Peace and Joy Card - Merry Monday Challenge

The Merry Monday Challenge is a new one for me but it is designed to help you get ahead on your Christmas cards, so that's always a good thing. I never have enough Christmas cards and always end up rushing to make more at the last minute every year!

This is my first real attempt at colouring with alcohol markers so please be patient with my efforts.. I know the final look is not the greatest but I am learning. I had to resort to some of my Copic markers to do the hair since we still don't have the neutrals from CTMH in our hands yet. 
The sketch is shown below the card. 


Products are Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted:

Papers: Avonlea Paper Pack, White Daisy Cardstock, Saddle Cardstock
Stamps: Angelica Blessings, Snow Flurries (ret.)
Inks: Saddle, Saddle Pigment Ink
Accessories: Artiste Cartridge, Clear Sparkles, Ribbon (not CTMH), Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder (not CTMH), Markers - Honey, Cotton Candy, Twilight, Sky, Copic Markers - E27, E97 (not CTMH)


  1. I'm glad you found Merry Monday, and hope you'll return week after week! I love your ribbon on this card, as well as the layered ornaments for the words! Cute.
