Blog Hop Midway Reminder

Howdy Doody Peeps...hope you had a great weekend and your week has started well :-D I got a bit of crafting done at the weekend...THREE cards!!! {patting myself on the back} That hasn't happened in a LONG time but I just said to myself "Kerry, you're a long time dead and the house won't collapse if it hasn't been tidied for a day or three so why not do something that makes you happy?" Who am I to argue with myself rofl!!!!

This is one of the THREE cards I made. I haven't put a sentiment on it yet...the jury's still out which one I want. It's a pretty simple card...nothing fancy...well apart from the spotty scarf on Snowman #3 ;-D

Enough waffling...have a look and see what you think....

I love love LOVE this Snowman Delight image...actually I love them all...very little coloring is required which makes them super quick. As always I've printed Let It Snow onto PTI cs and colored it in with my Copics. When I was looking in the garage for all my Sizzix dies to put in the sale (see page above) I spied some pads of paper I bought in Walmart when I was home years ago. There are about 5 or 6 pads in different sized squares and rectangles but with all the same pp which is pretty smart really because all you need to do is tear a piece off, mount it on some matching cs and cutting!!!

See that smudge of red beside the tall snowman's hat? (I'm pointing this out so you know that I know I boobed and won't be saying to yourself...look, Kerry made a boob lololololol) I put the glue on the wrong part and as quick as I could wiped it away with my finger. Thought I got away with it but obviously not lol.

Close up of the smudge ;-D

And a peek at the inside. I punched a border using a Martha Stewart punch...not sure what it's called but it is a row of pine branches.....VERY cute.

Hmm, I must be doing something wrong here. I always try to avoid any household chores and I still don't have enough time to play with paper LOL. Love your card (despite the boob LOL) and the papers. I started on the blog hop last night and I like what I've seen so far, but then I have a soft spot for snowmen anyway!

Faith A said...

Fabulous card as always Kerry.
Sorry I haven't been around, but I don't miss one of your cards as I email follow. I agree about the house falling down around you, go enjoy yourself :)

Rusty said...

Love your card, love his spotty scarf and those papers are lovely!! Well done on getting 3 made!! x

Whimsey said...

Ya know, you probably didn't even have to mention the "boob" - DO YOU REALLY CALL IT THAT - it doesn't even look that noticeable in the picture...unless I'm getting old at which point I DO NOT NEED COMMENTS FROM YOU!!! :D

I love the spotty scarf, very cute; great colors. Seems like I've seen a card with similar scarf/hat colors...hmmm....???

Love all the sparkle!

Kathleen said...

Love this card, great choice of colours and papers, spotty scarf is great, couldn't make out the 'boob'.
I do love these images too, and it is a shame that they didn't come out earlier, because I bought a LOTV snowman stamp and I have made 103 cards with just 22 to go for my x-place of employement and to be quite honest it was a bit of a B----- to stamp, these images would have been much easier, so I am actually all snowmened out for this year, never want to use this stamp again.
