Make It Monday #120 with Meljen's Designs

Hello and welcome to Make It Monday's new linky party! Can you  believe how fast this year has flown by? I can't either and December has literally been a whirlwind around my house. If the decorating, baking, shopping, wrapping, waiting in the long line to ship your packages :( and the many other events going on this time of the year isn't enough I threw it a total reorganization of my craft room (mammoth project) and updating our son's old bedroom to accomodate his new status as a married man. Geesh Louise, I am tired and have miles to go yet lol. Oh well, enough of my crazy happenings how about you. Are you ready for Christmas and do you have all of your cards made? If not, I hope this CAS style card will give you some last minute inspiration. I love this image, Cheery Lights Mailbox, by Meljen's Designs and couldn't wait to color it. I trimmed and chomped the corners and added a green dp with a red gingham ribbon to accent. Easy peasy as they say and for a finishing touch I stamped Merry Christmas at the bottom.

Pick of the Week 

I love the vintage images of Santa and the tag design. Thanks for sharing Shirley!
I absolutely adored this entry by Rox as well :)

Prize is winner's choice of 4 single digi's!
Be sure to check out all of the inspiration by my teamies on the challenge blog or by clicking their links on my right sidebar. MIM will back in two weeks and I pray each and every one of you have a blessed Christmas.

Hi Lisa

Oh gosh I'm tired just reading about everything you have been doing this month!! I'm afraid with the whole end of the school year thing, the boys being home on holidays and me being down with the flu, I have zilch organised for Christmas. At least the boys got the Christmas tree up and decorated.

Your card is sweet, love this little letterbox image.

Your picks this week a wonderful, those trees look amazing.

Michelle :o)

I think this clean design is great to show off the sweet letter-box image. The rounded corners is a nice touch, and the gingham ribbon adds to the Christmas feel of this card.

Margaret said...

I love the bright, cheerful colors on your image and that sweet gingham bow!
Both of your POTW are wonderful! Love the trees!!
Reorganizing your craft room and your son's room while preparing for Christmas?! I'm beginning to think you're really Wonder Woman in disguise...
