Here's three I made earlier........



Three cards I made for the Scrappy-go-Lucky blog, but haven't put on here. I used the Everyday Pop Up Cards cartridge, and decided to use the sentiments - something I rarely do, I prefer to stamp, use sticker letters or my computer.
The base cards were cut with the cartridge as well - there are some interesting shaped cards on there - for the elephant card above, I like the chunky squares, looks like elephants feet. For this card I cut the sentiment, and added it to the elephant to look like a saddle, or whatever you call the throws elephants wear when they are dressed in their best......
For this second one, I used papers from the DCWV crafty stack, another card base cut with the cartridge (I like the pinking shears effect along the edge). I 'threaded' the machine with real thread, and added a brad
I was woken as usual today, not by an alarm clock, but by our neighbour, We all have really small patio gardens in our townhouses, with some large oak trees overhanging them, and he is slightly obsessed with his garden blower. I swear he spends all day waiting for a leaf to fall, and POW he is out there, brandishing his blower, sucking up the stray leaf. We clear our garden of leaves about twice a week, but Mr. Blowerman goes out every day at what seems like the crack of dawn to tidy away any stray debris. He also washes his car every other day, and blow dries it with his trusty machine. Just a touch of the OCD's I think. It is so nice living next to him, makes me look affectionately at my husband and think 'thank heavens you're normal'. I am confident that he doesn't read this blog, but if by some mischance he does............Mr Blowerman, please don't be offended, but could you possibly lay off the blower a bit, after dawn would be good......
I'll be back in a bleary-eyed way tomorrow

Goodness, don't you just love that cartridge??? The Ton of Fun card is my favorite, but they are all just perfection! I love using this cartridge... I just wish I could figure out the pop-up part of it. Hee! Hee!

Love the cards, especially the elephant one.
Don't you have a town ordinance against noise so early in the morning? I would be really annoyed since I am usually up most of the night and sleep until around noon. Hope he does read the blog and lays off! But I kind of doubt it, he probably would be blowing the bits and pieces of paper around and cleaning them up with his blower and OMG! we wouldn't want any sticky stuff or ink on the fingers!!!

They are all so cute, but the coffee one is my favorite. I especially think the saying is so catchy.
