Well there I was the other day, wrapping my older sister's present ready for when she came for tea, when OMG!!! I had forgotten to make a card! (tell me how that is possible????) So this is what I "whipped up" - literally! It took all of 15 minutes and as I was making it I was thinking "this isn't working putting all of these different patterns together" but when I finished I really liked it! So did my other sister who had turned up right at the end of the panic attack. LOL Maybe not everybody's cup of tea but I like it.
Anyway my other sister's birthday was three days later so I had more time (but still did it at the last minute LOL - I wouldn't be me if I was organised! LOL) She likes cards that "pop out/up" so I cased this idea from a tutorial by Diane Zechman on the Scor-Pal site. It's called a "Windshield Wiper Card". When I say cased I really mean copied LOL as it is very very similar to her card (different stamp set and a couple of minor colour changes) but hers was soooo cute!!! She used the SU set "Unfrogettable" which I haven't got but it will have to go on my wish list because it always makes such cute, adorable cards. On that note though, I do love the stamp set I used "Crab & Co" as it always makes cute cards also. It was from a mini catalogue last year and yah!!! it has made it into the new SU catalogue!
