Oh Snap!....

Hi everyone and TGIF! I want to share with you a card I made for the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Trend Watch, and while I'm at it, I'm going to enter this card for the Drunken Stampers challenge #108: Fire and Ice.

The inside:

Here are the challenges/inspiration pictures:

Just imagine, it's Christmas morning, and sweet little Fido wakes up to find Santa has left a bunch of presents under the tree for him: a new bone, a fire hydrant, and what could be in the wrapped gift? A chew toy? A ball? A stuffed animal? He's going to have to open it to find out! LOL! And the moment is captured forever in a poloroid picture!

Lots of paper piecing and fussy cutting going on here. That present is actually part of the cake from Hullabaloo. I stamped and cut it out, cutting the icing apart from the cake part, flipping it over, and glued it back on. Now it looks like a present with a fancy lid! Woo hoo!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you have a very crafty weekend! Stamp on my friends, stamp on!

Chris ☺
