Merry Mix of Holidays - Merry Monday #82





When Lesley Croghan "called" and asked me to be a guest designer at Merry Monday for the month of November I couldn't say no!  I was delighted to join this group of talented ladies to create a round of holiday cards!  

For my first Merry Monday card I used the new photopolymer set from SU called Endless Wishes for the snowflakes and sentiment. So many great holiday sentiments in that set! But before we get too far into the preparations for the upcoming holiday season I thought I would let you see how Emma celebrated last week's holiday.  Here she is dressed as a kitty cat on Halloween waiting for the first trick or treaters to arrive!







                                   Hope you join in the fun at Merry Monday this week!

Which is sweeter card or kitty, I'm not sure! Emma is just so precious standing by the window! I love how you punched the snowflakes out with circles. Is that vellum they're stamped on? Four weeks, and four more Christmas cards for you!

Hi Linda, welcome to the team! I love this card. The vellum snowflakes are a fabulous idea and the wee hanging snowflake is a wonderful touch. The strip of red ribbon on the side finishes it beautifully.

The embossed vellum circles are stunning and I love the way one of them appears to have fallen and become an ornament! Your little Emma makes the cutest little kitty EVER!
