Merry Monday

  The theme for our inspiration this week at http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/  is "Tropical" Christmas. I found this sweet picket fence Christmas image with the sand, beach and Palm trees on the Internet and thought this was ideal. I cut out a Palm tree from my Cricut cartridges with my Explore, popped another layer of fronds on top of it for depth, fussy cut the holly from the background paper and added red pearls for the "berries". The flower-edged frame is also cut on Explore, the sentiment is computer-generated. Check out Merry Monday on the link above for more awesome inspiration.

  2. Hello Josie: I love this card, that fence with it's Christmas lights, the beautiful beach just outside and the little red wagon carrying that little Christmas tree and other ornaments it's just so endearing. I think this is what the Holidays look like over in the Tropics.
    Thank you for sharing your sweet and fabulous Christmas card.
