Merry Monday #176!

Hi Everyone! So glad you stopped in today to visit. I have a new project for our Merry Monday Challenge. This week our hostess is Sue and she wants us all to use a frame on our Christmas card:

If you visit my blog frequently, you know I'm a big fan of the Hearts & Home Thinlits Dies. I cut out my window shape, snipped off the grids on the inside, turned the window sideways and it became a frame for my stamped scenery:

I used the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder to create wainscott for my wall. Pretty neat & easy huh? I added a small strip of Whisper White Cardstock at the top of the wainscotting for a chair rail. Below is a close-up of my winter scene:

I even have some glittery snow and a small bow glued to one of the evergreens. It's a pretty simple card to create if you have the right tools. What stamper doesn't have the right tools.....right?

I hope you'll visit our blog at Merry Monday to see what my wonderful teammates created for you this week. I'm sure you'll find lots of inspiration to draw from!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
