Merry Monday #263 {Inspiration Challenge!}

Welcome to another challenge at Merry Monday! This is the challenge all about Christmas cards and getting a head start on the Christmas season.

Hello everyone! Lori here, before I get to this week's inspiration, I would like to take this opportunity to announce that another Merry Maker has been added to the team...please help me welcome Leanne Elliott from Banking on Crafts! We are very excited to have Leanne join us...here's a bit about her:


Hello friends I am from North Central Alberta Canada.  I am married to my
husband Brian, I am a Mortgage Specialist Assistant (banker), and I get to
work from home, so with crafting it works out wonderfully.  I also love
reading, crocheting, and spending time with my friends.  I started
scrapbooking with my friend Lori in 2002, and then it turned to into card
making and other paper crafts.  I still like scrapbooking, but love making
cards.  I started using copic markers a few years ago, and once again love
the art of coloring and now I am a Certified Copic Designer.  I enjoy
learning new techniques, and trying different things, sharing my joy of
paper crafts, meeting new friends and having fun!


Again, welcome Leanne and now onto this week's challenge...I fell in love with this little country decor "hot cocoa/treats display" while I was searching for inspiration. I love a country Christmas and the cocoa theme along with red/greens really caught my eye! I cannot wait to see what you create using the photo as your jump-off point this week! Happy crafting! Cheers!
