Stampin Chic....Technique Challenge

Morning's Friday and lots to share today and beware this post is mega pic heavy......first my card for this week's challenge over at
and we have a technique challenge for you this week

Papers: WeR Memory Keepers....Hoop-la
Flowers: CCSR Doodles Stamp Set
Quickutz Flower Die
Grass and Tree..hand drawn and cut out
Sentiment cut from Sentiment Paper
from CCSR "The Big One"
Apolgies for my squinty tree...but just pretend that the wind has been blowing from the right
I must admit I thought this was going to be a bit of a challenge....I have made pop-up cards before but quite some time the thought of searching out suitable instructions and then deciding what to do....well let's say I was less than enthusiastic.....but an angel in disguise came to my rescue.....yes my lovely bloggy bud....the one and only Dawny P   I just happened to be chatting to her on the phone today....she was still not able to access her blog or anyone else's for that matter and is having serious withdrawals...but hopefully will be back in business very soon......and I mentioned I was off to make a pop-up card.....well did Dawn not do a fabulous pop-up tutorial  on her blog a short while I went to find it and lo and behold just thanks for that matey and if you want to have a will find it HERE...easy to follow  instructions with great pics.....even dopey here found them easy peasy.... and what I thought was going to be a pain in the neck turned out to be a bit of a doddle.  What would we do without our fabulous bloggy buds.....will be back soon with the next post of the day and a little surprise......

P.S.  Sorry folks....the Here link to Dawn's fab tutorial didn't seem to be working....but I have waved my magic wand and sprinkled it with lots of fairy dust and hopefully it now works.
