Seasons Greetings for Merry Monday

It's Merry Monday time again.

The funlovin', talented Lori is our hostess this week.


Usually I go pretty traditional, but it was a lot of fun to think outside the box.


I had stamped this image from There She Goes Clear Stamps some time ago.

I chose a couple of my favorite non-Christmas colors
and went to work with my Blendabilities.

I used a little Flower Soft and Dazzling Details to dress up this cool couple.

Since I used some snippets for the snowflake border and actual design piece,
I'm off to visit Pixies Snippet Playground.

The Design Team has created some awesome inspiration for you.
Hope you'll join the fun, create a Christmas card
with non-traditional colors, and join us at 

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!
