interactive adventure

I struggled a bit with the Jingle Belles' prompt "shake, rattle, and roll" partly because I just couldn't decide - a pop-up z-fold? a spinner? a box card?  That would have also qualified at the Watercooler, but I didn't really want to cut/punch/glue that many pieces - laziness being my other reason for struggling a bit :o

While pro'craft'inating and blog-surfing, I found a sketch at As You See It Challenge, a request for snowmen at Winter Wonderland, the Addicted to CAS prompt for midnight, a challenge at Use Your Stuff to heat emboss, a request from Merry Monday for snow globes and House of Cards wants to see what we can do with acetate or vellum.  All of my decisions were made for me - I just love that!
stamp set - Sparkly Season (retired); ink - Basic Black, Soft Sky, Versamark; Stampin' Write markers - Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Calypso Coral; Stampin' Emboss powder - Iridescent Ice, White; card stock - Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Window Sheet; Big Shot with Circles Collection framelits and Seasonal Frame thinlits (retired); Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Frosted Sequins embellishments (retired), unknown microbeads

I also noticed that Addicted to Stamps and More! is on their holiday week, anything goes at Christmas Card Challenges this week, and deep blue is the color prompt at Cards in Envy.

Making a shaker card as part of our sketch this week was a great idea! Really like the contrast of the midnight navy and the snowman - it must look really impressive in real life. Thanks so much for joining us at As You See It and hope to see you again!
