Mojo Monday #477

It is the first Monday of the month and that means contest time over on the Mojo Monday blog!  A great way to have a chance at winning a Verve set of your choice as a Christmas pressie :)

In the spirit of December, I made another Christmas card.  Such a fun time of year to make cards.   Love giving a hand made card to a friend, or mailing one out to someone extra special :)

I started out with a piece of MME Holly Jolly paper and pulled in some colours from there.  Love using this PTI poinsettia die and it has been under loved this year so out it came.  Stretching the poinsettia colour range a bit with a rust one, but that is the colour I needed {grin} as there was some rust in the MME paper.  Used PTIs Holiday Wet Paint set and dies for the sentiment and threw in a snowflake for good measure (or overkill, depending on how you look at it lol).

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples.  Should you wish more details on the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.

Got the house all decorated for Christmas so just have Christmas cards, wrapping and a bit of baking to do.  This month is always a blur and I am very much looking forward to having some time off over Christmas!

Speaking of which, this is the last Mojo sketch of the year!  With December being such a busy month,  and most of us short on time to get things done, the Mojo Monday team will be taking our Christmas vacation for the rest of December.   If you need a good sketch, or some inspiration for a card, you can always flip back through this year's sketches and galleries. Loads of goodness there!

We will be back on Monday, January 2nd with the first sketch of 2017.   Blessings!

A wonderful card, Marisa. I do like the rust colour for the poinsettia with the soft neutrals of the background.

Lovely mix of papers, colors, and details. I really like the muted look of it all - super soft and sweet. Hugz
