Warm Hello with Merry Monday

I am feeling like a rebel this morning.  At least as much of a rebel as I ever get...and that ain't much!!??  Oh, look, I just used "ain't" - that's two acts of rebellion this morning.  So what have I done?  Today's Splitcoast Color Challenge specifically says "It's a bright color trio and definitely will lend itself to spring cards" but I made a winter card.  Ooooh!!

Actually, I'm sure it has something to do with the weather.  I love winter.  I love snow.  March is supposed to be Colorado's snowiest month.  But it's been high to mid-60s this week.  I got my flip-flops out.  That's just wrong...so I made a snowman!

I used the Merry Monday sketch, but flipped sideways.

I am still struggling with getting clear pictures onBblogger - and, I have read other bloggers that recently have felt the same way.  I'm thinking something changed in Blogger, I just haven't researched it yet.  If you click on the photo - it will get bigger and clearer!!

  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Warm Hello
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade and Sunny Garden dsp

This is a beautiful, beautiful card!!! Such great colors together, and that snowman image is spectacular!! I love how you included such a nice sentiment in that sweet heart with a bow. And the snowflakes just add the perfect touch.
