Merry Monday Challenge #265!

Nina's theme for our Merry Monday Challenge this week is to add an outdoor winter activity to our projects. Because I did not have any stamp sets that were appropriate, I choose "gift giving" as my winter activity. See the gifts on the recipient's door step?

I stamped and colored all of the images using my Stampin' Blends. I love the shading on all of my images. I think the door is my favorite part!

There's only a few weeks left before Christmas. Do you have all of your Christmas cards done yet? If not, what a great way to get started or add more to your collection by joining in with our weekly challenge. Did you know we also have a Facebook page?
