Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We had Fall Break so the kids were home from school which meant we had some fun and rested some as well! Days off are always welcome here and there to recharge our batteries! I have a very simple card this week for the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge! You can check it out HERE as well as see the other designer's cards!
Linda is asking us to add a gift to our Christmas cards this week! This photo actually inspired me to make my entire card front as my "gift". I was also thrilled to use this vintage Christmas wrap pattern paper that my sister gave to me last year. I thought the kittens with the gifts were absolutely perfect as well!
For being a simple card, I really did struggle with it. I wanted that cat to be front and center, but then it meant the tag would be in front of the cat. I messed with the ribbon more times than I wanted to admit, but in the end, put it back where I had it originally and just let the tag hang down a bit more.
I thought it would be fitting to use the "thank you for the gift" sentiment on my "gift wrap" card. It is from the Painted Poinsettia stamp set, which I have yet to use the actual poinsettia image. I have made a lot of Christmas cards this year, so I thought it would be nice to make a few thank you cards as well. I actually don't want to make too many of those either, because that is what I do AFTER Christmas when I'm feeling sad about putting everything away! LOL!
