Pure Insanity!

LSC251blk

I think I've been suspicious of Mel's sanity for some time...today I came to the conclusion... that insanity doesn't run in her family, it GALLOPS! And I realized her insanity is also the type that is contagious!

Day after day she posts these labor intense projects, plus blog posts. She puts more work into ONE thing than I do in 3 months! But, today... yes, today I had to try her box.

I'm not going into detail because you can see every little cotton picking thing here. Why should I go to all that work when she's done it for me! MuhahahaHAha (as she would say!)

LSC251 Silver Skating BoxSeveral challenges in one... the LSC on SCS today was... incorporate some sort of silver and/or gold decorations/ornaments into your projects. This does NOT mean it has to be an ornament OR look like an ornament … it just has to be some sort of holiday decoration AND it has to be silver and/or gold!! You can use any embellishments you like, and you can use any other colors.

And for Mo's blog challenge (yes, again!), Just White.

Remember the Penguin Boxes I did earlier in the week...well, another table got added as more people are coming to the party, so I figured this could go on that table!

LSC251 closeup Colored with Copics, hightlights with a white gel pen and Zig silver pen. The ice is silver embossing powder, snowdrift edges coated with Sugar Dust....and lots of seed beads on silver thread (insane I tell you!!). Crochet thread for the stitching, Martha Stewart border punch.
