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.

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 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎

Hello, and welcome back. My post today is a card I made for this week Crazy4Challenges challenge. Apparently March 8th is International Women’s Day, so the challenge was to include a women on the card. I included four 😊. I made a Thank you, Pop Up, gift card holder card.

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.
All the fun is in the movement, to see a video of this card in motion please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram feel free to follow 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.

Well this card was quite the challenge, actually it turned into 3 challenges, 2 planned and 1 not so much. It is a weekend post so it is obviously a Crazy4Challenges post. This weeks challenges is a design challenge and the design is below. Challenge number 2 was a challenge that came about by Karen Burniston herself. A few weeks back I posted a question on her PoP up Peeps facebook page. I was in the process of making a Photo Collage card and I noticed it was making a scraping sound, so I asked if I was doing something wrong or if there was a way to prevent the scraping sound. Karen replied that the scraping was normal and she challenged me to make the sound part of the design of the card….. so I came up with the cat clawing the wall. Challenge 3 is not as fun. I have been dealing with a medical issue that at the moment greatly limits the use of my left hand. I had most of the card finish and most of this blog as well earlier in the week, but it was a challenge getting it finished. And as I sit here typing with my one good hand (good thing I’m right handed) I know the rest of this post may have a little less typing LOL,
my take on the design challenge

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
