glitter cardstock.  Then I “merrily” went back into my Christmas box and dug out a few of my beloved jingle bells.  Now, when I made this card on Friday, it really was snowing here so it wasn’t too far a stretch to get into the Christmas spirit :)  I’m also using some “Make it Merry” paper from October Afternoon so you see, this card literally has “merry” all over it!  LOL  What’s the weather been like where you are?  Really, I have nothing to complain about.  After the little snow flurry, we were back to sunny skies :)  Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Sunday :)

Love the glittery and festive Merry card. Thanks for pointing me to the Festive Friday challenge blog. I love making Christmas cards all year long and it so happens I created a very Merry card myself yesterday, so I have linked it up.
The sun is out here on Crete and with temperatures of close to 20 °C it really feels like spring. Have a wonderful Sunday!
