Twist & Pop

I was surprised how quickly this card came together. The fun fold is actually pretty easy to make, especially when I followed this tutorial-  It impressed my sweet hubby. He actually gave a double wow response when I showed it to him!
The cute image and sentiment on my card are from Bugaboo. I provided close-ups of the rock stars on the inside of the card because they are pretty classy with funky glasses, plus I gave them bright streaks of color in their hair (er...wool!)

This card features a portion of a stamped image from Art Impressions named Golden Oldies Party Group #U-1552 (the stamp is now retired, but you can see it here). I fussy cut these two cute characters from the image, colored them then layered the card. Finished it off with a small sentiment tag from Lili of the Valley. Am entering it into the current Stella Says Sketch challenge at Bugaboo Stamps.

Haven't entered a card into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge for a while. So used an old PSX sentiment stamp, embossing folder and some flowers that I fussy cut to craft this card. Tied up the design with a wonderful bow and ribbon strips that I rescued from a box of Godiva chocolates a few years ago. (I never throw anything away!!)

Beccy Muir, a favorite and very creative stamp and digi designer from Australia, shared her favorite cards for 2017 on your blog (Beccy's Place) and invited us to do the same on our blogs. Since I started blogging this year, getting to know people like Beccy has been one of the unexpected benefits! Going back and reviewing the hundreds and hundreds of cards and other items I've made was quite fun. Here are my favorites using Beccy's wonderful images. (You can visit her online store here 
The first ones are from Beccy's digi set named "Seasonal Windows."  Love the scenery and the sentiments show up on many of my cards. So versatile! Just realized that I haven't made a card with the Spring window yet. Will need to do that soon (maybe it will chase the winter cold spell away if I make a card?)

These last two cards use the summer window (enlarged one section of it) and winter window a front & back set of cats from Art Impressions.  

The next few cards are from the Gnomes in my Garden

And a few other misc favorites, from several of Beccy's Freebies (she has LOTS available for free download.)
