Staycation! It's a vacation, of sorts, where you just stay at home. Sounds fine to me... I've got all of my favorite people and things here! It's spring break in Idaho and the snow is falling gently in huge tufts like freshly picked cotton. Sick of it. Seriously. :)

Here are a few things I've been up to:

I used "Love 'n Breakfast" by Lawn Fawn. Love that set.. it makes me giggle every time! Do you remember pop-up books? I made a pop-up mechanism on this card so that the toast pops up when you pull down the little tab. It's super cute. But it took me forever to engineer. :)

Here is a little demo of the movement:

My friend Valerie recently introduced me to Tiddly Inks. Thanks for that, Valerie. I also used an old sentiment stamp that I found in her stash. I have no idea where it came from but isn't it perfect?
The paper on both cards came from a new 6x6 pad by We R Memory Keepers that I picked up with my birthday haul. . . and I am off to use some more of it. Happy spring break, everyone!post signature

I'm stalking your blog! Love your cards - every one of them is just perfect. I'm especially enamored with the two cards from this posting. Thanks for the video, I'm a real chicken in making specialty type cards (fancy folds, pop up, etc.) but I may have to try your technique with my Lawn Fawn set as well because your card is just adorable!
