Suggestive Sunday #3 and My Paper World 's



Hello everybody and how is the weather in your neighborhood? We are still under a winter storm advisory and it is a mess out there! From what I gather, we are supposed to get up to 10 inches of snow! Schools are closed everywhere and today of all days our snow blower "died"!!! I think sometimes I have to laugh to avoid crying. OK...enough of the mundane, I'm done with my "pity party" ! lol

I made this card for Allison's(Stampin When I can) Suggestive Sunday #3 and Nicola's(My Paper World) Sketch #3. Allison's Suggestive Sunday cards are to be kid friendly...I hope a kid would like this. Anyhow... while making this card for My Paper World #3, I thought that it could serve two purposes!!! It's nice when you can get one card to serve two different challenges. I also altered one of my mail boxes I brought from Target. I'm still adjusting to altering items. I think I'd rather color because it takes me forever to alter stuff! Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your evening.

Yes, a kid would love that card! That little monkey is fantastic, and he makes me smile! Love the bling! The mailbox is GREAT! Good job!

I'm in IL, and I'm so ready for Spring. This is the worst winter we've had in YEARS! At this point, I would actually enjoy seeing the sun! It's getting downright depressing, don't you think? I guess we just need to CRAFT more!

Oh, so you've been monkeying around huh??? Too cute Risa. Happy to see that you started with those little mail boxes. It's adorable! You sound as though you have about as much fun at altering as I do. NOT!!! I keep thinking I'll try something else, but I still can't get the hang of it and don't like to get my fingers messy.

Chris said...

Love what you have been creating though, that mailbox is just amazing :D
