Happiest "Holly-day" Wishes...


Wouldn't this be an adorable scene in any one's yard? A sweet little snowman holding a clothesline for the bundled up birds? I fell in love with this image from Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps.  Mary Ellen is so wonderful with her daily dose of free images and if you haven't been to her blog, I highly recommend her.  This is my card for the latest Make It Monday linky party that is now open!! As you can see, holly is the main theme here and I just wanted to leave one little tip or idea for you before you go. The Christmas tree is made by using the MS Holly Border Punch and by cutting it into little strips, I've designed this sweet Christmas tree to match the holly embossed background.  Love getting more bang for my buck!  Hope you've enjoyed the card and please come over to Make It Monday and share your makes with us. Doesn't have to be a card either, just as long as it uses paper products.  Our sponsor for the week is none other than Cupcake Cards & Crafts and they are offering a paper pack for the prize!
Hugs n' Happy Holly Days...

Every single bit of Cheryl's card just makes me happy! The color combination is glorious, the ideal embellishments, and that scrumptious little adorable gingerbread absolutely spread the Christmas cheer. Beautiful card Cheryl and thank you so much for sharing this with us at Make It Monday!
