Hello Sunshine!!

Welcome to Sunshine Monday. How was your weekend? I spent the weekend getting caught up on some rest! It's that wonderful time of the year when the allergies kick it and I have yet another sinus infection. Oh well, I would still rather muddle through with a little sinus infection then be freezing cold!
Todays card is for Sunshine Monday, of course, and also for the sketch challenge over at Midnight Madness. Their sketches are always so much fun and a real challenge! Here is this weeks sketch:

















And here is my card- this week I made a winter scene and used the stamp from Sunshine & Giggles called Hang On!


All may dp is scraps I had left over from last year but I love this paper! Cardstock is from bazzil, snowflake charm is from making memories and I used my cuttlebug snowflake folder on the white cardstock.
Doesn't this look like fun! I grew up in northern NY so I'm quite familiar with this scene, hehe. One of these winters I think we'll have to take Jordan to visit his grandparents to see what a real winter is like! We're lucky if we get one snowfall a winter and it never lasts more than a few hours.
Be sure to check out the other Giggle Girls to see what they have in store for ya!
