Merry Monday 131

DSCF5809

Happy Monday, peeps!  I had a whirlwind weekend, on the road here and there and I am beat this morning!  But I did manage to get my Merry Monday card created….only one more week before I say goodbye to my MM teammates, sniff!  Lori’s challenge should get your mojo going:

I have to admit I was a wee bit stumped, but I remembered some Cosmo Cricket papers I had from a long time ago, and a matching stamp set.  The little snowmen are on a field of Blushing Bride…not a typical Christmas card color, so I went to work:

I was originally only going to stamp the snowman, but he looked lonely, so I stamped a green penguin (LOL!), gave them a pieced hat & scarf and set them down on a snowy hill!

I added a little “joy” banner stamped in Real Red with some Soft Sky shading, and the final sentiment was from a retired SU set called Jolly Old St Nick!

Just a few fall photos from around my yard:
