It's Mardi Gras Time at Gingersnap Creations! {aka: The card that nearly killed me.)

If you are here to check out my Butterfly Post click here or scroll to the post below!

The Gingersnappers are celebrating Mardi Gras and it's all about the party! You know you want to make a mask, so come join in the fun!!!

Mardi Gras


Here is the fun little card I created for the challenge. Well, it would appear to be a fun little card, however, I have to say, it nearly killed me. No. For reals, people. You see those perfect Mardis Gras feathers? You know...the ones with purple, green, and gold coloring that simply HAD to be used. Well, as it turns out, they are real and I am horribly allergic to them. Contact with them set my allergies into full force and then that led straight into the cold that I've had for over a week now. Yup. This card nearly killed me. Just say'n. HA!!! I honestly find the entire thing, rather amusing. I really do.

I suppose that is what I get for buying random bags of real feathers from sweet little old ladies at yard sales. Just say'n.

Those fabulous mask stamps? Yup. Those are totally Scrolls Work stamps. I love that stamp!

Also, I want to say a BIG Happy Birthday to my fabulous little Sister, Sarah!!!!

I hope you have a fabulous day!

I'm sooooo allergic to feathers too!
The card turned out great but perhaps passing along the rest of the feathers to another crafty friend is best. ;0)

Out of suffering comes the most creativity. Hah! (I just made that up.)

Um, Jen, you do remember those "sweet little old ladies" from "Arsenic and Old Lace," right?

Your card is WOW! by the way.

Cute card, but I think you may have to ditch the flowers.
I remember you mentioning these feathers before.
Crazy lady, our craft isn't worth not breathing over, teehee.

Kristin said...

How fun! This is so cool and I love your Theodora below too - and I loved your tutorial last week too - that altered cover was just beautiful - thanks for sharing, xo

That's a fun carnival card making you happy just to look at it! I love it! :)

Lesley said...

Hi Jingle, Wow what a lot of loveliness here. I have a suggestion for your feather problem, throw them out and stay tuned for a tutorial on paper feathers. I made a few for my matchbox as you know and once I show you you will want to make your own. Never know what is in those dies they use from China. Beware be very aware.
Hope you feel better soon girl.
Stay creative and Jingle all the way!!! :)
