Mistletoe freebie and Card Challenge

       I'm behind on svg freebies, but I'm also very behind on some cards I NEED to make.  It is so hard to make sympathy cards due to death.  Please send me some ideas or a pic of your card that you have made for this theme.  We really need a challenge for this theme.  I think it is the hardest one of all.  Any takers out there???
       I'm not totally please with this card, but I gave it my best.  I think I made the image too small. ( Kind of a copy of Starry Night by Van Gogh style!)  It is for the Stretch n' Bubbles Challenge (Creative Chick), but I can also used it for the OWH challenge as well.   Anyhooo....

Size: A2  ( Van Gogh style...haha)

Mistletoe popped into my head and I didn't see any mistletoe svgs that I liked so I made my own.  How did a ball of fungus with a pretty bow become such a popular  kissing tradition.

My suggestions: Don't cut out the black marks...just pencil them in.  I only added one to the svg. Don't bother with the black dots on the white berries...just use a black pen to mark a dot. I'm sure there are prettier bows out there.  I did my best to limit the cuts but still make it work.


  1. Oh wow I lovve this card... It is fantastic.

  2. Well, I think the card looks great! I especially love the green stitching...fabulous!

    I hear you about the sympathy cards...I actually make quite a few...(for our local church leader), but I'm not sure how many I take pictures of...I'll have to see about a blog post...

  3. FUN card and cute Mistletoe! TFS!

    I emailed a link to the gallery on SCS with some ideas for your Sympathy cards. They are very hard to make. Do you have the retired SU set called Natures Wonders? The shell works well for sympathy cards and there's a lot of nice sayings that work well for the inside.

  4. I have a couple on my cat blog at http://mkandthecrew.blogspot.com/. I have a couple more that I've done recently that I could send you.

  5. I think your card is my favorite and it's not due to the Van Gogh style, Halloween theme, or pure fun of it either!

  6. I think that this card turned out fantastic! Love the color combination.

  7. I love the card! Sometimes we are truly our own worst critics and this is probably one of those times :) Thanks Bunches for the Mistletoe svg! *Hugs*

  15. HI! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog for the Sketch Challenge post :) I really appreciate your comment.

    As to your question, I didn't use a punch for the flower. lol I bought those flowers at Michaels (a pack for $1) They're made of paper and I happen to think they're very pretty (as well as the price I paid) ha ha

    I am following your blog now. I love it! <3

    And I absolutely LOVE the card you made for the challenge! It's absolutely gorgeous!

    See you around
