Merry Monday #255 {Joy}

Welcome to another challenge at Merry Monday! This is the challenge all about Christmas cards and getting a head start on the Christmas season.

** Before we get to this week's challenge, we would like to introduce a few new faces! Please help us welcome to the Merry Monday team JoAnn Burnham, Kelly Lunceford and Kim Heggins!! We are so excited to have these ladies join our design team - please be sure to head on over to the Designers page and get to know each one of them better then visit their blogs and welcome them...they'd love to hear from you!

Next, we'd love to introduce our 4 Guest Designers who will be with us from September - December! Please help us welcome Charlotte Ehrukainen, Felicita Johnson, Linda Wetterlin and Kimberly Wiener! These ladies are amazingly talented and we are so lucky to have them with us for the next 4 months! Please check out these ladies' stories over on the Designers page and send them some welcome cheers...

Hey Merry Monday fans...Marcia here and I'm so excited to be back after our summer break!  So let's get started again and put some JOY in our Christmas cards!  You can use the picture for inspiration or simply include the word JOY somewhere on your Christmas card!  Have fun and we can't wait to see what you come up with this week!  

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.
