Hahahaha this card makes me laugh, it is the birthday card that I made my little brother (in August 😊) who………. HATES garden gnomes 😂 Ever since he was a child he hated garden gnomes, so being the loving older sister I just had to make him this card for his birthday. My only regret was I had to mail it so I didn’t get to see his reaction 😂 This is my Second Garden Gnome, check HERE if you would like to see my first one.

Is it still a birthday card if you have to mail it in box 🤔, this is by far the biggest birthday card I EVER made. I didn’t originally plan for it to be this big but one thing led to another and KaBang giant pop up dinosaur. My kids actually told me I was insane 🤦♀️ lol. This started off with my thinking about making a 2 ball dragon card. I had seems some pretty impressive dragons and was going to give it a go when I remembered that I had a dinosaur 🦖 skeleton stencil from YEARS ago and I thought hey why make a dragon when I can make a dinosaur and I hadn’t seen a Surprise Pop up Ball Dinosaur yet soooooo my mind was made up.

Wow, things have been pretty hectic lately and I wasn’t able to complete a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. I have a few cards that I have made that I hadn’t posted yet and this is one of them. A friend of mine needed a fun card for a special little girl in her life who was having her 5th birthday and this is what I came up with.
Welcome to the weekend Woo Hoo, is it just me or was this a really long week, wow. With all the craziness going on right now with the COVID-19 I am looking forward to a quiet weekend and hopefully some time in my craft space. I am so anxious to share this card, it cracks me up every time I open it. Lol 😆 I have been looking forward to making this card ever since I saw Karen Aiken’s Monkey Card for some reason I kept thinking the ovals would make great elephant ears.
This card is also a Crazy4Challenges challenge and this weeks challenge was a design challenge. I had to use a sketch for the front of the card and I was free to do the inside however I wanted. And this is what I came up with.

Ever since Karen Burniston came out with the fun Surprise Ball pop up there have been so many fun animal cards. I have a friend who asked if I could make her a Long Horned Cow so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at a double surprise pop up animal. I thought he was lonely so I made him some friends 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎

So today I have a belated Valentine card. A coworker asked me if I could make him a card to give to his Star Wars lovin girlfriend knowing that not only was I not able to have it made by Valentine’s Day, it would probably be at least a week late, but he wanted it anyway so I thought that I would try to make it as special as I could. I’d be lying if I said this card didn’t have a few challenges it was a little trickier than I thought It would be but I just kept on moving forward and before I knew it, it was done. I also have to give credit to Lois Gray Bak as after seeing her “Death Star” gave me to idea to make this “Death Star”
This card had 2 separate pop up mechanisms and it LIGHTS UP 🤯

I am sooooo anxious to share this card. I had the Yoda design in my head for a while but was unable to make the card right away, then I made the card but was unable to share as I wasn’t able to give it to my son right away. So now I am good to go.
The fun is really in the POP, to see this card in motion please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Feel free to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your own crafty creations.
Ok, I’m back, I think 😬. I’ve been trying to get into my craft room but I still have limitations but I think I’ve got it worked out. I was posting three times a week, I feel realistically I can probably do two posts per week. I’m going to continue with the Crazy4Challenges weekend challenges, and I would like to create another blog probably earlier in the week. As I start feeling better I will work my way back into a third post per week. I appreciate everyone who has been taking the time to check out my blog.
This post is actually a day late 😬. This is my card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is a design challenge and this is what I came up with.

Ok, I know it’s a bit early but I’m in a Valentine mood, so I went digging through the Valentine card photos that I made last year but hadn’t posted. I don’t generally like to post a card before the recipient receives it. So I’ve got a few from last year kicking around. Today’s card is the card I made for my husband last year. Looking back at the photos I realize either I didn’t take many or I thought I had posted this card and had deleted them all. As there are no photos of me actually assembling it so I will give the best explanation that I can.

I think this gnome is so adorable, and once I saw Karen Burnistons Video tutorial on making this cutie I knew I had to give it a go. The Surprise Ball pop up mechanism is what makes this so card so much fun
