A Merry Mix


Hi there!
I am squeezing in one more Thanksgiving card that never made it to my blog lol.
This week at Make It Monday the DT were free to make anything they wanted to. While I would have loved to share some of my recent creations I can't because they are gifts and the recipients read my blog. So I'm offering up this card for this week's linky party. I love the Fall Wreath image by Meljen's Designs. I used it once before here if you want to take a peek at it. It's so versatile and as you can see I dressed it up with Orange Peel Stickles for a little sparkle. Sorry about the poor picture quality, we were out of town for the holiday and couldn't get a good snap without glare. The merry mix part is that the dp's I used are actually from a Webster's Pages Christmas paper pack. ;) Verve Stamps supplied the sentiment and die I placed it on while Spellbinders dies provided the backdrop for my focal image. A brown satin bow, pearls and leaf pins completed my card.
They are offering a wonderful prize of a £10 voucher.
My Pick of the Week is...
Love this image and the gorgeous sentiments she used to create her background. The striped paper is so festive and so is her little jingle bell. Such a nostalgic card for the Christmas holidays!
Avril, thanks for sharing your talent with us at Make It Monday.
For more inspiration check out what my design teamies created to jumpstart your mojo. Click HERE for the challenge blog or on their links in my right sidebar. I'm grateful to be crafting alongside these wonderful and talented ladies.
Okay, I am off to get started with holiday cleaning and decorating. Wanna join me? I could use the help since my chief elf is away at college this year. The DH will get the boxes out but he is not into decorating (although he loves it when it's done). Guess that old saying is true - a woman's work is never done.
FYI, both LOTV and Meljen's Designs are currently having sales so hurry before they end!
