Merry Monday #164

I have a really quick post tonight!  I’ve been working on several different projects this week, but had to stop what I was doing to make this card for Merry Monday #164!  I worked on this card all day today!!  I cut the paper wrong a couple of times, and couldn’t make some key decisions:(  I’m still iffy on a couple of things, but here we go! 🙂

164Hmmm, I was having trouble with “funky hats”, but I got the hat part right;)

abSDC16707This is a criss cross card, in case you’ve never seen one.  I love these cards, but they take a lot of work, and they end up kind of heavy!  I put the belly band on, but couldn’t decide if I wanted it.  In the past, I’ve embellished the band, but I didn’t want to take away from the other stuff going on.  So I took it off…..

abSDC16710The hat paper, the cute bear and the rub on that’s on the tab (hard to see, it’s a green snowflake), all came from Imaginisce.  I bought them several years ago, so don’t run out looking for it;)  The colored cardstock I bought at a craft store to go with the papers.

abSDC16712The front of the card does not move, you pull up the inside with the tab.  I love this little bear and his hat and scarf are all sparkly:)

abSDC16714This is the back of the pull up, I put white on it so someone can add a message.  This card will be going into a box for Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂


Thanks for stopping by today! 🙂  I’ll be back in a day or two to share more great cards from some guests, I hope you’ll come back to see them! 🙂
