Merry Monday #101

Happy Monday all!

 I know a lot of you are seeing many signs of Spring, but we still have a lot of snow here.  And by a lot of snow, I mean it :)  And it's been cold and dreary again.

This is our backyard facing our garage, as you can see the snow is basically still up to our knees.  Actually that isn't obvious by the photo - but trust me it is :)

(please don't judge, we just moved in before Winter arrived and of course hadn't been able to do anything to our new yard.  Any guesses to what we will be busy with this Summer??)

With that said, welcome to another week at Merry Monday, where we all get a head start on our Christmas cards.

This week, Karren has chosen the theme of using only grey, red, and white:



Perhaps I should have used more grey than what actually made it onto my card, but I wanted to keep this one simple.  I try to challenge myself on a weekly basis of doing different styles.  As you can see, this week I went with CAS :)

And jingle bells, I love jingle bells :)

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Studio G sentiment
Inks: Memento Rhubarb Stalk
Cardstock: Bazzill
Bits/Bobs: Christmas tree ornament, Celebrate It jingle bells, American Crafts jute



Thanks for the visit - cheers!!

Beautiful card Deanne, your snowflake is gorgeous.

I love fresh fallen snow when it covers everything in a crisp blanket of sparkling white. After that it is time for it to go. The good thing is it isn't hurting your Christmas card mojo. You've created a beautiful sparkling snowflake card. Hope Spring sunshine comes for you soon.

What a glorious glittered snowflake Deanne. Such a perfect centre piece.
Love the wee wisp of twine too. Lovely.

Karren said...

Pretty card! I like all the bling! I know is a post from a while ago...but I know what you mean about all the snow. In my area today, we are finally seeing sunshine! It has been a while...hope it dries up all the MUD that we have in our yard.
