Merry Monday #237 {Shimmer and Sparkle}~ JOY

 Well, March is coming in all snowy and miserable.  Very slippery out there on the roads today, makes a gal happy to be home safe and sound in her little house.   So with the weather we are having I decided I should play along at Merry Monday Blog where it's all about Christmas, with some sparkle, shimmer, and shine.    This card uses a lot of sparkle paper, to which I even cut out the little "o" in joy to match the background.  I also punched out a few snowflakes from glitter paper and place them around the images.  I then added some mica flakes to the snow mounds on the bottom to give it some shimmer.  I used the Festival of trees and Welcome Christmas from stampin up.  
This little rascal squirrel is back on the bird feeder even with the snow.  I caught him in the act of leaping, and apparently he was getting pretty confident in his abilities for the last picture he is hanging upside down munching on the bird seed.   What a character.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.   Take time to browse around and check out my other cards.  I even posted a video yesterday of the pop box.  
Hope you will sign up and follow me.  That would be swell.
Keep Stamping 😊 Keep Smiling


  1. Your card is very pretty, but THAT SQUIRREL!!! What a hoot! We are having temps in the 60s and 70s....very weird. I wish we had some of your snow!!

  2. Just love your sparkly card, PJ! So fun with the trio of trees & Joy banner! We had snow today too - guess that means March came in like Santa, rather than a lion or lamb! What an acrobatic squirrel - they have a lot of fun climbing my apple trees - they have cleaned off all the frozen apples from the high branches.

  3. Great job on your sparkly card! I like the glitter paper, the banner and trees really make it stand out. Great pictures of the squirrel!

  4. Loving the sparkly card with the blue glitter paper and the mica flakes. Great idea cutting out the O's centre to showcase the glitter paper underneath. :)

  5. Wonderful festive card, Thank you for joining us for Merry Monday.
