flaky friends

We've had quite the snow storm this weekend. So now I can't get snow out of my head. I'm playing along with the friday mashup. It's challenge #30. We're mashing it up with a sketch and something recycled, renew, or reused.

One of my favorite unusual recycle items is this roll of  dry wall mesh that I've been using forever. It was a half roll that was left over from a remodeling project. It's great stuff it's sticky on the back so it is real easy to apply to your paper. I've used it as my background on a piece of tempting turquoise card stock for some great texture.

My card base is chocolate chip. I found these scraps of holiday treasures DSP and some teal colored brads left over from another project. The stamp set  is a retired set called flaky friends. It's one of my favorites.
Well that's my card. I hope you like it and you should give this dry wall mesh a try.
Happy Stampin

WOW!! Karen, I love this! The use of the dry wall mesh is awesome and goes perfectly with everything and Flaky Friends...its one of my very favorite sets.This really looks awesome!

By the way, I'm still mad at you for taking my snow, LOL ;) It's snowing here today, but we're only supposed to get about 2", nothing like the Nor'easter that blew through your area!

Hi Karen, what a fabulous idea to use the mesh in your cards, it looks fabulous.

Those snowmen are comical and put a smile on your face when you look at them.

Thanks for sharing your creation in this weeks challenge.
