MojoMonday 485 and Merry Monday 236


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  A couple of Christmas cards today...while I had my supplies out, I decided to make two of them!  The first one uses the Mojo Monday sketch:


and some Carta Bella papers with an image from Cornish Heritage Farms called Stocking Elves:


I just love these wee little ones creeping down the steps!  I added some twine, glimmer stars and a sentiment from Amy R Stamps:


Technically, I could have used the above card for the Merry Monday challenge, which is "stockings":


but I wanted to use this new die from Cottage Cutz that I got after Christmas!  Isn't it cute?


 Papers are also from Carta Bella; sentiment is from Clearly Besotted!  Thanks for popping in today!

We are having Cassidy's room repainted, which means stripping off the wallpaper first, so we cleared everything out of her room but the furniture.  She also had a wee bit of a cold yesterday, so she stayed home; it got very quiet and when I went to peek in to see what she was doing, this is what I found:


I can only imagine that she was really tired if she fell asleep on the floor!  Have a blessed day!

These are so cute! I love your silhouette stamp, it's precious. And the stockings dies were definitely meant to be used for that challenge, who could resist them? You're smart do do these all through the year! Cassidy must have been under the weather. Bless her heart!

Both cards are so pretty, LeAnne! I couldn't pick one over the either to like more! I love the silhouette image and the beautiful papers but I also love the stocking die! And the plaid paper is to die for! Love them both and great job on the challenges! Aww, poor Cassidy...hope she gets to feeling better soon! Have a great day! :)

They're both super cute cards but they can't hold a candle to lil' tuckered out Cassidy!

LeAnne the stockings and the "string" hanging them is an awesome die! I love it! And I love the plaid paper you have in the background too! Thank you for sharing this at Merry Monday!

Love both of your cards. Such a cute image with the wee ones sneaking down the stairs. I love the string of stockings on the 2nd card along with the plaid paper.

Love your cards--so eye-catching, even from afar.

I like your take on the Mojo Monday card, well done! The second one is great as well, I can see why you wanted to use the die cut, its super cute.

Linda Callahan said...

Wow I love that silhouette image! Sweet card! And those stockings are pretty cute too! Cassidy must be excited about her room remodel.....all the excitement wore her out!
