Hello My crafty Friends, I know it has been a long time since I posted but I have been busy changing my blog from WordPress to Blogger along with the Holidays and work. Hopefully soon I will be back posting regularly. Please do not give up on me. Here is a little card I created last fall for a dear friend's little's grandson who really is into dinosaurs. I created it using Karen Burniston's Itty Bitty Pop Up Ball, Surprise Ball Pop Up and the Flap and Closure. He was very excited when he received the card. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting! PLEASE be patient with me I am working on some new flowers and cards. Christine You only live once but if you live right once is enough! Unknown
Welcome my crafty friends, My card today has red poppies in honor of all the Veterans as we celebrate Veterans Day. I am so thankful for all those that have served our country some who have given their life for our Freedom. My card is a 6" X 6" tent fold card. Pattern paper from my stash was used to decorate front of card. The blue paper with white stars was cut 5-3/4" square then adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Flag pattern paper was cut 5" square then adhered as before. Susan's Garden Club Oriental Poppy die set was cut from white cardstock ( 3 full flowers and a bud) , colored with Copic marker then shaped.

Several sprigs of Rosemary were created as well as 1 ladybug. Tutorial video can be found here . 2nd & 3rd Spellbinders P
