Merry Monday Snow Family

It's Merry Monday Time.  This week is a theme week and the theme is



I love snowmen and I have quite a few.  I decided to use one of Torico's digital images this time.


Isn't this the cutest snow family?

I was able to incorporate some other challenges with this card.

Freshly Made Sketches had this fantastic sketch by Jennifer.  I rarely get a chance to play with this challenge and I'm so glad I could use it this week.  I flipped it and used the snowflake instead of a button.

ColourQ has some really good colors for Christmas this week.  I wasn't sure about the two shades of green and don't have Glorious Green.  I substituted Gumball Green, which I think is pretty close.  And I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like the colors together.


Come join us at Merry Monday and get the jump on that Christmas card stash.  Check out the other DT cards.  Prepare to be amazed!

Love those snowmen. I have a few snowmen stamps as well so which to use? The two greens worked well together and it made a nice change from snowmen with red hats!
