Merry Monday #81 and more new Members

I can't believe it - I got 3 new members -what joy! I want to welcome

 Helen F - an avid card maker for many years - I know her for quite a while, back from when I only was on flickr and we exchanged quite a few comments over time - beautiful blog
Elizabeth is from Scotland and also an avid card maker - lots of treasure to find on her blog
Radhika - she makes not only cool cards, but also beautiful jewelry.

Go and check out those ladies' blog, if you have time!

 Thank you so much for joining - it means so much to me. Of course I have a welcome picture for you, as I have for all my new members. I chose this one, because we are close to Halloween and I associate ravens with that holiday - with their spooky color and appearance. 


This sphere with the cut out ravens is by Bill G. Floyd. We encountered him on a vacation in New Mexico, driving by his studio and being intrigued by raven sculpture near his home. We stopped and walked in and chatted quite a while with him. He also makes wind chimes out of recycled oxygen casings - really cool!

--X--

This was one of those times, where I immediately knew what to make for......
I recently got this cute stamp on ebay and my sister asked me what I wanted with it and I said  - use it for some card, what else??? And here we go - this is  the perfect occasion - the Merry Monday challenge - use a Santa on your card.


The Santa is little, but you know, he is far up in the sky, but one can clearly make him out - you can even see the Rudolph's red nose - below is a close-up:


Used some left over ric rac border in silver that I have left over from a hideous card I made yesterday - I am not going to post it I decided....That may be actually the first card that I won't show here,come to think of it.......This card deviates a bit from my usual style, but I still like it a lot. I don't mind doing some different styles in between....

As you can see I did a lot of sponging here. Stamps by: Magenta -sentiment, Inkadinkadoo - trees, Stampin' up - Santa, Papertrey Rickrack border die

This card also goes into the Snippets Playground - (left over ric rac border) - I think I will be the reason when Diane will limit the entries to this challenge....

And I am linking it with the Simon Says Monday challenge - Anything Goes

I LOVE this....I am a pushover for silhouettes, especially Santa ones! Great way to use that stamp and I love the trees and the rickrack! Thanks for sharing this with us this week!

Love this card, Cornelia! And Rudolph's nose is just precious! Thanks so much for joining us at Merry Monday this week.

Beautiful wintery scene Cornelia. Love your sponged sky with the moon. And so fun with your stamped Santa and reindeer. Thanks for joining us at Merry Monday.

Di said...

What a super card Cornelia! Beautiful scene and I do so love the Santa and reindeer stamp you used so well.

I did grin about me limiting numbers of entries to the Playground, I limited it to three per week quite a while ago when some enthusiasts were entering up to 20 cards but I can see how addictive using up those snippets is though :)

Sorry I'm a bit late calling by, still battling holiday laundry here :(

Hugs, Di xx
