Merry Monday #75 and more




I'm back to making Christmas cards...on Merry Monday a great challenge to inspire and get you started on your own Christmas card list. I was inspired by the lamp the candlesticks and the lovely sparkling ornaments.

  

 
I drew the lamp and used my stylus to shape it after attaching it to the black base cut. Pretty quick and easy card for my list. 

Looking at the photo...I'm picturing this card with a red base and a brown frame. I might have to do another one.

How about you...are you ready to get started? Check out the design teams inspirations...awesome stuff. Thanks 

And now on to other ramblings feel free to scroll on by and leave a comment or question... I will respond kindly.


Pictured below another silhouette and the amazing water droplets stamp I just got and couldn't wait another minute to test it. I was heat embossing these weeds when the mailman arrived with my purchase...woopee....with a ready to be reclaimed card base and gray ink I stamped the first image. Then I repeated with fresh card stock. I love it. Being a water sign... Pisces I'm attracted to anything water related. I was away from my computer for about an hour and a shower so now that I'm back....I think the purple thread will have to go.



And up last is this pumpkin colored card with a web of cheese cloth. Blogging seems less stressful  with a tidy space. I mean did you see my space? Previous post before and after shots. The fun thing about WOYWW is so many bloggers are willing to spend the time to read and comment. So thanks Julie and all you snoopers...you are super.



 Ta ta..Be well and thanks for visiting:) ~ Carole

  12. Oh My Word....yal will have such an awesome time. I love the idea of your birdhouse crafting project for people who want to join. I swear I don't think we have anything around here. We have state parks but nothing this nice closed in like your pavilion you are showing. Heck, I don't have enough relatives to make this big a shindig.
