Make it Monday!

I'm so excited for this week's challenge!!!!  Why?  Because we have our "old" friend Meljen's back as our sponsor!  I love these adorable images!  And right now, you can get 25% off ALL Christmas Colored Digis!  That makes getting those last minute Christmas cards out super easy!  And every single Friday there are new images, can you believe it????  Just awesome! 



Don't forget, Make it Monday is always an open paper challenge!  And I know how much we all love paper!!!!  (But we're not addicted...oh no...we can quit any time...yup!)

Here is my creation, using Caroling Snowmen:





They're so cute!

Now, onto my Pick of the Week!  Honestly, I consider myself a fairly decent "colorer" of images.  But every once in awhile, I am just blown away by someone's talent.  (Usually these ladies are on the Make it Crafty DT...led by Zoe, how could they NOT be amazing???)  And this week I was literally left speechless by this amazing creation from Kit and Clowder:

 
Isn't she colored perfectly???  I mean, the shadow on her leg, the horse...I could stare at it all day!!!
 
 

Don't forget, we're an open challenge so if you use paper this week on a project, be sure to link up with us at Make it Monday!!!! 
 
Thanks for popping by!  Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Happy New Year!!!!

Rene, I saw this on MIM and it caught my eye immediately. The colors you chose are outstanding. Bright, cheerful and pop right off of the clever DP background framed in snowflakes. It's my POTW. Lol

Hi Rene

I don't know about you but I reckon I probably need a 12 step program to get me over my paper addiction, lol.

Your card is super super sweet, these snowmen are just adorable. I have never seen snow, but when I get there I am going to have to make me a set of carolling snowmen just like these ones.

I was blown away by this image from Alyce too. She is truly inspirational.

Michelle :o)
