Merry Minis for Freshly Made Sketches

Greetings, Stampers, and Happy Monday! I am glad for last week to be over, and I certainly hope this week has better things in store. We're still trying to pick up the pieces from the hurricane here in New York. Thousands are still without power, or even worse, homeless. Getting gasoline is near impossible. Now the weather forecasters are talking about a Nor'easter later this week. Agghhh!

I squeezed in some time for much needed stamp therapy over the weekend and created this card for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. I had my little Merry Minis images all stamped, punched out, laying on my desk and waiting to be a card. I was pleased to be able to put them to use with this layout.

Aren't these little images just the cutest?! They can be used in so many ways, too. I stamped my images and punched them out with a 1" circle punch. Then, I mounted them with Dimensionals on top of cardstock punched with the new 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch.

Merry Minis are adorable - worked perfectly with the sketch! This is so cute for the holidays! We escaped the brunt of the storm here in upstate NY - just a few trees down and a short power outage. We were so fortunate - the devastation is unreal. Glad you are ok!

This is such a sweet card, Sandy! Please take care and batten down any hatches that are left. You guys sure don't need another storm.
