Morning readers and welcome to the start of another week
I've scheduled this post as I'm off to the dentist first thing this morning. As I type this on Sunday evening it is -7°! YIKES - it might be a slippy trip - if you don't hear from me again then you will know I broke something! Wish me luck!
Anyway, yesterday over on Craftbubbles Craft Mad & Loving It group it was Karen's turn to set the sketch (on Saturday) and the themed challenge (on Sunday). You've seen the sketch (if you've missed it then do scroll down to check it out) and the theme this week is ANYTHING BUT A CHRISTMAS CARD! I can relate to that as I'm all Christmas card-ed out! Anyway, I thought I would have a go at something a little different for me . . . . a pop up card, I have had the pop up bag template in my collection for AGES and not used it. A handbag? (very Importance of being Ernest!) so what better than the La Pashe stamp set I bought on a recent foray to Newcastle. I used burgundy Bazzill card stock cut to 15cm x 15cm and black card stock and then some fab spotty card stock from Papermania, the pearly brad fastening on the bag was part of the fab Costco scrap booking kit acquired recently and the pearl embellishments came from the Craftsforall show in Bristol in October. I coloured my image using pro markers and Atyou Spica glitter pens. I think it qualifies as a Christmas card it ain't!!!
Thanks for stopping by, do please leave a comment and have a safe Monday in all this ghastly weather.
