 I am all over non traditional colours for Christmas cards.  I thought I'd extend the non traditional theme and go with some Valentine's paper!  I am working my way through all the lovely sentiments in Beyond Measure and I'm almost done so I can start all over again. This set is timeless!

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!

Christmas Joy ~ PTI Make it Monday


 Hello!  I'm back today with my take on this week's Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge.  I used a Zigg Watercolour pen to outline my snowflakes as I don't have any copic markers (not a ONE!).  I love how it turned out...pretty in pink!  Thanks for stopping by!
