Mojo Monday #474

 photo Mojo474picB.jpg 

It was a gloomy, rainy day here when I created this card, and after looking at the calendar, I was reminded that Christmas is quickly approaching!! Sorry....I said the "C" word!!   With that on the brain, I continued on my Christmas card binge.

Love this shimmer paper from the dollar store -- how did we survive without them??!!  Snowflakes are my favorite winter "shape/accessory" for cards so you didn't have to twist my arm at all for me to bust out a snowflake die.  A sparkly, silver snowflake paired with red and blue made my heart sing.

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also 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.


This weekend was also a bit on the stressful side as I have quickly come to realize that teaching my son to drive is a very different experience than it was teaching my daughter to drive!  Oh my....several white knuckle moments in one outing (he drove us to Costco), and my daughter who was sitting in the back seat was a bit on the pasty white side too!  Not for the faint of heart LOL!

Love your take on this week's sketch. The silver and grey colors with a bit of red are striking. Love hoe you repeated the snowflake motif too. A lovely card I'd like to CASE.

So clever to add the snowflake to the word die cut, and the tiny heart is just adorable!
