Usually I post on the first Tuesday of the month. I'm here for the Mid Month Motivation post over at Mynnette's Technique Tuesday. I'm still playing with Christmas paper, card and ribbon scraps and stamps lol! Anyways it will be going into the 2013 Christmas Card box lol!
I had a bit of a problem because I had not crafted for a while myMr Mo Jo wouldn't come out to play. And when I first attempted this technique I really screwed it up and I probably shouldn't tell you that! My first attempt of attaching the pop up mechanism went seriously wrong.
Thankfully a sheet of background paper, another mechanism and topper for the mechanism = quick fix. A steep learning curve but I hope to be making more of these some time soon! Loads of bang for your buck lol!!!
I want to enter the following challenges:
