Merry Monday Add some Holly

Here we are back to Merry Monday again.


Nina chose the challenge this week.


Isn't that a pretty picture?

I went super quick and easy with this.

I hope you'll put some holly on a card and join us.


Some other challenges I'm playing this week.

Pixie's Snippet Playground is pretty wet and soggy, but nobody really minds.  I'll put on my high boots and grab my holly snippet and go for a visit.

Jingle Belles is looking for Christmas cards that feature predominately red. I think there might be enough red to qualify!

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra is anything goes.

Cuttlebug Mania asks for a TOUCH OF RED.  It may be a bit more than a touch.  I used my Big Shot to cut the Merry Christmas die and holly.

Thanks so much for the visit.

Enjoy!
