Don't begin to think that this means I'm one of those "Bah, humbug!" types who eschews Christmas. Far from it. I love everything about Christmas. And, appropriately, at Christmas snow belongs on the ground. It is the magic blanket which hides all the dead grass and makes the landscape pretty again. But Christmas is almost three months away.
A few years back I found the sweetest stamp set by Stampendous. It featured a group of penguins who clearly love the snow and everything about it. They're total winter "people". I loved the image and also the sentiments and so had to buy it, of course. The challenge at Merry Monday this week is perfect for my little stamp set and I was thrilled to be able to haul it out and use it.
I may not be ready for snow yet but the sentiment, "Take time to chase snowflakes" is something I embrace each year. I make sure I get out there to enjoy the snow with my grandsons and also with my daughter since both of us love to go cross-country skiing. I kept the card simple, making the image and that sentiment the primary focal points. Oh, of course, I added some bling, not only in the form of rhinestones, but also in the form of the Wink of Stella which you can just see under the sleigh and also in the pom-poms of the toques which the penguins are wearing.
You can see why I'd want to use this image for the challenge, right? It's not everyday that one has the perfect stamp right there.
This is entered in the Merry Monday Challenge #258.
I've also entered my card in the Christmas Card Challenges CCC22.
