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 🤯

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

So I’ve been looking through my old cards and I came across this card that I made my husband 10 years ago. It was an anniversary card that I made for our 10th anniversary. But it’s kind of pretty and it could pass for a valentine card so I thought I would share today.
Sooo this card started off as a joke, It’s a little on the corny naughty side so if you are easily offended this card may not be for you. So a friend and I were tossing around ideas for a card for me to make for her to give her boyfriend for Valentines day, well we got searching on google and came across a cartoon version of this card (isn’t Google great, card will be posted at the end of the post) well we both laughed because her boyfriend is a carpenter, and she thought he’d think it’s funny so away I went to my paper room. You can’t tell in the photo but this is an interactive card, the hammer actually swings up and down.
Valentines is only a few days away so I thought I would post another Valentine from my card box. I wish I could take full credit for this card but I got the original idea from a card challenge I was a part of back in 2010 😳. It was called a Featured Stamper challenge from Stampin Connection, and the challenge was to look through the featured stampers posts, find something to use as an inspiration and share what we came up with. Lisa Young was the featured artist and I really liked how she cut the petals of the flower to make a heart she said she got the flower idea from a craft magazine. The colours and embossing were how I changed it up to make it my own.
What’s black, and white and red all over……. 🤔 this fun Valentines Day card. It may be hard to see in the photo but the black and white sections of this card are not made with patterned paper 😮 I know, shocker right. I really like how the red pop against the black and white, but if I had to do this card over again I would use a wider red ribbon to add a little more pop.
So I was going through my previously made Valentine cards when I came across this gem, apparently, I shouldn’t post the new cards that I am currently making as they are all part of valentines gifts and I don’t want to ruin the surprise 😊 This card is what is called a “Neverending Card”, it is an origami style of card that as you open one layer it brings you to the next layer, when you open that layer in brings you to a third layer, when you open the third layer it brings you to a fourth layer, when you open the fourth layer it brings you to the first layer which starts the whole thing over and can be done continuously which is why it is called a Neverending Card, this one just happens to be a Valentines card 💝
