Happy Tuesday, peeps! And happy May Day! Yikes, where did April go? The Merry Monday challenge this week is to make a Christmas card with NO stamping!
Just one? I have enough Christmas paper to make hundreds!! Well, how about three? I have a 12x12 pad of Simple Stories' Handmade Holiday paper and it has tons of fun little country images just itching to be made into cards! I still love country stuff, how about you?
The size of these cards is 3 1/2" x 4 1/2"...they will still fit into a notecard-sized envelope. I trimmed each panel from its page and added some embellishments; on this one, I added a diecut sentiment from Concord and 9th, and a little star I punched from SU's Corrugated Elements:
This one features a few diecut buttons; the "joy" is printed right on the paper...sweet!
And on this one, I added a "ho ho ho" diecut from Peachy and Cheap, cut from some SU Color Theory DSP:
All the designs were just printed paper...so easy and quick! What a great challenge! Thanks for popping by to see my creations!
On Sunday, Dana, Cassidy and Wayne were visited by Dana's half-brother Kevin and his bride Kristy! We usually only see them at Christmas; I didn't get to see them, but I was glad Dana's family did! By the looks of it, I think they must have ridden up from Maryland on their motorcycle!! And as you can tell, it was still cloudy and chilly...MAYBE today we'll have a warmup!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
