Joy To The World

Hello my friends! Before I show you my Mojo Monday card, I want to apologise for not returning your visits over the weekend. Saturday we were busy helping a friend move into her new home and Sunday after lunch both of us were knocked out by a decidedly nasty tummy bug. I'm officially off sushi for the next 5 years! But I promise I will get 'round to seeing your projects.

For today I have a quick card. I'm still experimenting with CAS, at the same time trying to get my Christmas mass production scheme off the ground...three is still my limit...oh bother!

Here's my latest venture - a square card measuring 4-1/2":

I'm playing with with Clearly Besotted's Merry Little Christmas. No patterned papers or multiple layerings. The background is some green CS embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.  I did some stitching to help me keep true to the sketch. The snowflake is by Spellbinders, dressed up with Liquid Pearls, Cosmic Shimmer and a rhinestone. 

I coloured the robin with Graph It markers and addeed more glitter and sparkle to his wee hat. I also inked the edges of the banners with TH Peeled Paint.

On the inside is a greeting from the Merry Little Christmas set. I used Memento Tuxedo Black and Bamboo Leaves ink.

I'm linking my card to the following challenges:

Mojo Monday #319 - sketch
Clearly Besotted Challenge #6 "Christmas"
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Got Ink?"
Make It Monday #166 "Anything Goes"
Hobby Cutz #24 "Glitter & Sparkle"

Thank you for stopping by today. I'll try and catch up on my visits. And don't forget to swing by (again!) tomorrow for a beautiful Tuesday Throwdown challenge. Y'all have a lovely evening and stay warm.
