Guest Designer for Merry Monday #200!!!

I’m beyond TICKLED (can you see me squirming? haha) that my sister Nina asked me to be her Guest Designer for Merry Monday Christmas Challenge 200th – woo HOO!  This is a BIG DEAL! 

MM 200

I decided to go with the “inspiration” theme – pretty pinks and silver:

MM-200-Barb-Derksen

I used a soft pink paper from Recollections, trimming deckled edges using the my Fiskars cutter (could not live without that thing!)  I layered up the top row and added a strip of sparkly silver washi tape.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the snowflakes (cut out of foil) then added pretty gems in the centers.  The middle snowflake is backed by a circle to make it the center of interest.  Lastly I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using a JustRite clear Christmas Labels One stamp by Amy Tedder Designs.

Though I struggle sometimes to be “festive” when its warm outdoors – any time a “00th” celebration comes along it becomes much easier to “get in the mood”.  Congrats to all of the Designers and hard working staff who keep Merry Monday going. And, of course to all of you bloggers and crafters who post your creations here too. Thanks all for inspiration all year long.
