My entry in Beccy's Place Fifth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge for the letter "M" is Mrs. Claus. This is another one of Beccy's free digis. I love all the details that Beccy added to this drawing that has an old-world feeling. From the beautiful long braid, the hanging lantern, the holly and pine branch, and the cute little teddy bear, the image is so fun to color!

I love to upcycle old cards. This time I cut the snowman in the round center from the front of the card to use as the base of a snow globe card. Cut a round piece of acetate, and used strips from the front of the card to create the snow globe base. Finished it off with a sentiment and a few sparkly snowflake stickers. What a fun way to give an old card new life!
This is the original card-

  2. Three more fabulous cards Kathy, you're doing a great job! I love the sweet little girl on your first card, she's a cutie. The sentiment works great with the image too.
    Your colouring on Mrs. Claus is fantastic, you've really brought her to life. I like the piece of ribbon you tied around the bottom of the image panel with the tiny tag that says "wish". Nice touch.
    I love seeing upcycled cards too Kathy, although I don't think I've ever made one. I always tie my Christmas cards together and put them away at the beginning of the new year. I never think to bring them out again for crafting... I really should add that to my list.
    Well done!

  3. Beautiful colouring on your cute little lady and I like the sentiment. Thank you so much for linking up at Word Art Wednesday. Please come back soon. Sue (DT)
