Brrr! So cold but SO PRETTY!

Happy Monday All!
Here we are in the last full week of January ... where is the time going?

Monday's can be GOOD
or BAD!  Depending on how you approach it!
I like to approach my Monday's (when possible)
by joining in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.
Like I have today . . .


Here is the Mojo Monday sketch I worked from ...


Now I must admit, here in Ohio we've been experiencing
a pretty mild winter so far.  A few inches of snow but not enough
to even get the snow blower fired up for ... just some simple shoveling.

BUT, I have a hunch February & March might be a
different story so I went with a Wintry/Snowy theme.  The image I have used came from the internet ... Pinterest to be precise!  I love that option for those times when I can't seem to find the stamp or digi I'm wanting to focus on.

My circle panel comes from the Yvonne Creations 'Holly Jolly Nesting Frame'.  The portion I cut off on the side I used to adorn the corners.

My sentiment is by Elizabeth Craft called 'Brrr'.

I wanted to use the same gray/blue card stock for the panel behind my focus image but need to do something to make it 'stand out'.  So I simply used a white gelly roll pen & a ruler to create the lines then went back and added the dots to create a border on the panel.  Perfect!  That's exactly what it needed.

This winter time creation could be used for a variety of occasions I think.  From a simple note card to a winter time birthday.
