Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #167 - Hearts

 

 Welcome!  I'm so glad you stopped by today because that means I get to share a new Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge with you!!  Bonnie has a lovely challenge for us.  Create a Christmas Card with a heart on it!


I had a few ideas for this challenge, but landed on "creating" hearts with candy canes!  I've seen this done with a variety of things and had always wanted to try it -- the challenge was my opportunity!  Here's what the Design Team came up with:



Now it's YOUR turn!  The challenge will run for the next TWO weeks.  For the summer, we'll let the challenges run for two weeks since folks tend to get busier with kids out of school, vacations and just taking it easy! 

I'm also joining in these challenges:
