My Best Friend

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I can here Spring here because the birds are chirping right out side in the trees and bushes. Too bad they are forecasting snow for us tomorrow night into Thursday though I believe it when I see it, we have had so many false alarms when it comes to the white stuff around here. I want to give a big thanks to my dear friend Pia. She opened her house to us on Saturday so that all the stamping/scrapping friends myself, Peggy, Michelle and Donna could have a full and fun day of  creating and crafting (Kristen we missed you).

This week for the challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is Pop It Up! I love to pop a lot up on my cards with pop dots. It time I decided to try something different, I colored the image multiple times then cut out the pieces, turned them over and used my ball stylus to puff or pop out the shapes of parts of the image. It is fun to do but takes some practice to make it look perfect. It is definitely something I will do again.
I hope you want to come play with us this week, I can't wait to see what you create!
