Kinked Ribbon & Twine - Easy Fix Tip

Pop Up Card

I recently received a wonderful surprise in the mail....a Pop Up card containing a garden of flowers. A friend of mine, Sandy Zinkhan, created this lovely array of flowers, butterflies and sentiment that literally pops up when you open the card.  This 3-d creation sits up and brings tons of smiles each time you see it--the fun part is flatttening it out and then popping it up again! What do you think abou this little beauty?

I am so excited about it that I think we may be doing a class after the holidays to learn how to make these wonderful treats. Since they do not fit inside a regular medium sized envelope, we will be using the Stampin'Up! Envelope Punch Board to create a lovely presentation envelope! So let me know if you are interested and we will set up a class date.

So, thank you, Sandy, for sending this beauiful "card" to brighten my day and give me an idea for a new class after Santa comes!

By the way, many of you know that Sandy was hit by a car about 6 weeks ago and suffered a knee injury. You will be happy to know that she is mending well--she's about 30 days ahead of schedule in getting back her mobility and strength! We will all be happy when she is well enough to join us in our classes again and I will be extremely happy because she is my right hand in preparing class materials. However, while she has been unable to help out, another little angel, Penny Metz,  "winged in" to take up the slack and make sure all our classes could stay on target with packets  prepared in time. A great big "Thanks" to Penny for all her time and effort in keeping our classes on schedule.
