HOO HOO...WITH MAKE IT MONDAY



Hello Everyone....

Can you believe  it is Monday already...now for me that should not make much difference as I work 7 days, but the thought of MONDAY means back to work....and work is a little more phyisical than the weekend....but, cannot complain as I always have MAKE IT MONDAY  to look forward to....and this week we are so lucky to have those gorgeous whimsical images to play with from MELJENS DESIGNS 

[YAY!!! the mouse is popping]

For my card this week I was lucky to get to play with this cutie...

Cosy Winter Owl 



My colouring with my pencils has given him a bit of a scowl..lol..but who wouldn't be sitting in a snowy tree....



A close up...his fur trim was made using another cotton ball...



And the side view...papers from my stash and Magnolia snowflakes...LOTV sentiment and new ribbon from our emporium, when I only went in to get a new bathroom plug!!!

From all the fabulous entires last week, I managed to pick a favourite that kept jumping out at me and here it is from #180 MANDY 



A gorgeous CAS card...just perfect Mandy...Thanks for sharing at Make it Monday..

Wonderful Chrissy, it's actually raining here today but with our hot temps lately that snow would have melted!!! Your owl is fab and love the addition of the "fur" trim too.

Fun card- love the owl and your pencil coloring is amazing. We are not getting much snow in Chicagoland this year- your card makes me think of how pretty the snow is when it is falling..... Love your POTW

Michelle said...

Awww Chrissy he is just adorable! I reckon he looks pretty happy enough for someone who has their bum stuck in the snow,lol. Love this little wintery scene. Given the heat wave we are having at the moment (went just over 40 yesterday and almost the same today.

Your POTW is a beauty.
