Merry Monday Snowmen

I didnt get a chance to play along with last weeks Merry Monday challenge so I made sure to make time for it today. A very special birthday wish to Torico, who has been the featured  designer at Merry Monday this past month, and who is also offering up a prize for this challenge!

Since we got 5" of new snow yesterday and its snowing again today I decided to use one of my favorite sets, Flaky Friends. I love snowmen, they are just so happy and fun! Because the snow here in Alaska tends to be very dry  we dont get a chance to make snowmen very often so I buy snowmen stamps and snowmen decorations for the house to make up for it :0)

I went into my retired DSP stash for this paper. The Blushing Bride(current In Color) isnt a color I normally use, I cant stand the color pink, but I wanted to use some of this paper up and went a bit outside of my comfort zone to do it. I compensated for it by using the Real red as an accent color---Real Red is much more my style and what I tend to gravitate too when it comes to Christmas. When my daughter came home from school I showed her the card and the first thing she said was "you used pink?" LOL

I hope that wherever you are you had a good Monday!
