Rolling, rolling, rolling....

Hey!

Happy Easter Monday! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend; ours was spent with my guy's side of the family with lots of long over-due catching up, good food and good laughter too :)

I'm sharing a card today that I'm gonna 'fess up and say made my punny heart skip a beat:

On a Roll

I don't even like sushi, but I like it in paper form. Heck, I even think I'd really enjoy making the real deal, but I'd need someone with me who would be willing to eat it :)

The rolling mat was created by lining up toothpicks and adding knotted twine to the ends. The sushi is created by quilling; I think I may have the quilling bug...it was so therapeutic to sit and roll these li'l sushi cuties! And of course, the whole 'quilling/rolling paper' fits in perfectly with the punny sentiment - hee!

This card is 'rolling' its way into the Practical Solutions: DIY Embellishments Challenge over on Moxie Fab World. I recommend you check it out (Cath's even featured another pun-tastic sushi card there by Katie Gehring) and if you fancy entering, then get your skates on - the challenge ends tonight at midnight!

Right then, I'm rolling my way outta here....I've got some cocktail sticks that need replacing!

Catch ya later!

So stinkin' creative Aimes...love it! when I read the title, I started singing the song, "Rolling, rolling, rolling, Rolling on the River.." Have no idea who sings it! :) Happy Monday!

Okay, I have to admit I totally didn't get this at first - I thought it was a roller blind with some patterns on it, lol! But then as I began to read all became clear!!

Super-creative card Aimes!! Just love all the little details. I did quilling as a child - this is making me consider a comeback, lol!

Hope you're fully recovered from illness and getting plenty of inky time in!

*hugs*
