Merry Monday Mistletoe

Yes, I know it's Tuesday - I'm a bit behind on Merry Monday where Colleen asks us to make a Christmas card with mistletoe.


Yay! I have more than one stamp set with mistletoe on it and, hard to believe?!, I've never made a card with mistletoe. I found two sets with varying lengths of mistletoe and my thoughts went to a dangling sprig. I had already cut a bow intended for a Merry Monday wreath back in April (never finished). I decided to repurpose it for the mistletoe sprig.

Mistletoe
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-tone Black, 
Michael's Green, American Crafts plaid (from Target's hot spot at Christmastime)
Stamps: Hero Arts CL998 Happy Holly Days and CL797 Under the Mistletoe
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 20; Hero Arts DI316 Happy Holly Days Frame Cuts
Tim Holtz Christmas Bells die (retired Sizzix # 658765)
Other - Copic Markers, Stickles, foam tape, Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

Our chorus show was fabulous on Sunday!! Many said it was the best show ever - quite a feat in over 60 years of chorus shows! Next we'll perform on the Great Northern Union Chorus "On to Fame" show, June 3rd. GNU chorus is like our male counterpart and they'll be off to their International contest in July. Yesterday we had a potluck dinner instead of rehearsal and revealed our "Sweet Adeline of the Year", a years of service award. Preparing for that put me behind on Merry Monday but I managed to get a card done this afternoon after doing some chores I couldn't do on Sunday.

Thanks for stopping and be sure to check out the inspiration from the MM Design Team!!
