Quote of the Week

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I can't believe it's Sunday already!  Where did the weekend go?  It's already time for another Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  This week should be fun.  We'd like to see you create a project where the inside POPS up.  There are so many great examples by the DT to get your creative juices flowing. Make sure you check them out and leave em a little love.

  I decided to make a basic pop up card.  I need a few more birthday cards this month.  I think this one will be super fun to get.  I am also submitting it to the Start to Finish challenge over on the Moxie Fab blog.  My last card didn't turn out very well on the inside:(

Here's the outside:

Here's the inside:

I love the super fun colors on this card.  I used some of my Jolly by Golly paper by Cosmos Cricket.  It makes me very happy that I could take "Christmas" paper and make a birthday card.  Also thanks to Sally and Shawne for the tips on sewing!  Several different things I used on this card were Liquid Applique (the wrong way) and glitter on the cupcake.  On the inside I colored a No. 2 Thicker with Copics and added glitter to that as well.

Are you ready to play along?  You could win this beautiful set from Verve that our very own DT member Sarah is sponsoring!  I love VERVE!

So get popping and show us what you've got:)

Don't forget to check out my post later in the day for the Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop!  See you then!
