Merry Monday #44 and H2H Snow week

Wow - it seems like it's been a LONG time since I've played along with a Heart to Heart Challenge. Even if I count the ones where I play along, but forget to post my card in time.
So, I'm starting on a new foot in January! :)

And, as it turns out I {heart} the Merry  Monday colors this week and I thought it complemented the H2H snow challenge splendidly. (PLUS I love blues and red together in just about any setting.)

H2H: This week's theme is "Snow Much Fun!" 

I'm almost as excited about the picture of my card as I am about the card itself (which I was quite happy with). I have never been a stellar photographer and even worse at interpreting light and figuring out how to avoid shadows, etc. Since Mr. Sun has been avoiding our neck of the woods like the plague the last few weeks, I needed an indoor lighting solution!   I'd LOVE to brag and say I've been experimenting with lighting and found a solution, but the truth is, I found a solution all right - but it was a happy accident! You know what they say - even a blind squirrel can find a nut every now and then.

Here is my CTMH card using the "Flakey Friends" stamp set:

I pulled out snowflake patterned paper from my "Wonderland" kit and the Pacifica colored patterned paper from my remains of "Fanfare". The red button and twine is CTMH, as well as the red floss I hand-stitched with. (I was feeling really ambitious earlier this week.) The red bling (which I'm loving) is Doodlebug Designs.

Thank you for visiting! Hope you have a wonderful weekend headed your way! I'm getting an "unexpected" visit from a sister and her litter. Looking much forward to it! We'll be crafting all weekend - hopefully I will have posts of our progress up soon.
