Make it Monday!

What an exciting weekend...it was my husband's birthday, I took the girls to see  'The Nutcracker' and we saw some snow!!!  Not here, of course, but in Iowa there was a nice little dusting.  I'd forgotten how pretty is it!!! 

But now I'm home and trying to catch up on 20 things at once, lol! 

Things tend to get a little crazy this time of year but hopefully you will find time to create something with paper...and if you do, then you should link it up at Make it Monday!  It's always an open challenge, so long as you use paper!!!! 

This week you can win a fabulous prize from one of my favorite sponsors, Bugaboo!!!


Here is my creation, using the great background Tree Bench:




And my POTW is from Lucy



Isn't she fantastic?  Love it!

Thank you so much for popping by and don't forget to link up with us at Make it Monday this week!!!!

There you go teasing me again with that snow! The only thing today is wind. Which is why I'm up at stupid o'clock in the morning. Lovely Christmas lights bashing against the side of the house. Snow would have padded that!!
I'm a wee bit late on making rounds, but wanted to pop in and say I love your MIM card and your choice for the POTW.
hugs again,
Lisa xx

Sandy said...

Me too, I feel like the white rabbit saying I'm late, I'm late!!!
Love your fab card, a great scene and love that snow. It has been so hot here lately that dusting (if we ever had snow, LOL) wouldn't even have made if part way to ground level!
Love your sweer POTW - gorgeous!
Hugs, Sandy
