I live in Spalding in Lincolnshire (UK). I am married to my soul mate Nick ( who likes to joke about how much each of my cards have cost me to make) & have had 2 children. Holly who is a beautiful daughter but has a temper to match her red hair. Unfotunately her sister Ashleigh died in Dec 07 aged 3 weeks from a rare liver disease & heart problems. She is always in our thoughts & missed by all of us.
I've been crafting now for about 2 years. I am also trying scrapbooking!! I have made many friends through craft & hope to make many more. I also work as a Special Needs 1-2-1 teaching assistant at my daughters primary school so my crafting is my break from the real world...
My mum's birthday is next week, so thought I would make her a special card. Something a little bit different. I found this design on Splitcoast Stampers a good source of inspiration. It is called a "Surprise Pop Up Card", hope you can see why from the images below. (You pull on the tag at the back to reveal a picture or sentiment.) Thank you Holly for helping me take these photo's.
I used the following:
Stampin up papers - Bella Bleu & Taupe card (12 x 12 paper sets)
An old Dictionary (used on flowers)
Hero Arts - Sweet Owls
Whiff of Joy - Swirls
Bildmalarna -Tossa Flower
Stampin up - Whimsical Words
Woodware Punches - Flowers
Thank you for looking. Hugs Nicky xxx
p.s Holly's has commented on my blog but has used my sign on as she doesn't have her own yet!!!!
