Merry Monday 137:


Good morning all!   What a super fantastic weekend I had.  I Christmas decorated all weekend and crafted, need I say more ;)

We bought a new tree this year as since we down-sized houses, our 12 foot tree just didn't fit anymore.

As promised, here is my non-traditional coloured tree.  It's full of purple, pink, green and teal goodness!!!  Though the other day I overheard an elderly lady (while looking at The Festival of Trees) ask her friend why anyone would put pink on their tree.  The answer is simple really, it's my favourite colour =)


And a day time close-up of all that glittery goodness!  And yes, I LOVE a full tree =)



This week at Merry Monday, I have chosen the theme of using a bird on your Christmas card.


In contrast to my Christmas tree, I went with a CAS bird card.  I started with My Favorite Things Diagonal Stripes stencil and sponged with Stampin' Up! Pomegranate (retired) ink.  I then added some birds from Wplus9 Love Birds and Paper Smooches sentiments in Onyx Black VersaFine. I finished it off with some Doodlebug and MME enamel dots





As always, don't forget to check out the rest of my teamies' super fantastic creations at Merry Monday and enjoy the rest of your week!  Cheers!

Love these sweet birds and the soft stenciling in the background! And what a gorgeous Christmas tree. We have a new one and need to get it out and see what it looks like. I hope we like it! Have a great week, Deanne!

Oh my, I LOVE your pretty tree, Deanne! I love that it's in the non traditional colors and full of sparkle! A job well done, girl! Your card is just as pretty with your birds and CAS design! Happy Holidays! :)

Oh my goodness! What a fun and colorful Christmas tree! One day I want a pink and purple tree. I like that your pink Christmas bird matches your tree. :)

Absolutely brilliant card creation--love it! Your tree is out of this world--wish I could see it in person! Pink is my favorite color, too, but no tree this year as the puppy would constantly be after it.
