I've done another card for this week's Merry Monday challenge. Want to take a look?
I stamped a border with the mistletoe stamp from the Easy Events stamp set then colored the leaves and berries with markers. Then I double matted it and tied it up with a bow.
My Bird Builder punch hadn't had any love in quite a while and using it was like finding an old friend. The body of the bird was punched from Real Red. Then I stamped the bird from the retired Hostess set, Punch Potpourri, with Craft white ink and punched the wings from that.
The sentiment is also retired. I believe the set was Small Script.
Here's the sketch again in case you missed it last time.

We looked out the door yesterday evening and it looked so smoky that we thought there was a house on fire in the neighborhood. But we didn't smell any smoke. We realized that it was a cloud of pollen and rushed to make sure all the windows were shut tightly. This morning everything had a thick yellow coat. It is messy but a small price to pay to see the green on the trees and the flowers blooming.
I'm so happy you stopped by. Thank you so much for leaving me comments so I can visit you too.
