Merry Monday #76 and a FUN Day

Hi Everybody,

there were 5 hours left to make a snowman card for Merry Monday when I checked this morning - lets get started!


I used my brand new Sizzix embossing folder, some Washi tape on the sides and a stamp from Fiskars.


The snowman is from Rubber soul. I heat embossed it and paper pieced it and propped it up on foam tape. Some twine to finish it. Really quick - just my kind of card!

I am also linking this up with this weeks Simon Says challenge - Anything goes


--X--

And guess where my new embossing folder is coming from?
I went to the Scrapbook Expo yesterday with my sister and some of my brand new crafting friends:


Here are we - from left to right: Ren-Yi from Little Tangles, me, Charlene also from Little Tangles, my sister and Elke - not sure if she has a blog. See how color coordinated we are - we are almost forming a rainbow!

We shopped 'till we dropped - I could barely carry my bag in the end - my credit card company actually called my husband - too much activity in one day, LOL!!!!!

Here is another picture of Ren-Yi - deciding which stamp set to get at Rubber Necker....



We all got their stamps - they are just amazing! You'll see a picture of one soon - I already know what I will make!

A really quick card indeed. I like that snowman stamp with the way you are looking down on him. hugs Mrs A.

Love this card Cornelia, the top view of the snowman is so cute! You found the embossing folder I love too! The washi tape on the sides looks fabulous, great idea. Looks like you had a lot of fun shopping :) Cathy x

Oh, es hört sich an, als hättet ihr gestern viel Spass gehabt! Schade, dass ich nicht mitkommen konnte! Von Rubbernecker habe ich letztes Jahr bei der Convention in Springfield auch einiges gekauft. Ich finde es toll, dass sie nicht so teuer sind und schöne Motive haben sie auch. Bin gespannt, welche du gewählt hast und was du damit machen wirst!

What a great snowman card! The texture of the falling snow and the perspective of your snowman is awesome. Love it! Looks like you got lots of shopping done at the Expo. I did a bit, just tried to keep myself in check though and not get carried away....probably would have been harder to do if we were shopping together!

Die Schneemannkarte ist ja irre!!! Vor allem: einen Schneemann von oben: das finde ich genial.

Deine Karte ist wieder mal Tip Top. So schön frisch. Brrrrr ...bei uns ist es seit gestern eiskalt, ....ich hüpfe dann gleich weiter auf die nächste Seite :)
