Mojo Monday #484

Last chance to sneak in a heart card {grin} and I took the sketch very literally once again.

Love this fun heart paper by Bella Boulevard, and decided to go with more of a blue than a pink theme.  I rarely use navy so it was fun to play with it :)   Cut out the "XO" from my PTI border die, and used Verve's Heart Quartet Die set for the hearts.   It needed a little something so I added a button.  Will most likely use it for my hubby or my son's Valentine's Day card.

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.

We had quite the week weather-wise!!  Seven inches of snow Friday night which made for some very heavy shoveling on Saturday morning!  Took me a whole hour to shovel our driveway as the snow was not light!!  Then two more inches of snow on Monday (nice and light - yeah!!) followed by a glorious, sunny day on Tuesday, snow and freezing rain on Wednesday and then heavy rain on Thursday and Friday.  Needless to say, Vancouver has had it with snow this year as we are not set up for the stuff!   The freezing rain added a whole other dimension and some very hazardous conditions!  Our city's schools were closed for three days this wee - the first time in 20 years!   And our cat was far from impressed LOL!

Further inland they had almost three feet of snow and people were stuck in their homes as we do not have the snow plowing equipment needed to deal with the stuff, never mind three feet of it!  You couldn't find salt anywhere.  It has been the coldest and snowiest winter I remember.  We have had large snowfalls before, but the snow is usually done within a few days as it warms up and rains. Not this time!  We had snow and then cold temps to keep it around for some time.

I personally love the brightness the snow brings and seeing blue skies, sunshine and white everywhere just makes me happy as it sure beats grey skies and rain all the time.  However,  navigating the roads is not always a pleasant experience!  Some good memories to talk about for years to come!

Oh, Marisa, what a beautiful and sweet card! I love this sketch and really love how you've used it. I just got the heart die and look forward to using it myself. Wow, you live in a beautiful place. I took a "tour" on the internet to see the beauty, and it's amazing you've had so much snow being so close to the coast. Stay warm and cozy, and the cat will eventually warm up! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
