Sending you Christmas joy! 25

Mona Pendleton | Monday, December 5, 2016 @ 8:29 AM |

Hi there! I'm back with more Christmas cards to share. Today I have a trio featuring a cute reindeer image from an older Stampin' Up set that I hung on to from years ago.
I combined the cute reindeer with patterned paper and a stamped sentiment from PTI:

For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:

as well as the card concept challenge. I made clean and simply style cards, was inspired by the red and green color combination, the reindeer sitting on the mantle and incorporated the word joy in the sentiment. 
Up next is a 12" x 12" oil painted canvas featuring a terra cotta pot of geraniums inspired by Nancy Medina:
I'm linking my painting up to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Your cards are fun and festive and your geranium painting is gorgeous! I plant red geraniums in a couple of pots on my front steps each spring, and your painting reminded me of them. They add such a cheery note for everyone who comes our way.

A darling little reindeer and lovely spotty paper for your cards. Geraniums are among my favourite flowers, they remind me of my darling Mother and you've captured them beautifully.
