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.
All the fun is in the motion, to see a video of this card please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Feel free to join my Facebook page if you would like to share your own creations.

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
All the fun is in the pop-up so if you would like to see a video of this card in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Please feel free to join my facebook group if you would like to share your own creations.
I am so excited to show off this card, I think it turned out super cute and I have to thank Karen Ostergard , this months Crazy4Challenges host for coming up with this weeks challenge as I don’t think I would have thought to make this card without it. So you are probably wondering, what is this weeks challenge and it is…..BBRRRR. it’s cold outside in most of the Northern Hemisphere or it’s quite warm in the Southern Hemisphere. Do a winter themed card if you live in the north and a summer card themed card if you live in the south. Well I live in the North so winter card it is, but at first I was a little stumped as Christmas just past and I didn’t want to make a card that looked to Christmasy. Then I saw a Surprise Ball Valentine video from Karen Burniston that gave me the idea to make this fun snowman, and here it is.

So this is the last Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year, our challenge this week was to choose a design from one of the previous design challenges, and I decided to use my Surprise Ball pop up to make it a little more interesting.
I chose do to the C4C484 design, I decided to make the largest circle into a window and make it a pop up card.

I just love magic cards, they are so fun and they have such a fun surprise when you open the card, so when I saw the version of a Magic Card using the Parcel Pop up mechanism I knew I just had to give it a try. The size shape and mechanism for this card are all from Karen’s video tutorial (link will be below) I thought the ornaments would be a fun image to use so I chose my stamps and paper colours and away I went.

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

I finally got my Christmas cards done (yay me 50 of them) so I finally get to play with this fun Photo Collage Pop up die set (early Christmas present 🙂 I also had to make a card for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s challenge was to use my favourite Christmas stamp set and or Christmas die set to create a Christmas card. Hhmmmm a favorite was so hard to pick. I have always loved snowflake stamps and over the last 13ish years I have accumulated a few so I picked out one that was a little larger than the rest and went with it, and I also thought snowflakes would work well on the pop-up mechanism, so this is the card I came up with.

sooo if you have been following my blog you may have noticed that I have quite a few Harry Potter cards, apparently I know a lot of people who enjoy Harry Potter LOL, I do try very hard to make my cards different or to try different techniques to make each one special. My niece is a huge Harry Potter fan so I really wanted to make a special card just for her so I decided to make a bridge card.
