The Ornaments of Life ...

musechristmasvisions.blogspot.caMuse:  ChristmasVisions Guest Designer

I am so thrilled and honored to be this week's guest designer for MCV.  In fact, I was so surprised when Ardyth asked me if I'd consider, I had to revisit her e-mail a few times to make sure I was reading it correctly! 

My card for your inspiration is a snowman.  I thought it would be fun to stamp and color.  Did you know that coloring for adults is both relaxing and stimulating (that's what I keep reading)?  A number of details in my card may pique your interest for your own creation; I'm looking forward to seeing your designs.

  1. Lovely card Marilyn! I plan to enter my 2nd Muse challenge and you have given me plenty of inspiration:) Living in Australia, Christmas is more about sunny days at the beach, rather than snowmen, but Northern Hemisphere scenes often make their way onto our Christmas cards lol! Thank you for this great card!

  2. Hi Marilyn! What a darling card! Happy to see you as the MCV guest designer!!
