FMS178 and MM150


Happy Saturday, everyone!  I’ve been very neglectful in keeping up with my Christmas cards, so I made some cards this morning to remedy that!  I used Karren’s Merry Monday challenge of “gifts”:

and the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week as well:

for my Christmas card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 150 Christmas Stampin

Very Vanilla has been neglected in my craft room lately, so I stamped the gift image from My Creative Time’s Just For You stamp set in Gold Glory ink on some VV cardstock, then heat-embossed it with Gold embossing powder and trimmed it down.  I mounted it on a Soft Sky panel that was dry embossed with a snowfall-type EF, matted and bannered it with Gold Encore cardstock and it was finished!  And just for fun, I made another card with a vintage Santa image holding a 45 record that looks like a gift:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 150 Vintage Santa Record

I used a Cosmo Cricket sentiment and snowflakes, stamping the flakes on some CC DSP called Garden Variety, but it fits my Christmas colors very well!

Thanks for visiting today!

Hi, LeAnne! Your cards are delightful as always! Love the light blue with gold - very elegant and Santa is super adorable (as is your beautiful granddaughter!) So glad you could play with us this week!

Pretty cards today (I don't really want to be thinking of winter or snow or cold right now though;) but I'm sure you get that). I love your take on the FMS and the pretty colour combo.
Hi to Cassidy:)

Fabulous cards, LeAnne! I love the vintage image and the gold-embossed gift is so cute and clever! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches and Merry Monday.

Love your card. I was visiting from Merry Monday, but I recognized that sketch right away.

What a classy present, Lee Anne! And I love that jolly Santa! I think Elsa makes a wonderful super hero!
