FMS215 & MM182 - Again


Yay, it’s Friday!  Time for the weekend!  I am trying to redeem myself with the girls at Merry Monday, so I’ve created another birdie card, much better than yesterday’s fiasco!  This uses a 3D sticker from K&Company; some recycled cardstock from a card I received last Christmas;  a couple of dies and a single sentiment from Waltzingmouse:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Simple Cardinal Waltzingmouse Christmas

This is just a wee little card, about 3 1/8” x 4 1/4”, because that was the size of the stitched mat…I mounted it on a Crumb Cake card of the same size.  The Mossy Meadow pinked mat is from W+9, and it fit my sticker nicely:


Here's the inside too:


Both sentiments are stamped in Mossy Meadow and are from Waltzingmouse’s Compliments of the Season!  This is also for Christmas Cards All Year Round’s challenge of “Keeping it Simple”!

Now, on to my Freshly Made Sketches card, which is also a Christmas card! 

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Simple Deer Christmas Sweet & Sassy

I found this scrapbook paper in my stash and I have absolutely no idea from whence it came!  I am not sure if I bought it or it was a gift…no manufacturer’s name on it either, but the little deer were already printed on it, so I just added the banner and the embossed piece, and it was done!  In order to make it fit the sketch, I had to make the card a little bigger…it’s 6 1/2” high!   The sentiments are from Sweet & Sassy, and the Old Olive embossing is from Tim Holtz….the twine is SU, as is the little pine bough, stamped in white craft ink:


Thanks for visiting today!

It’s Advent Calendar time!


Enjoy your day!

Both of these cards are just gorgeous! Love that embossing folder piece! It really makes the whole thing so elegant. Cassidy looks like she is really enjoying Advent! So hard to believe that things are moving so quickly towards Christmas. ~chris

LOVE how you have used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I love that the deer are looking at the sentiment, and the embossed stripe is just the right look! Thank you for playing along with us.
