Angel Rejoice for Merry Monday

We're still experiencing unusual extreme heat in southcentral Alaska (its 90 degrees at my house right now!) so I did some reverse psychology to try and get in a cool frame of mind. I went into my craft area, put on some Christmas music, set my fan on high and brought up the current Merry Monday challenge :)

When I saw the 'Rejoicing with You' set was retiring I snatched it up right away. I've always looked at it but could never make up my mind on whether or not I really wanted it. Seeing it retiring sealed the deal, as I know a ton of people who would appreciate a card made with this set.

I wont lie, this sketch scared me a bit and I had to do some extra cutting after I originally thought I had it all figured out but all in all I think it came out pretty good.

Now its back to listening to the Christmas music and trying to stay cool in this awful heat! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. This is gorgeous! Lovely image and the papers coordinate so well! I have to admit that I haven't had to put on Christmas music to cool off yet this season! Thanks for playing with the Merry Monday challenge this week!

  6. I love how you've cut out the angel and the placement! You did wonderfully with this sketch! My friend just returned from a trip to Alaska and said it was very warm there. It's cooler here in NC than it is there. Thank God! I'll remember the Christmas Carol trick. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Merry Monday, Lisa!
