I am excited to let you know you'll see more of me in 2013 because I've joined the Merry Makers at the Merry Monday Challenge! I was so honored when Lesley Croghan asked me to join the design team for 2013 and more than thrilled to be working with such a talented and inspiring group! Lesley is the host for this weekly challenge on her Always Playing with Paper blog, offering you fun inspiration for creating a Christmas card! Participate every week and you'll have all your holiday cards completed and ready for mailing in December! What could be better than that?!!
Lesley is mixing things up for 2013 with some exciting changes to the challenge, starting with a color challenge for the New Year! Future challenges will vary (no longer just sketches), so I hope you'll join us each week to find out what's new and get a jump start on your Christmas cards for 2013! Here are your colors to work with for this week:
My card for the challenge is clean and simple and so very easy! I wanted to create a contemporary design that could be easily mass produced and required minimal supplies. If you like that idea too, then this card should work for you too. Let me know what you think! I think it's fresh and fun and I hope you do too!
Be sure to visit the blogs of my fellow Merry Makers to see how they've used this fun, retro color combo! I know you'll be inspired! I can't wait to see what you create!
