Furry Christmas Shaker for Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday morning!


This week Sue is our hostess and she chose


I have grandchildren but I don't make Christmas cards for them.

I just give each family a card.

But I do give each of the kids a Christmas tree ornament.

So with this in mind, I pulled out this NBUS, Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament die set
and went to work.

The ornament can be removed from the card to be hung on the tree.

Now I have to do several more.

I have die cuts, stamping, coloring with markers (Copics) and dry embossing
so this is perfect for the CAS Mix Up June Challenge


I'm looking forward to seeing those cute Christmas cards in the gallery at


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Your ornament card is just darling Bonnie! I don't usually give my grands a Christmas card either, but I always give them an ornament as well. lol Great minds....ok mine's not so great. That image dogs and cat are just to cute! Love the way you have colored them and how fun to add the jingle bells. From the looks of it, it could be a shaker ornament??? Hugs, Brenda
