http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.com.au, and used plain white cardstock for the base of the card with striped paper from my stash, it was the last piece and the dots from the kaisercraft 6" paper pad, Christmas Collections, I cut the Ornaments from the Spellbinders Heirloom Collection, Clear Stamps, I stamped on the other side and cut them out, as the stamps have patterns on them and I didn't want the patterns, I cut the ornament toppers from some gold corrugated card which I also used for the hangers, I used jewelled brads to hold them all together and I used the Seasons Greeting cut from some scrap paper with a Marianne's Creatable cutting die, and I used some silver stars from my stash, I have had these for ages but I thought they looked ok. I used a gold gel pen to draw around the ornaments to accentuate them and also drew a bit of string from the bottom of the ornaments, just to decorate them. Hope you all like them, I don't usually do mono cards, this is the first for a long time.

http://52cct.blogspot.com.au, I made an A5 card from white cardstock, and added background paper which came free in Love Cardmaking Magazine issue number 2 .I used another piece of white cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called I think Christmas Countdown, and used a Memento Ink Pad cottage Ivy, Christmas scraps from my scrapbasket for the flags and used a small doily and a scrap of ribbon to make the bow, I made a doll from the Prima Doll stamp and dressed her as a Christmas Elf with Diamonds and Pearls on her dress and Hat. I used red glitter paper for the frill on her dress and Kindy Glitz for the pom pom on her had and a silver Snowflake that I bought from China, I also put diamonds on her shoes and in the lower right hand corner and used a green Happy Christmas on the right hand side on the inside of the card I used the same paper as the front and on the right hand side a Hero stamp with the same green ink as the front, hope you all like it!!!!!

http://52cct.blogspot.com.au I originally made a huge mistake with this card, after I adhered the designer paper I found that I had stuck it upside down, so had to cut off the front of the card, and make a new base, so far so good!, after adding the ribbon and the little tag with the reindeer on I stuck it all on the base, and I then cut out the sentiment, all these papers came from a paper pad from Bo Bunny "Silver and Gold Collection" this is a 6" x 6" pad, just right for card making!

I used an eye chart from Graphic 45 "The Curiosity Shoppe" paper pad, I used two slide on paper clips, a pink butterfly and a blue star also I used a clip-on paper clip, and 5 little rhinestone style flowers, a clock from Bo Bunny paper pad "Timepiece Collection" and 3 butterflies cut from a punch and a nice little card with flowers. I call her the Office Dolly , I enjoyed making this tag, and hope you like it too.!!!

http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.com.au I used a 6" square white cardstock for the base and used a Kaisercraft piece of card stock from their Christmas Collections Paper Pad, with a Merry Christmas die cut from, I am not sure which brand made it as it was a gift from a friend, I used a Sizzex cutting die "Snowflake #17" and cut three of them from silver cardstock and three green gems from a pack I bought in a cheap shop. I quite like the look of the designer paper with the flourishes, hope you do to!!

The car is from Tim Holtz "old Jalopy" and I cut it out of red glitter paper and cut to top windows off to make a "Ute" as we call them in Australia, with plain red for the accessories, I used some hub cap brads that I bought from China, and glitter from Kindy Glitz "Chrystalina" the grass was also hand cut from the green glitter and the chapel is cut from a Marianne Creatables cutting die. and the stamp is a freebee from Australian Simply Magazine issue 72, they have lovely free gifts in every issue of the magazine!

http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.com.au The inspiration for this card comes from Australian Simply Cards Issue 72, it came with templates for the bow as well, this is an excellent magazine and I am so happy I receive it every month. I used a green cardstock with a red, and shaded the green with Memento "Cottage Ivy" and the red cardstock with Memento "Rich Cocoa" I used dimensional tape to attach the bow and I used the free stamp that came with the magazine for the sentiment on the tag, which I also shaded the edges with "Rich Cocoa" and I embossed the bow with an npress embossing folder "Retro Swirls" . Hope you like this card!
