Merry Monday #102

 Merry Monday all!!  I have been under the weather for over a week now, but I am finally feeling back to normal.  I've been missing my craft room and can't wait to be spending a bit more time in it :)

Welcome to another week at Merry Monday, where we all get a head start on our Christmas cards.


This week, Debbie has chosen the theme of using mistletoe on your card.




I really went with non-traditional colours using red, yellow, and moss green plus I used this sweet lil cutie pie (although my husband says she looks "freaky" - but what does he know)


Again, using one of my favourite embellishments, flowers:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Vintage Ephemera kissing girl, Simon Says Stamp! Big Holiday Wishes (sentiment), KaiserCraft Tiny Dot (background)
Inks:  Craftsmart Gold and Chocolate Brown, Tim Holtz Old Paper and Frayed Burlap
Papers:  Pink Paislee Snow Village,  MME Vintage Finds
Cardstock: Bazzill, Recollections
Bits/Bobs:  Wild Orchid flowers, Little Yellow Bicycle stick pins
Tools:  Oval and Labels 8 Nesties,


I created this card for the following challenges:  jingle belles - spirit of Christmas past (vintage)


Don't forget to check out the rest of my teamies super fantastic creations at Merry Monday.  The creativity this week is crazy awesome :)

Thanks for the visit - cheers!

Wow! I really like this. That image is fabulous. Hope it's still available! It reminds me of a doll my Mother used to have. Your card the layout and colors just go perfectly with that image.

She doesn't look freaky at all! And she's blowing a kiss! What could be sweeter? Love the pretty flowers that frame her!

What a darling card Deanne. Love the vintage image in the oval... the flowers are so pretty.

SOOO gorgeous Deanne. I love the wee girl in the image, is she blowing a kiss from under the Mistletoe. I love the paper flowers as well. I have masses of them but seem to have lost my way from my beloved shabby.

Karren said...
