Merry Monday 35


Happy Monday!  How can it be OCTOBER already?  What a busy weekend I had….so I made this Merry Monday card REALLY simple---in fact, there is no stamping on the outside…just a quick sentiment on the inside!  First, here’s our sketch:

Fun!  I love those little banners, so popular right now!  And here’s my card, using some diecuts from Reminisce, mounted on some Melissa Frances paper:

MM35 - LeAnne

I added a couple little holly diecuts and stamped a sweet vintagey sentiment from Flourishes on the inside:


I sure hope you’ll be able to play along with us at Merry Monday!  And be sure to check out the exquisite samples from the designers this week!  You can see it all at Lesley’s blog!

Here are a couple more swap cards:

and a last little shot of Cassidy:


She found a little toy train that she was sure was a camera!!!  Enjoy your day!


  1. You always have the most gorgeous DSPs LeAnne - another gorgeous card to add to your stash!

  2. I agree, another beautiful card. Those papers and that Santa are just yummy.

  3. That beautiful Santa reminds me of some sheets of wrapping paper we had when I was a kid! We were so careful when opening a package with that paper and it was used for a few years before it totally wore out. They knew how to make paper to last back then. Anyway, LeAnne, I'm really enjoying your card! Beautiful papers and I love the embossed banner and holly!

  4. Love your papers and the use of Banners dies LeAnne!! Fun Holiday card to add to your collection. Beautiful swap cards too!

  5. Adorable!!! LeAnne, you always make the cutest Christmas cards and this one is no exception! I love the vintage look to this and your cute Santa! :)

  6. What a lovely Christmas card, the vintage Santa image is so cheerful! Love the banners, a great sketch!

  7. Fabulous card LeAnne, I love the vintage look. Santa is so cute and the little holly leaves are wonderful.

  8. Terrific Merry Monday card...sweet and vintage-y!

    Your swap cards are all terrific too...lots of talent there :)

  9. You have been busy. I see your cards often but don't always get to comment because Its hard with my old ipad. Much faster on my computer. But I love the cards you make. These are all gorgeous , love the Santa one. Cute picture and too funny she thinks it's a camera. Love that flag house(barn) in the background as well.

  10. That Santa face is darling! Reminds me of a vintage card one might have gotten in years past. :)

  11. Super sweet card....this is the Santa that brings me back to childhood it! Thanks for sharing LeAnne..have a great week!

  12. Really cute card. I love that beautiful Santa face you used.

  13. What a fantastic group of Christmas cards! But, I have to say, the shot of Cassidy stole the show! :) How sweet she looks!

  14. Love the retro feel of the card - wonderful! Feeling in the holiday spirit already!
