Merry Monday #8


Happy Wednesday!  I managed to make my Christmas card a little earlier this week, using Lesley’s Merry Monday sketch #8:

And here is my creation:


My image and background are from Crafty Secrets; the sentiment is from Flourishes:


I stamped my vintage Santa on Naturals Ivory cardstock with Not Quite Navy ink, then overstamped the music with Baja Breeze.  Some Baja Breeze seam binding provided a little additional embellishment.


I really wanted to add some bling or glitter or a button or something, but I forced myself to leave it CAS—less postage this way!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy LOVES grapes.  We are teaching her that she cannot eat in our living room, so this chair has become her go-to chair for any quick little snack!  It is close to the living room doorway, so once she’s finished, she can make a quick getaway to her toys!




All done!

I love those two stamp companies too! Your "blues" were awesome! Are you sure Cassidy isn't signalling for more grapes?! LOL She sure is entertaining and cute as can be! debra

Do you save these and use them at Christmas or do you go into overdrive in November and make new ones?

SURPRISE! I have several cards on my post today!

Congratulations on your win last week. It was an amazing card. This one is too! I love the blue, the paper, the music background and the lovely script on the sentiment.

This card is so pretty! I love the soft blue! Cassidy is getting so big! Such a cutie!

Linda said...

That is a great idea to put the chair by the room. You should write a How to be a Wonderful Grandmother book.
Love your card I want to do a card tomorrow.

Love how you carried the muscial stamping onto the background of the setiment! So pretty in blues!

All done, except for the one grape still clutched in her fist!!! So cute!

Just beautiful in blue, LeAnne! I did a blue one for Merry Monday, too. That's where I spied yours. Love the subtle musical note background you used.

Your blog has a new look, too, and the blog sidebar decor takes my breath away! Simply gorgeous.
