Mr Snowman Card and Nsync Video

Hey Everyone! I decided that whenever I post a card or project, I'll add a music video for your listening and viewing pleasure! LOL! Yesterday, my daughter and I were watching videos on YouTube and we found this Nsync video. Nsync?! Aren't you a bit too old for that, Maria? LOL! Actually, when my daughter was 8 years old, I took my daughter to see their concert and I have to admit, their live show was one of the best I've been to. I was in utter amazement that they could dance, jump around, and yet sing perfectly. They did not lip-sync at all. . .they are always live. It takes great breathing control and stamina to be able to sing and do all what they did. You have to admire them for that. Anyway, enjoy!

I finished up this card this morning. It's a 5.5 x 5.5" card but the card doesn't open up as a full card. The actual card measures 4 x 5" and is attached to the 5.5" card base. I thought it would be fun to do something different.

I think I'm going to start making cards that are not your traditional type of cards. I gotta get out of my hum-drum state of card making existence. LOL!

Seriously. . .I've been feeling a bit in a hum-drum state. Routine and monotony are the bane of my existence so to bring back a bit of "spark and excitement" into my card making life. . .I'll create stuff that are out of my norm.

Are you that way too? Just wondering if others are like me. I have a tendency to become bored really quickly and I constantly have to come up with different projects. . .even life projects to get me going.

Did you know . .. my kids and family call me the "project queen". LOL! Everything is a project to me. . .i.e., project garage organization, the garden project, restaurant exploration project, project craft room reorganization. LOL!! You laugh! It's true. Everything has to be a major event. . .with a goal, a starting point, planning, outcome, result. How weird is that?

Whenever I start a project, my family goes "oh, no!". . .here she goes again and watch her get bored and not finish it up! LOL!

Anyway, enough with my yip-yapping. . .now to my card. I colored my card with my Copic Markers and added a bit of SU Crystal Effects to part of the image, punched some snowflakes with my Marvy snowflake punch and attached the 4 x 5" card on to the 5.5 x 5.5" card panel. That's it!!

Wow Maria! Another awesome card! I wish that I could color in my images half as well as you! I really need to practice more... and buy more Copics. Beautiful! I love the rounded corners (i'm a rounded corner freak!) and the layers... the buttons add great dimension. A+++ as always!
