A Surprise Pop Up Card


The wet weather here today has freed up my day a little, as the tradesman due to come to the other house have cancelled so I thought I would share this card with you.  Earlier this week I saw for the second time my blogging friend Nina (Paper Cupcakes) had made a Surprise Pop Up Card, so I thought I would give this type of card a go and make that Birthday Card for Hubby, who is another year older tomorrow.  I keep telling him that 45 means he is now offically old........lol so I couldn't resist using this image from Stitchy Bear Stamps  called Birthday Boy.



I think I need to get a better cutter to use if I am going to be making lots of these types of cards, and lots of practice too, but it was fun to make and great to be able to make something a bit different to your everyday card.



The idea of this card is that you pull out the tag to reveal a surprise sentiment or two with the added surprise that your image than pops up.  Fabulously Fun and perfect for a Birthday Card don't you think?

Chinese/Thai and Chocolate Mud Cake is on the menu for Dinner as we are having Rod's parents around to celebrate Rod's Birthday tonight, I just have to remember to pick up the cake.

I am now off to think about packing.  Every year around my hubby's birthday we like to head away for a few days.  This year we are heading to Coffs Harbour where we have been going the past few years.  We have accommodation booked for the week, so we are actually taking and leaving my mum and dad down there for a few days on their own, and Rod and I will get a holiday at home for a few days as well.  Which is something we haven't had since we moved here so that will be nice, and we are having a few friends around on Saturday Night for a BBQ too.

I hope everyone enjoys the weekend!
