A couple of Hero Arts felt snowflakes and snowflake background stamp, an old Stamp In The Hand angel stamp with gold embossing powder, and the word Christmas using the "Spooky: font from the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge and you have merry day number six! Enjoy.

Well are you still feeling merry and are you ready for a fifth day of making merry? Today is brought to you by Santa who wonders if you have been naughty or nice. Since there have been no comments, I will follow your lead and offer no comments! Is that naughty?

Here is the card for a fourth day of "Making Merry". You can't expect me to be that merry every day! Today Mega Merry by Stampendous is decked out in green Prismacolor pencils.
The inside "christmas" is also from the Mega Merry set and the tree inside is a Hero Arts stamp. The red glitter strips were done with strips of American Crafts glitter card stock and the red glitter stars that sit atop the confetti trees were punched from the same card stock with an old fashioned type star punch. The source of the background paper is unknown.

So I guess we don't have to have seven consecutive days of making merry. Today Stampendous Mega Merry and Short Elf arrive in Copic colored splendor. Once again the Christmas greeting is from the Mega Merry set. Buttons and Karen Foster Scrapper's floss set off today's merriment. Nobody is commenting so I guess nobody is merry out there except me.

Can you believe it happened again? Another day of making merry with the Stampendous Mega Merry stamp. Today I colored in blues, combining Copic markers with Adirondack Refillable Alcohol Pens. The "christmas" stamp on the inside is from the Mega Merry set and the stamped snowflake background is from Hero Arts. The embossed snowflake background is a Spellbinders Snowflake Impressabilities and the silver snowflake is cut from Spellbinders "Create a Flake 1" Die. The inside "flake" was of course cut by hand around the snowflake "waste". Please don't have a blue Christmas just because I colored in blue!

And let there be a decree that we will have seven days of making merry with the Stampendous Mega Merry. Today Mega Merry is joined by Stampendous Short Elf and on the inside Merry Elf wish. Mega Merry and short elf are colored with a combination of Copic markers and Adirondack Alcohol Ink Refillable pens. Add a little Polar White Flowersoft to elf's wardrobe, and a plaid paper background (nothing says Christmas like PLAID) and we're ready to welcome the Christmas holiday in style.
(I'm not sure what that strange figure is on the shiny black cardstock on the inside of the card. Perhaps it is just the ghost of Christmas past making merry too!)
