Mygrafico Inspirational Monday



It a Mygrafico challenge ~ Anything goes!.  Do come and join us... you could win a fantastic Mygrafico prize.   This week the team got to chose any set to use so there's lots of great inspiration from us all.... Pop over to the blog and take a look.

I chose to use this set from Alexsma Designs.  


 I paired up one of the frames with some Hero Arts stamps. I printed the frame three times... one for the base, one for the layered middle portion and one to cut out the leaves.  I stamped the Hero Arts snowman and fussy cut it.  Coloured with Copics, added Stickles and Glossy Accents.  I added Kindyglitz to the snowflakes along the top.  The sentiment is from the same Hero Arts set as the snowman.  

Just over two weeks till Christmas !!!!!!  Yikes!!!!!   hope your plans are going well.   I'm almost sorted.  Getting the Christmas tree this weekend.   We always have a real tree so can't have it too soon.  My parents arrive on Saturday and next week is our neighbourhood party on Wed evening.  Plus my works lunch on Thursday.  Thank goodness I finish work on the 21st and am off till the 7th Jan.  So looking forward to the break!

Hope your week is good and you don't get too stressed.
