I wanna Build One, or More....

I do, I really really do wanna build a snowman/woman.
Snowman Holiday Lineup

I'm hot, I'm cold, I'm hot, I'm cold
and NO, it's not menopause..yet..

I don't know...
I think the roller coaster weather has finally gone to my brain.
30 degrees one day, 70 the next.
Umbrella, Shovel, Wind breaker and Heavy Jacket all by the door just incase!
It really needs to make its mind up because I'm putting the tree up in 3 days and it ought to feel like winter!
Oh well, 
if mother nature can't make up her mind, at least they know what's going on over at
Yea they do...

Here's my Tri-fold shutter card opened up
Everything colored with Copics
and you'll be proud to note, that from reading so many other blogs,
I was inspired to use my scraps, so everything on here (except the card base) is from my completely and totally overflowing, unorganized, hodgepodge of whatnots and so forths!!  
YEAH ME!!!  
Even if you can't tell I even put a dent in it...ah well.  

Stampin' Up Snow Much Fun Set
I even recycled cardboard and made a corrugated snowflake....
I'm really trying to take all the information I'm learning from everyone's blog and incorporating it as well.  Not sure why I waited so long to to try this.

 I didn't want to stamp anymore when I got to this point in the card
so I just cut letters out of the background DP and popped a foam dot behind it and called it done.
Well, that's it for me on this card.
So glad you stopped in..
Let me know you were here and I'll swing over and see what cool things you've been up to!

Hugs and Happy Stamping as always,
Lisa xx

So, have had my pc set to look at this post ALL DAY! Much better than the snow outside my window. I mean, it's sparkly like yours, but somehow, I love yours so much more.

Those bifold cards are super amazing. Are you SURE you don't wanna move to NY? I really could use a lesson!

Margaret said...

If all of my scrappy cards looked like this, my box would be empty in no time!! The snowmen are all so awesome and everything really goes together so well! I love the folds on this card too! Definitely qualifies as a 'lumpy' card ;)

We have the same weather issues here. I'm running out of space in our closets with both summer and winter clothes in them...

Shelby said...

Dory...this is absolutely marvelous! Love love the rich colors and your coloring is great! And hush...warm weather rules and if snows again in this next couple of days, it's all of your fault because you've jinxed us all!!!
