CTS #101 + Muse #85 & MM #136 + Simon Says

We have had a great Thanksgiving weekend here, with a very nontraditional meal when Stefan decided he wanted to grill lamb on the spit. Lots of fun family time and very little crafting time until this morning, when I went to work on a couple more Christmas cards.

This first card is inspired by Challenge #136 from Merry Monday to use Red, Green & White with this super inspiration photo.


This clean and simple card pairs a modern tree die with a few enamel dot baubles and a simple sentiment.

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where Anything Goes this week.

My second card is inspired by this sweet beauty from Caroline Paton, the Guest Designer for the Muse #85 challenge this week.

I took the tree & bird elements, along with the color palette for my card.


The sentiment from PTI's O'Tannenbaum stamp set is curved to follow the line of the circle panel and split between the panel and card base.

A Memory Box Resting Bird sits on the snow dusted Memory Box Twiggy Tree.

The card design was also inspied by CAS(E) this Sketch! #101.

Thanks for stopping by,


ETA Missed the Merry Monday deadline :(
