Christmas and Summer All Together!

Two cards for two challenges this morning. I decided not to combine them, as I often do on Mondays.

The TLC was to make a rebus ...... a card with pictures in place of words. I think this is simple enough that you can figure it out without my help.

I also thought that I can never have too many Christmas cards made up in advance, hence the plaid and colors.

The CAS challenge this morning was to make a card with a garden theme.

We have an overabundance of lovely ferns, called "Ladyfern", that are beautiful, soft and feathery. We often find garden toads among them ..... a perfect hiding place, and bugs aplenty!!

This card uses two sets from Mark's Finest Papers, in case you have never see them before! They are called Our side of the Pond, and Speedy the Cat's Friends.


  1. Oh these are both so wonderful! The rebus card is amazing...where did you get the light switch, or did you draw it yourself? Too cool! And of course I love the delightful CAS garden card.

  2. The rebus card is cute as it can be! Love that frog on the second one!

  3. That Christmas card is so fun! I need to get started on my Christmas stash too!

  4. Anne girl these are GREAT what awesome images and you showcase them PERFECTLY!!!!!

  5. Love your Rebus Anne - please tell me that you drew the switch (you DO NOT have a stamp of that!!!)

    and your CAS garden card is lovely - what wonderful coloring on your frog - looks like he's going to jump off the card!!

  6. LOVE both of your cards, Anne!! The Rebus is so cool but I can't think of anything for this today. You'll have to let me know where you got that Earth stamp, I love it!

  7. Both are lovely cards, but I REALLY like that froggy one! I need to go check out those stamps!

  8. Oh Anne these are both great... love the rebus... great card... love it..
    Now the one with the dragonfly and frog... toadally awesome... love both of those critters... and in GREEN.... wow.. love it..

    When you get a chance... please write to me... I am having internet problems again... need your address on a letter... ugh... I am really up to my eyebrows.. HELP... Thanks... Love ya.. Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
