Merry Monday 102

DSCF1787

Happy Monday, peeps!  How was your weekend?  I am suffering from a wee bit of a cold or allergies…so I had a sniffly weekend to go along with lots of rain!  But I was not deterred from making a Christmas card for this week’s Merry Monday challenge, which is to use or make mistletoe:


I only have a couple of mistletoe stamps, so I went to my stash of vintage Christmas postcard digital images and came up with this one from Crafty Secrets of a little girl whispering in a mistletoe-and-holly-clad Santa’s ear:

The image was pretty colorful, and I don’t usually use this many colors on a card, but I embraced them, LOL! All the papers are digital, also from CS, and  I did stamp a PTI mistletoe image in Versamark on the green panel and dabbed on some green chalk to give it a subtle look:

I added a SU sentiment from Bells & Boughs, a little twill ribbon and a button.  I used the sketch from Lesley’s Challenge #3

I hope you’ll stop by the Merry Monday blog to see the other wonderful mistletoe creations, and to share yours as well!  Hope to see you there!

I was working on some projects for an upcoming class, and Cassidy wanted to make a card too!  Here she is cutting out some flowers with the Big Shot, and she knows exactly what to do:

I think that little sprite is whispering in Santa's ear telling him who has been naughty and who has been nice (or even naughtier). I love the greeting and the piece you put it on. It really kept with the vintage feel.

Another gorgeous card, LeAnne! Your mistletoe-laden Santa is fabulous! Love Cassidy's flowers too! Not surprised at all that she knows her way around the Big Shot!
