Merry Mistletoe and Tulips

Happy Monday!

Hope your week is off to a good start.  No complaints here, except that there aren't enough hours in my days!  lol...

I have a couple of quick cards to show today - I promise not to jabber your ears off.

The first card is a Christmas card, and uses the Merry Mistletoe set from Doodle Pantry.  The blue background paper is from the Merry Mistletoe set. The mat is a silver swirly cardstock from my stash - don't know who makes it, but I thought it would dress up the CAS card a bit.


Don't forget that you still have lots of time to enter the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #17!  Just for entering the challenge, using a Doodle Pantry Image, you will receive the adorable Quirky Penguin set free!


The next card is All That Scraps' C.C. Designs Tulip Trevor taking flowers to his sweetheart.  The background and butterflies (Martha Stewart Punches) are from the Echo Park Victoria Gardens collection.

 
All coloring is done with Copic markers. Pearls are Kaiser Crafts.  Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.  I am going to enter this card into the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.  I will also enter it at Flutterby Wednesday's which is an open challenge this week. Just have butterflies, fairies, or angels on your project!

I want to thank all of you who have been emailing and sending things for the No Kill Shelter's pet themed craft corner.  Every single image, stamp, charm, ribbon, etc., is greatly appreciated!

Have a good week!

Hugs and Blessings Galore,
Patti J.

Food for thought: The 'good old days' were once known as 'these trying times'...

Oh, your Christmas card is so pretty, and your "Trevor" is just adorable!

I've looked but so far haven't found anything yet; I know I had some ribbon with some dog paws and bones on it, but god only knows where it's stashed... LOL!!! I'll keep looking, hoping to find it!

Hugs!

Two wonderful cards Patti, LOVE that little guy he is totally adorable, and your Christmas card is BEAUTIFUL GF!!! Hope you are having a great week!!!

Rachel said...

Aww, I love the image on the second card with the tulips! They're my favorite (although I don't like getting flowers, haha). I'm not that fond of the name of the image though because I don't like the name Trevor. I had a former student by that name who cursed me out! Too bad all Trevors can't be like that one on your card!

Curt in Carmel said...

Great cards Patti! I love the first one because it is so different and non-traditional as Christmas cards go. I am usually "ho hum" when it comes to traditional looking cards for Christmas. I really like that one. Best, Curt I'll be sending my "donation" to you for the shelter soon. Hugs, Curt
