Mojo Monday #323

Welcome to another Mojo Monday!  Julee has created a wonderful sketch to use some twine on and that big circle is full of possibilities. 

I immediately thought of a snowflake when I saw the circle.  In case you haven't guessed, it is my favorite seasonal shape.  This one is big, bold, and front and center indeed!  I paired it with some North Pole We R Memory Keepers paper and this wonderful Merry Christmas sentiment from Merry and Bright.  A few pearls to make the snowflake stand out a bit more, a snowflake trim down the side and a rounded corner to finish things off. 

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Mojo Monday blog and also get a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples.  Should you wish more details on the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


We had a very cold weekend by West Coast standards.  Lows of -8C (17 F) overnight and highs of -2C (28 F).  Nowhere near some of the crazy temps in parts of the US right now, but trust me, it is cold for us!!  The damp cold we get here on the coast goes right to your bones.  Soccer was cancelled this weekend due to frozen fields and I was doing a happy dance when we got the news as it was just too chilly for the boys to play, ever mind us poor parents having to stand on the sidelines freezing to death!   Bonus:  the extra time allowed me to get my Christmas cards done :) 

Thanks for popping by and have a great week!

Love all the snowflakes down the side...wonderfully festive card, Marisa!

Love this one, Marisa. The snowflakes down the side are so cute and icy in the blue.

We've been cold here in the southern U.S. for about five straight days with so much yucky rain. Only up to 33 degrees all day Saturday with lots of wind. Made shopping very cold.

This is such a snowflake lovers' delight! Guess we were in the same train of thought with that theme! :-)
Great minds - lol!

Yay for games being called and yay for Christmas cards being done--hope to finish tomorrow! I LOVE these bright beautiful snowflakes!

Kristine Porter said...

I love your card! The bright, fresh colors are so pretty and I love those snowflakes!

Maureen said...

I think that snowflake should be blue for freezing! We were at -20 this weekend. It's all relative, isn't it! I am ready for Spring and it's not even officially winter yet! LOL

Beautiful bold snowflakes and paired with the papers...swoon! Gorgeous! Yes, my husband does know Noel (Noel C right? ), and I've also worked with him at a couple of biathlon events, too - inside only tasks for me :) Amazing that he's your husband's BIL; small world...As for RC and PTI tags: oh, do I want and NEED those!! They're awesome (need to figure a way around the shipping $)! Thanks so much for visiting my blog: day brightened whenever I hear from you!

This is a beautiful snowflake, Marisa! Actually all the snowflakes are very pretty, but I really love red ones! I thought it was cold here, but not what you've had. Brrr! Keep warm!

Love the red snowflake against the other colors on this. That snowflake is done so wonderfully. Definitely in my favorite cards you have done this year Marisa! Hugz!

Stay warm!!!!
