Happy World Cardmaking Day 2017 :)

What will you be doing today?
What will you be doing to celebrate World Card Making Day 2017.  I have travelled to the adorable village of Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Village Paper & Ink. An adorable shop owned and run by the equally adorable Gina K..  She is hosting The Coloring Challenge Roadtrip so I get the added fun of spending the day with the wonderful Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker blog.  I'm so excited and this post will be short because I gotta run :)  Let me know if you have any plans?  I would love to hear :)

Have a great weekend :)

Fall Tea Cup Pop Up Card Featuring Hero Arts Infinity Dies

I love Hero Arts, how about you? :)  I had so much fun creating this card this week.  It started with Hero Arts Infinity Dies and my love of anything to do with Tea and ended with my quest to make a stand up card that someone would want to display and not be so ready to throw away.   There is a video below showing how I created this pop up card, a diagram below that for what I like to call my paper spring, and below that handy links to all of the products I used to make this cutie :) 
This weekend I'm heading to Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Gina and her lovely shop.  One of my happy places.  See you soon Gina :)  Is everyone getting ready for the holidays....I'm starting to itch to make Christmas cards.  I'm guessing I will start at Village Paper and Ink this weekend.
