Merry Monday: Aqua Christmas Wishes

This week's challenge at Merry Monday is to use aqua, silver and white - what a fabulous winter combination!


I dug through my stash looking for snowflakes that hadn't yet seen ink and I came up with the Stampin' Up clear set (really clear, not just unmounted) called Endless Wishes.  It's the first photopolymer set that I had gotten from them.  I like the hand-drawn look of the snowflakes and of the sentiments.

Aqua Wishes

I've had a wonderful time being the featured designer this month for Merry Monday.  Thank you to Lesley and the rest of the team. I have some Christmas momentum going now - I need to keep it going so I can go into the next holiday season feeling refreshed.  

I hope you all pull out your aqua and silver and play along!
