It's a theme challenge this week over at Merry Monday.
Here's my shaker card with this theme for the week:
This is definitely the time to try one of these cards that takes just a little extra time to assemble. I was much more at ease trying this now than when I'm in my crafting madness around the holidays. My patience was better, and what a fitting project for the last day of winter today.
I used some spring products from Stampin' Up! on my card, including Sycamore Street Sale-a-Bration DSP and the tag was cut from the Sent with Love bundle. I stamped my snowman from the set Tags til Christmas, and embossed one side with the Northern Flurries embossing folder. The colors are fresh and bright, much like Lesley's inspiration card. I used Island Indigo, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze...the combination sounds like a tropical vacation for my snowman!
Of course I still got annoyed by the static that my little mica flakes have... try as hard as you can, at least one flake will stick somewhere you don't want it to be when you go to take a photo... oh well, my snowman will forgive me!
OH, and LOOK WHO IS 4 YEARS OLD TODAY...
Happy birthday, to my canine craft buddy!
Enjoy the challenge this week! Happy stamping!
