MERRY MONDAY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE - #156 (PINECONES, GREENS AND THE WORD BELIEVE)

Merry Monday #156 (Pinecones, greens, & the word Believe


www.merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.ca

Hi Everyone, another week, another Christmas card.  I created this one with a lot of leftover scraps and odd pieces from other cards.  A friend gave me the textured paper, so I used a die cut to frame the pinecone image.  It took me forever to find something with Believe on it.  You think I would have a least have one stamp that says it   Anyway, I finally found a sticker and improvised it a little.  But, hey, that's what these challenges are all about!




I hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by....until next time.  Heather :)

MERRY MONDAY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE #154 (LET'S GET VINTAGE)

Merry Monday #154  (Lets get Vintage)
 


I'm back............Between Easter weekend and the garden I have been busy.  We went down to Abbotsford for my Mom's 93rd birthday and to visit with family over the Easter Weekend.  Good times.

I also have a big yard that needs constant attention.  We pruned a lot of shrubs and trees.  Cleaned up the back hedge and had someone take all the branches away.  We also put out 34 bags of debris.  Thank goodness that is all done.  Now it is time to start the rounds in the garden again as the weeds never stop. 

I love vintage and this was a nice challenge to do.

 
A closer look...

 On this card I used old dsp, glitter paper, a bit of  lace and the Snow Flurry die cut.  I used Chocolate Chip card stock and also a sponge dobber with Chocolate Chip ink around the dsp and image card to give it the vintage look.

Thanks for stopping by, and hope you leave a comment or two. 
Have a great weekend!  Heather :)
