Merry Monday 55


Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Merry Monday Christmas card challenge!  Today, Lesley has another fun Tic-tac-toe challenge:

I chose the center vertical column, and since I hadn’t done anything vintage for a while, I pulled out my Vintage Christmas from Crafty Secrets:


I just love this Santa image!  I used Soft Suede and a neutral palette to qualify for the Jingle Belles challenge to “Keep It in Neutral”!!!  I used some Lost & Found MME papers….just gorgeous…..and I used a SU paper-piercing template in a banner shape to pierce my little embellishment:


I dyed some seam binding and colored a silver brad for my shabby bow, and there is even a little additional piercing on my little holly leaves:


I hope you’ll play along with our fun challenge this week!  Be sure to stop over at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, to see all the cool creations our designers have made with their tic-tac-toes!

I got Cassidy some Easter bunny clings, which enjoyed sticking to the fridge:


She embellished them with her magnets:


And she even played with them on the floor… bunny is “eating” apples and the other one is “eating” carrots!!!!


Thanks for visiting today!
