Ran with Scissors


This is an ATC against a striped background- just do you don't need to adjust your eyes.  I am still on a bright color kick. Probably because its so gloomy, dirty and gray here lately. I am not digging winter this year. At all.

Anyway, this cute snowman from The Octopode Factory stars in this ATC.  I layered him on some of my new snowman paper from Recollections, and added some bright icicles from the paper on my desk- and added some lace trim and a ribbon. I made the sentiment on the pc- let this be a visual warning to you- do not run with scissors.  You could end up losing an arm- or gaining one, depending.  Stapled the icicles on just because it seemed to be the right thing to do. At the time.

Challenges:
Fun with ATCs- new (paper is new)
Created with Love- anything but a card
The Octopode Factory- it's snowtime
Dilly Beans Challenges- snowmen

The octopode snow man is very cool and looks great against the bg.

This just made me smile! Might be a bit morbid, but it's right up there with 'You'll shoot your eye out...'. One of those things we are always warned about but never seems to happen!
The bright mix of papers is wonderful and quite cheerful, which just makes the snowman even more fun!
