Pop-up card. Hello Spring!





My crocuses are peaking out from under some ground cover. The weather isn't warm enough to be outside for too long, otherwise, I would be out there, today, cleaning up some of the dead foliage that's covering some of my flower beds. But, when the crocus start to bloom, it won't be too long before we will begin to see the dwarf irises, tulips, daffodils, and periwinkle making their appearance.

Today, I made a pop-up card. It's been a long time since I'd made one of these. More than anything, I must've used eight different paper punches to make this card. Everything from various sizes of circle punches to my Stampin Up scalloped punch and slit punch. Happy Spring to you!

I like the way you add a personal touch to each of your work.the one with the rubber romance lady walking with dog, on a basic grey background, you said you might consider sending it to a magazine, I dont know if you did but I honestly think you should!!!I do not know why you havent sent any of your card to a mag yet!!!Your blog is on my favourite list now and sorry you wont get rid of me!LOL.
