Hello, let me start by saying that this card almost felt like it needed to be made, It was like as I started getting the idea it just almost made itself. Maybe it was because the movie had been playing at work for about a week, maybe because balloons make me happy and I feel the need to share a bit of happiness when there is so much sadness and worry going on in the world right now. I can’t even think of who I would send this to because I want to send it to everyone I know and even those I don’t. Hopefully this card puts a smile on someone else’s face🎈🏠😊
This card was also made for the Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a gate fold card. That is a card that folds in from both sides and the opening is in the middle. I just turned mine sideways. Lol.
All the magic is in the motion, some of the balloons actually move up and down when the card opens and closes please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram to see the video. Feel free to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your creations.

I’ve been pretty busy (working on a really fun card for this weekends post 🤗) so I decided to post a card I made a while back (2014 😳). This is a back to basics kind of card with a little technique thrown in. If you look close I highlighted different spots on the butterflies with different colours of glitter. I found a way to colour my clearish Dazzling Diamonds glitter to match what ever colour of ink I was using. There wasn’t as many fun colours back then and even now sometimes it’s hard to find that exact match
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 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎

This card is a bit of a stretch Lol, Apparently February 22 is “Walk the Dog” day. So the challenge this week is to put a dog or any kind of pet on your project. I know most people don’t have monkeys as a pet but I wouldn’t a pet monkey be fun. Lol I was going to put a dog popping out of the box but I thought the monkey is just so much cuter 🐵
This card is so cute, and all the fun is in the reveal. To see a video of this card in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram

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.
I am disappointed to say that I was unable to create a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. I am still down to one arm and I haven’t been able to go down to my craft room and of my completed cards I didn’t have one that fit the challenge, so I am posting a birthday card that I made and had to wait for my friend to received it in the mail before I posted. So here is a card I made for one of my oldest and dearest friends, Kristeen and I have been friends for longer than I can remember, so this card had to be special. This is what I came up with.

Happy New year!!!!!!! I’m sorry I have been away, I generally take a little break around Christmas as my day job is retail so life is usually really hectic around the holidays. But I am back with a very Sparkly Birthday card. Not only is this my first card of the new year it is also the first Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year, this first challenge is to try something new on your project, either a new-to-you product or technique. I decided to make a card using the Karen Burniston “Gift Pivot Panel” die set. It is a die set that I haven’t used before and I have never made a pivot panel card before. This is what I came up with.

I have a really special card today, this is a card that I made for my sister. Now, my sister has been receiving cards from me for years now, and it’s hard to come up with unique cards especially when your sending it to someone who means so much to you. Last year I sent her a pretty over the top card (see it HERE) so the presser was on to come up with something really special, but I tried. and this is what I came up with…….
its a card that is fabulous on the outside…
and fabulous on the inside, just like my sis, Love you Sis
