Merry Monday and Mojo Monday

Happy Snow Day (again!)!  I didn't really want this snow day.  We are over our days and now they are taking from other vacation days.  This one will probably take away our Friday before Memorial Day, which is the day I go shopping at the local nurseries for my flowers.  But it was only 1 degree this morning and the wind chill was -25 degrees, so it was necessary.  So since I was home, I went to my craft room.  I made two cards, but I'll share one today and one tomorrow.
This one I love!  I love the Merry Monday Challenges and really want to play along more often to get some cards done.  This week their challenge is to use ornaments.  I've have these tag dies from MFT for a while and I purchased them because they look like ornaments to me.  I die cut them out of decorative paper and then just the tops from foil tape paper for the top of the ornament.  Love it! 
 
I'm also playing along with the Mojo Monday challenge.  They've changed up their round or square challenge (I don't like making round cards!) to tall and skinny!  This I like!  My card is 3.5" x 5.5" so it still fits into an A-2 envelope (but who cares if you have an envelope maker, right?), but it's so cute being so skinny!
 
Thanks for stopping in today!  Hopefully I'll be at work tomorrow!
