Merry Monday Mistletoe

This week the challenge over at the Merry Monday Challenge Blog is to use mistletoe on your creation.  I figured I'd have to sit this one out because I was pretty sure I didn't own any mistletoe, but then I remembered I have one stamp in a set that qualified.  I used some paper from a Christmas pad that my friend gave me and this card was born:
And just to prove to you that I had intentions to join in last week's Merry Monday here are the cards that I started but didn't finish because I got sick.  I wasn't liking how the first one came so I intended to make another one.  That's where I stalled out.  I finished them up today which is pretty major because I'm the Queen of Unfinished Projects.  Er... um.... I mean the Princess.

I love this little mistletoe stamp and the yellow ribbon is an unexpected surprise! I'm glad you're sharing last week's cards with us too! They are both adorable and aren't you glad they're finished? Glad you're feeling better!

That's a cute, cute mistletoe card! Mistletoe sounds like an ailment of the foot doesn't it? LOL Seriously, this turned out cute and so did that other pre-started cards! Well done!

Good job remembering about that mistletoe stamp! I don't have anything at all so I skipped this week. I like that glittery trim on Santa's suit.

Your mistletoe card is wonderful! We were on the same wave length with pearls for the berries. I like the ones you finished up, too!

The mistletoe challenge is HARRRRD! Who woulda thunk we were all so mistletoe deficient? I love how you added pearls (and definitely love that sentiment) and man, if getting crud isn't a reason to not finish a card then I don't know what is.

Ka-Yute! All are adorable, and it's hard to feel like crafting when you feel crappy too. You did good, Princess. (you're not alone in the UFO's either). TFS
