Holiday cheer and love tags


Happy Monday!  It's raining here in Northern California and I am so excited.  We barely survived the Halloween fun this weekend.  The final tally of candy we gave away at our house was over 1400 pieces.  Crafty fun to share, while I procrastinate from prepping for this week's card class.  The top class is a quick take on the new PTI Make it Monday Challenge, using fabric pieces to make a Christmas tree.  Since I'm me, I tried using several different May Arts ribbons for the look.  Truth be known I don't love it, but my 7 year old said he liked it, so that's good enough in my book.  



And this card was inspired by the latest Fusion Card Challenge, I love the look of the flowers, so I pulled out the Altenew stamps, watercolored a scrap of letterpress paper (it was someone's wedding invitation), added a Lawn Fawn sentiment, Studio Calico heart and some white May Arts silk.  Have a great week everyone...

I love how you are generally the very first one to post in all of the PTI challenges;) I think your tag is sweet. Put it on a package and I think you will change your mind.
