Merry Monday #272 Glasses

Good Afternoon. With the snowy weather we are about to receive later this evening, it seems fit to be making a Christmas card. So I have decided to play along with this week's challenge at Merry Monday.

 If this card seems familiar to you my card is a muse of one of Melissa Phillips' card.

Just have to stamp a sentiment inside and I'll have card #6 done for 2018.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Make-It -Monday # 308 2017 Ala Carte

Happy New Year. Once again, I'm making a resolution to keep my blog up for 2018.  The same resolution as last year. Looking over my posts, it only lasted until March. Hopefully, I'll do better this year.
My first post of 2018 is for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday which is to pick one of the challenges from 2017 that one didn't participate in.  Seems like there were several for me to chose from.  I picked #296 which was done by Lexi Daly (Small images on repeat).
I chose to do a Christmas card because I don't want to be making 50 of them in November.
 (I already have 5 done.)

I used the small holly stamp from Holly Jolly (an oldie but goodie stamp set. The die is from Ways to Say Merry Christmas.

Challenge: Favorite Florals

The challenge today for PTI's 10th Anniversary celebration is to create a card using your favorite floral.  I love so many of PTI's floral stamp sets.  My new Favorite is Floral Sketches. I made a gift card set for my granddaughter's teacher. These layouts are all replicas of layout I googled.

This is my favorite.

Yankee Birthday Card:2017

    My brother-in-law is a HUGE Yankee fan. Every year I make him a special birthday card using a Yankee theme.  This year I did something special and made a coordinating envelope because in celebration of PTI's 10th anniversary, one of the challenges is to create a card with an altered envelope.

I created the background paper with my computer and the Yankee logo I downloaded and fussy cut.
Previous birthday cards can be viewed here:201220132014. I never did post the card I made for the past two years.

Baby Gift Tag

There are a ot of changes happening with Papertrey Ink. One new thing is a guest blogger the 6th of every month.  Today's Guest Blogger: Rebecca Luminarias. She is toting herself as PTI's Packaging Ambassador. In honor of PTI's 10th anniversary, the challenge today is to create a tag or some type of packaging.  I decided to make a tag for a baby gift for my niece's newly adopted baby.

I decided to keep some elements from the card I previously made.  thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Make-It-Monday #272 Masked Heart Wreaths

   It's been awhile since I participated in a challenge. When I saw the beautiful card created by Melissa Phillips for this weeks Make-it-Monday challenge I knew I had to participate. Besides, I need 2 more Valentine cards.

Most of my images came from Garden Gild with some leaf images from Garden Grace. Since I never bought the dies for Big Hugs, I had to settle for stamping the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by.
