Winter Pop Up!!!

Last year I made THIS card which I never got chance to do in a class as the stamps kept selling out every time we had them in. So this year I have used different stamps and once again changed the size........this one needs a C5 envelope but you can still make the mechanics out of a strip of A4 card.......I do so hate cutting up 12 x!!!
There are two sets of stamps used here, both are from Kanban and both are chock full of images. The tree is too big to fit on my largest acrylic block and I have to use a Cuttlebug plate instead.

I've had a bit of a funny day today. Woke up full of beans this morning and have deteriorated slowly as the day has gone on with awful back pains and a headache. Then my foot started hurting so I gave up trying to do anything, took some pain killers and had an hour on the sofa. The day wasn't lost altogether as I did manage to make an apple pie for Mr all's right in his!!!
Tomorrow we have a mad day of cutting up the kits for the big workshop on Friday and I shall be triple checking everything because there was a vital piece of card I forgot to cut for the last all dayer and I had to cut it while I was doing the embarrassing.

Right I'm going to hunker down and read for a bit. I am re-reading a Maeve Binchy that wasn't my most favourite when I read it last.......The Glass Lake.......but this time I am quite enjoying it.

Tara for now then and thanks for dropping by.

  4. Great as usual Sheila. I too had never thought of using my CB plate as a mount for my oversize stamps. Thanks for all your inspiration. It was great to call in and see you on our recent visit to the UK. Looking forward to next time. Elaine X
