Yet Another!

Good Morning! 
What a lovely fresh bright and sunny day today, i suppose it is teasing us for the expected rain that is due tomorrow not forgetting the wind also!
well we could keep our fingers crossed i suppose that Mr Sunshine may make an appearance.
Well as my title suggests i have yet another Sizzix pop n cutz card but more pastel colours this time using some magnolia accessory stamps the may your day be special sentiment, balloons and cupcake!
On the front of the card i paper pieced the balloons and raised a couple with sticky pads then added some stickles to give it a little sparkle!
On the inside i used the Decorative strip dies, flagpole with lantern and sign, along with the Poppy Die Party Lanterns so i could spell out Paula to hang above the sentiment, I cut the flagpoles out a couple of times and wrapped pink and white twine around the front ones to add a little texture.
I couldn't resist using the martha stewart  pretty border punch and again lots of stickles to make this card sparkle for a special persons birthday!
I am loving these Maja papers they are so elegant and very girly.
I will be entering into the following challenges
Just Magnolia - whats new (party lantern poppy die)
Stampin for the weekend - feeling floral
Sassy Cheryl - die cut
Try it on Tuesday - anything goes

Have a great day!!

Sizzix Pop N Cutz

Good Evening!
Fingers crossed all will go well not had much luck with the ole pooter of late but tonight seems to be a good one!!
The link on blogger to add photos seems to be working so here we go......................
Well I have been making a few cards of late using the Sizzix Pop 'n' Cutz , I am certainly loving these and they are so easy to make and decorate you can whip them up in minutes depending of course how much you wish to embellish them.
This was a recent one i made for my parents Anniversary i decided to go bright and colourful - ok you may need your sunglasses!!

I kept the front nice and simple as i had gone overboard on the inside, which reminds me I need to return the little birds i used on the inside to Caz!!! (sorry mate!)
If you fancy having a go at making a pop n cutz card you can see all the different shaped insides they do at
I have made a couple more of these cards but will save them for another time as you are probably still getting over the shock that i have posted! lol x
