Can you believe that Christmas is only one month and eleven days away! That means if you are going to make handmade holiday cards and haven’t yet started then today’s steal, the HollyDay collection by American Crafts is the perfect one to help that happen.

HollyDay is chock-full of traditional reds and greens with a splash of modern silver. There are patterns that sparkle and will entice Holiday wonder in the youngsters as well as bring a smile to your neighbors face. (Oh and this collection is so big that you’ll have oodles of left over to scrap your holiday memories as well!)

I decided to make the tags that are included in today’s steal the main focus of this weeks card sketch.  I also split the design of the front of the card, mixing two different patterns since there are really so many different choices that I wanted to show them all! (Or a few of them anyway. ;) )

The card postings that we’ve been seeing on our Facebook fan page are fantastic. If you’d like to be eligible for the November random drawing for Monday Card Madness, all you need to do is complete any (or all!) of the Monday Card Madness sketches, post your creation to our fan page or your own personal blog, then leave a link on this blog to that creation no later than 11:59 PM MST on Friday, December 2nd, 2011.

For those of you that participated in the Holiday card swap, your cards are AMAZING! They will be heading back out to you this week.

I hope you have a great Monday!
