Paper Smooches and CASual Fridays
Paper Smooches has an additional challenge going on as part of their anniversary celebrations. The theme is fun and cute - just the right thing for me! You can win cool new acrylic blocs - never can have to many of those, right?
So I started to play. I just love interactive cards. I also got inspiration from CASual Fridays - the theme is: not an A2 card. I pulled out my cute Paper Smooches set Zoo Crew and here we go - my card - it measures 4x6 :
I first punched the circle. Then I masked a strip of on the front of the card and stamped the leaves and sponged over them. I stamped the sentiment onto the circle.
Then I put some eyelets in the card on top and two in the circle and threaded twine through it.
I stamped the crocodile on the inside of the card - I drew the opening with a pencil to know where to place it.
I used Inktense pencils to color the leaves and the crocodile. I doubled up the lid, to hide the back of the eyelids and string. Looks better that way!
Pull on the string and the "lid" opens up!
I am also submitting this card to Less is More - Masculine card - I associate alligators with males.....and I am planning to send this card to a little boy!
Guess what - its snowing again in New Jersey!!! We have a record winter. If it would not get warm in between and melting some of the snow away I wouldn't know where to put it anymore. As it is its difficult to get it on top of the pile I have next to my driveway....Just to show you, I put an arrow to the top of the pile - pretty high, hu?!
And here is my daughter's car (she is in college right now and does not need it....)
And here from the internet:
Enjoy the snow
and have a great day!
