Winter Wishes..CR84FN5..WMSC25 48

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, November 28, 2010 @ 8:06 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all having a great weekend! Were you out and about shopping on Black Friday? I'm not one for crowds - I like my personal space - it sort of irritates me to get elbowed, nudged or my ankles bumped by a baby stroller so no shopping for me on Friday. I prefer Cyber Monday myself - now that is my sort of shopping - hanging out in the comforts of my home while shopping :) I made this card to share today:
I love the lil' snowman image from Waltzingmouse Sewing Box - Christmas so I inked him up, colored the hat and highlighted the edges with the Copic Markers listed below then using a sharp scissors to trim around the edges. For color inspiration, I referred to the CR84FN5 challenge which has been extended due to the Thanksgiving Day holiday. For COMPLETE details, please click HERE. I would love to see what you create with this fun color combo!
and for sketch inspiration, I joined in the fun with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

I popped the lil' guy up with a few foam adhesive squares on a snowflake embossed label cut using a S4-161 Labels One die template, smudged on white chalk ink to highlight the embossed background then stitched to a frame cut using a S4-295 Lacey Square die template using a whimsical sort of stitch.
What do you think of the shimmery snowflake? It is a pre-cut foam snowflake that I applied some glue to then sprinkled on some Melissa Frances Mica flakes.

Thanks so much for looking! Hope you enjoy your day/night wherever you may be! Be Sweet :)
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sewing Box - Christmas
Die Templates and Machine: Spellbinders™Nestabilities® S4-295 Lacey Squares, S4-161 Labels One, GC-001 Grand Calibur

You might think I'm crazy but I live for big shopping days like Black Friday! I was out and about by 5am on Friday and didn't return home until around 4pm!!! So many bargins and so little time! Whooohoo!!
BTW, I adore this card! Mona, you are my favorite designer!

Carlie said...

Hi Mona, hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend! Shopping is not my big thing either, so I'm content to watch on the sidelines and maybe do some online ordering on Monday! I really want Santa to bring me your talent; you have so much, I think you could share just s bit with me!!!! This card is so gorgeous and I'm a sucker for snowflakes so this has to be my recent favorite of yours! Just amazing stuff!

Mona, I'm like you, I have no interest in dealing with those big shopping crowds! Much nicer to just order it and wait for the UPS guy to arrive!!!! Now, if there was a store selling your creations like this beautiful card, I'd put on my camos and boots and get up early to be first in line!!!

Hi Mona! I'm with you on staying away from the malls on black friday! Way to many people and the discounts are rarely worth the hassle! Cyber Monday is much easier! I love your card sooooo much! That snowman is so dear! I love the layout and the colors too! Fabulous as usual!

This card is so super cute. It instantly made me want to snuggle up with a hot cocoa and a warm blanket. :) Oh, I could throw a couple of warm kitties in there too - we just adopted two 6 month olds from Petsmart today. :)

Such a cute snowman.. And your card is just so cute I love it. I am with you no black friday shopping for me! I really don't have that much to buy! Not worth all the crowds like you said.

Hope you have a happy day! Hugs, Linda

I love this card! I'm such a fan of that lacey square die and I love how you layered it with the embossed panel and the sweet snowman! Gorgeous design as usual! Our entire holiday shopping season sounds like your Black Friday! I hate shopping! So stressful!

Great snowflake and snowman theme! The papers you used coordinate so well and I love your colors you picked for your challenge! This is such a sweet adorable card!

JennyGerber said...

Mona, your cards are always so inspiring! I'm gonna have to "borrow" a few of your ideas here! My favorite part is the neat meandering stitching! I reminds me of patterns in the ice after skating! It looks like most aren't into the Black Friday crowds but I really don't mind it! I always find some great bargins as long as I plan ahead!

Gale Evans said...

So adorable, Mona! What a beautiful card!

Meredith said...

LOVE that snowflake - I wish I could find such beautiful glitter here, but I can barely find Melissa Frances paper!!!

I just ADORE your snowflake DP - my obsession is red and white with snowflakes!!

Andrea M said...

Love this sweet little snowman and the awesome, whimsical stitching around him! It's so perfect - *sigh* even your whimsically stitched borders are perfect. Oh, to have an ounce of your creativity :) This card highlights your gorgeous challenge colors perfectly too!
I'm TOTALLY with you - no Black Friday for me, thank you! I've no desire to see that side of humanity at that hour in the morning- HA!!!!! Guess it's just for the brave of heart.... I'll stick to digital browsing as well! Have a goodie!
