Merry Monday Challenge #244!



Good Morning Stampers and welcome to a new week at Merry Monday. If you've been playing with us since the beginning of the year, you should have a stash of about 15 cards already. What a great way to get ahead on your Christmas cards to make December a little less stressful!


So Linda is our hostess this week and she is asking for wreath's on our cards. This is what I came up with:




I decided to use different blue's on my card layers and I also colored all of the holly berries blue as in blueberries. Did you know that the state of Maine where I live, harvests blueberries each year? I remember back when I attended school, there were families that left for weeks at a time to harvest blueberries. They would arrive back two weeks late for school but the income was important in those days. Dave and I have 12 blueberry shrubs in our garden and I love picking fresh blueberries in August!



I added Clear Wink Of Stella to my bow. It's hard to see in the photo but it is striking in real life. I hope you enjoyed my card to go with my blueberry story. Please join us this week by playing in our challenge!
