Bunches & Bunches

Whoot! Won a challenge over at Waltzing Mouse with my jar of sparkle! I ran across the lovely notice while posting the Saturday challenges over at Feline Playful. I'm a fill-in volunteer at that awesome and helpful challenge site.

Still working on Christmas cards for sissy Gail but decided to take a break and give a technique I saw over at good ol' Pinterest! Can't believe I made a pop up card. This is REALLY out of my zone! So...hours later - Ta Da! How long did this take? Well let's just say two favorite movies Willow and Protocol were used as my distraction from cutting and punching... LOVE both of these movies!

Thank You ...Bunches & Bunches

Play Date Cafe - color inspiration
Gem of a Challenge - new beginnings (pop up card is NEW to me!)
Crafty Calendar - what's new (new technique)
Our Creative Corner - color plus flower
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Totally Paper Crafts - new (new technique)
For fun Challenges  - new (new technique - for me anyway!)

I'm going to go put some ice on my wrist (lots of cutting and punching on this one) and maybe watch another movie! Back to making Christmas cards tomorrow. Or maybe I will try to incorporate this pop up style into a Christmas card. Not like there is a big RUSH to get her 20 cards done!
