Plaid Christmas for Merry Monday

Holy moly, I got to sit down and make a card for the Merry Monday challenge on the same day it came out. Do I have a fever, did the world fall apart? ROFL

It's WAY too warm in my area for this time of year so to help brighten my mood I put on Blake Shelton's new album, Cheers, its Christmas while I stamped. Now I will say right off the bat that I HATE country music but I LOVE Christmas music, and this album is fantastic! If you haven't checked it out already I highly recommend it! Beautifully sung classic carols and some fun new songs that he wrote.

Back to the card....Lesley has a great sketch for us this week! I was going to make a standard size card instead of a square one because I'm just not that fond of square cards but it just wasn't working with what I had in mind so I made a square card after all :) I just love this stamp set 'Christmas Lodge' and this tree is one of my favorites.

I used the retired DSP Frostwood Lodge (plaid, another one of my favs!) and kept the card very simple, as I wanted to main focus on the tree. My daughter came home from school, saw the card and said "oh yeah, that is definitely a Lisa card", LOL. I think that's good?

I hope you are having a great day wherever you are, and thanks for stopping by!
