Merry Monday #98 {Country Charm with Stitches & Buttons}

Welcome to another challenge at Merry Monday! This is the challenge all about Christmas cards and getting a head start on the Christmas season. Each week, one of our designers will suggest a challenge to spark your creativity toward making Christmas cards! We hope you will join us! 

We are also at the start of a brand new month and we have another fabulous FEATURED Designer with us! I am excited to welcome, Stacey Schafer to our team for the month of March! I asked Stacey to share a bit about herself...

Stacey Schafer

I am a wife, mom of three, special education teacher, and avid paper-crafter!  What would I do without my stamping time?!  I am absolutely thrilled to be guest designing here at the Merry Monday challenge!  What a brilliant idea to create Christmas card throughout the entire year!  I'd love for you to stop by my blog, Stacey's Stamping Stage!

Welcome, Stacey!

This week Designer Susan is asking for 
stitching and a button(s)! 

Add some Country Charm to your Christmas card!

Here are some ideas:
Use FAUX Stitches
Use paper buttons

Have fun and try your best! We are so happy you joined us!

1. Each week there will be a brand new challenge posted on Monday at 5am (PST).

2. The challenge will be either a theme, an inspiration photo, a sketch or a colour combo.

3. Each participant is encouraged to comment on 3 cards in the Gallery. (Who doesn't love comments!)

4. Have fun!

5. Follow the weekly challenge closely.

Here are the team samples to inspire you!
