Morning....even though it is Monday
Before today's card.......
Had a great weekend - though v tied...Emily as you will know if a regular reader of my blog - was competing for North Yorkshire at the weekend...and she did soooo well, she managed to get through the heats of 26 competitors to the semi's to 16 competitors, but sadly never got into the finals..I was so chuffed she got into the semi's as the youngest 200m competitor there at 13...and she loved every minute of it - which is half the battle when you compete, so I sat on a very hard plastic chair for in total 19 hrs - in the heat and jeans as I forgot my shorts....aaaaahhhh...Fab Em.....xx
Sorry - and onto todays card.
This card is a first for me....a standing pop up card
Saw it on the Magnolia site to make one of these, and turned out - and I love it...what a great type of card...
It stands up on it's own, and if I can do one - I am sure ANYONE can do one. Used my MS punch for the Happy Birthday - though sorry quite hard to see....
Made this for my good friend Maureens birthday this week.
and this is the side view and a view of the base, I did a back view so I can write on the back, and the beauty of this card it also folds flat, though sorry, never took a pic of that.
Have a go - they are easy peasie....and then enter it at Magnolia licious challenge
Catch you tomorrow-and thanks for popping by.
