Merry Monday 200th Challenge!

Monday, April 11, 2016


 Today is a super special day because Merry Monday is celebrating it's 200th Christmas Card Challenge - whoo hoo!!!

This week's challenge is special too...choose one of the challenges or combine several...the choice is yours!


In honor of our 200th challenge, each of the Design Team has invited a Guest Designer to help us party!  I'm thrilled to have Annette Witherspoon of A Spoon Full of Sugar as my Guest


Many times folks who are on design teams together don't know each other at first, but learn about one another as time and challenges go on.  Annette and I were on a DT together and I knew we lived close to each other, but had never met...until a Simon Says Stamp event which is held once a year in our backyard (Simon Says' home is actually minutes from us both).  It was like we knew each other for years and I immediately felt her passion for crafting!  As a matter of fact, she "sold" me on the MISTI tool with a complete demonstration right at the event :)  Thanks, Annette, for being my Guest at Merry Monday's Christmas Card 200th Challenge celebration!!



Isn't her card just gorgeous!!  I love Annette's clean, artistic style.  She's always trying something new and sharing her passion with others.  
 
 I hope you'll join us for this week's celebration -- can't wait to see what you'll come up with!!
