Silly Me!

Silly Me  .....

I know it's Christmas Eve as I'm tracking Santa on my laptop but I absolutely forgot it was Sunday and time for the challenge at:

Pixie's Snippets Playground Weeks 313 & 314

So here's a quick card made with the inside of an envelope, a piece of washi tape and some small snippets of card.

Made before I joined Parsnip for a tipple so it's not by mistake that the background is stuck on wonky and I did stamp the sentiment twice on purpose to give a shadow. 

Looking at it now I wish I'd put on a pair of googly eyes though ....


Happy Christmas Eve!

Beautiful card, Barb. I prefer it without googly eyes. Merry Christmas, my friend.

This is just adorable...even without the google eyes! What a clever idea to use an inside of the envelope as your background for this bowler hat & stache. Love the imaginative use of the snippets & your creative design. TFS, Hugs & Merry Christmas too.

What a fun card this is Barb! I like it as it is - without the eyes. It adds an air of 'The Invisible Man' to it - and so clever to use the inside of an envelope. I ought to give that one a try - although I have kept a gift card which came with a magnum of Prosecco to upcycle! Who ever thought we'd get through a whole magnum though?! We'll give it a try sometime when we have a day spare to recover!

Hugs

Linby said...

oh I love this and such great use of all the items. I remember when I first began in the 90s people used envelope liners, but I never get any!

Darnell said...

It's not too late, Barb! Please put googly eyes on him and repost it this coming Sunday as your Happy New Year card, haha! The idea karacks me up, but then it doesn't take much to make me giggle, even without Parsnips tipples!! And if I didn't say, I love the card! Happy New Year Hugs! Darnell

Can't believe I have only just caught up with this card which btw is fab. Just goes to show that we don't need all that fancy paper and stuff we must have at any cost. Crafting on a budget that's my motto for 2018. Hugs Mrs A.

Veerle said...

Yes googly eyes would definitely have added to the fun Barb. Your card looks great.

Hi Barb, I don't know where the time went. this is a great fun card. I'm sure Mr Mojo will be back soon. To be honest that's why I like doing a review in January, it just seems to help me get back in the mood to start the New Year. Pleased you liked my tax disc card and hope you find yours, they are fun to play with. Happy creative week, Angela xXx
