Mojo Monday #221

I have a Mojo Monday #221 card to show for the current challenge then I will share a few photos from my recent adventures up at Mt Washington.

I went with a square card for this challenge, I have made a few of these smaller cards over the last little while and like them.

Supplies: Natural Ivory and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, Hero Arts-Silhouette Grass, TPC-Card Making Thank you, misc punches, ribbons, Recollections Pearls.

My husband and I try to get up to Mt Washington at least once a winter for a little snowshoeing. We rent a condo down in Comox for an evening and treat the trip like a mini vacation. We had two wonderful days of snowshoeing.

The first day it was overcast and the snow was icy from a recent rain however the weather was nice and we were lucky to feed the Whiskey Jacks. It is usually touch and go whether we see these little guys but we always carry trail mix with us just for them. They love the large raw cashews, almonds and peanuts but they seems to always grab the large plump raisins first and tend to toss away the pumpkin and sunflower seeds. This little guy appears to be glaring at me for the poor selection offered.

The second day was beautiful and sunny but windy, there was a nice amount of fresh snow overnight. We were there early enough to break trail the whole time and we spend most of out time off trail and in the back country.

I think I took the most pictures ever this trip, this area is so pretty.



  1. Such a warm and friendly card, Sis, this one will get snapped up if you show it around! You have such a way with neutrals - and I have been making some of the smaller square cards too for a change.

  4. Love the card Nina and love the pics of Mt Washington!! We are in full summer here in Australia which isn't a bad thing but where I live, we don't get snow and I have never even been in snow. Hopefully we will remedy that fact one day and visit a place as nice as Mt Washington. Vikki
