Snowman Card and Bad Glue

I have been trying to craft at least a couple times a week. Since all my stuff is in the basement I am not crazy being down there by myself. So, my husband will get ready for bed and then come down and sleep on the couch watching TV so I will not be alone. He is so sweet...sometimes:)

Any who, to the card.

Here is the sketch from Unscripted Sketches.
Here is my take on that sketch.

I am also using this for a challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog. We were to use an embossing technique. Either wet or dry. I used embossing powder for the snowflakes.

The adhesive I am using is not sticking well. I have been using Ad Tech Glue Runner. It is the kind where it is repositional then becomes permanent. Well...when is the permanent gonna start! I noticed all the stuff I have been doing in the past two weeks is falling apart! So, now I gotta go back to the store and get better stuff and fix all my work:(

BUT, thanks for looking at my card:)

Oh no, Vickie! Hope you find an adhesive that you like and that works better.....definitely not what you want to see when you work so hard on something. Your husband is a nice guy to sit in the basement with you. And, your card is really cute!!

Have a great day!

Ha! I know what you mean about the basement thing!!! My hubby would never sleep down there with me . You card is SO sparkley and cute.
I know what you mean about glue...I was using tombow runners....NO MORE..now I use 3M craft no wrinkle glue sticks...you get a ton of 'wriggle' room and it doesn't drop off the card a week later.
Thanks for being Unscripted this week.

Hey Vickie,
the Snow man card is really cute!

Sorry your having problems with the adhesive.........I use mostly 3-m double stick photo tape and Scor-pal tape never comes apart.

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Day!

I just hate it when you get yucky glue! Try emailing the maker. I did once when that happened to me and actually got three packages to make up for it!
