CJ...at last!

Finally I have done this CJ (only a week late!) I just found it REALLY hard to do Christmas in March and was totally uninspired! Well yesterday I went to see my pal Gilly who is a font of fab ideas, with a vague idea about a pop-uppy-kinda-thingumy-jig! As luck would have it she had just done a "class" on pop-ups so in about 2 minutes was able to show me what to do! So here is my first ever pop-up....I used distress inks and cosmic shimmers to make the green card and then stamped the Christmas tree on to that. Then I used pastels and glittery paint and blue glimmer mists to do the backgroundy bit!
I quite enjoyed this...lots of thinking required and quite plain but I do like the overall effect! Hope the owner of the CJ does too 'cos the other entries are waaaaay more arty!

love the pop up and don't worry about everything else being arty. Isn't that the fun of Cjs that you get a variety of crafty ideas. No point if it's all going to be the same.
