Holiday House for Merry Monday

We're back around to Merry Monday.

The weeks fly by so fast!

Kreative Kristie is our hostess this week and she chose...

Create a card with a house/houses on it.


Aren't those little red and white houses adorable?




This card was salvaged from a boo boo.

We did a card in one of my Christmas card classes with the trees
and the little snowman in between.
Some of us didn't have a good aim (like me)
and ended up with levitating snowmen!

I had some of these Holiday Houses  colored and cut out so 
the 2 UFOs came together.

A little Dazzling Details to add sparkle 
(and some extra sparkle on the sentiment piece that covers up another boo boo.)

I love being able to salvage mistakes!

Now it's you turn.

Put a house or houses on your Christmas card
and join us at Merry Monday!

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Great re-using of all your pieces, Bonnie - I love being able to salvage things! Love the sweet winter scene and the sparkle! I agree the weeks fly by - can't believe it's already time for another Merry Monday.

Shelia said...

Love all the glitter on this cute card! I really like the red birds in the trees too!!

MaryH said...

Sparkles, beautiful colors and I love it when you fess up to your boo-boos. You manage to recover so well, and turn an "uh-o" into something gorgeous. The sparkle on the sentiment shows so well, and I'm loving the house with that soft blue washed background. Very festive. TFS & Hugs.

Linda said...

You would never know that this was a salvage card. It is so beautiful. The background is gorgeous. Love it.

Such a wonderful card made with a salvaged boo boo Bonnie, it is lovely.

I don't know a levitating snowman might have been interesting...... although not in the spirit of the challenge. And really there is no way it would be as cute or scenic as what you came up with here. I still have my Christmas houses out and plan to make this card even though the challenge is passed.

Good save on this one--I love the sweet house!
