Gobble til ya wobble

Hi Guy and Dolls and Happy Friday! well as usual the holiday season is sneaking upon us. I love this time of year when there is a crispness in the air and all the leaves are beautifully colored. I can't wait until Thanksgiving for the pumpkin pie. Yum! Its my fav.
So today I have a cute Thanksgiving card for ya.
I cut the little turkey from simply charmed. I used a homemade "action wobble" on him. He really wobbles around.
For the action wobble I  bought some small springs from the hardware store and cut them in half.Then with my trusty glue gun I ran on end of the spring between some small circles of cardstock and glued them. Repeat on the other side and there you have it homemade action wobble.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a great day and wonderful weekend!

I'm Back!!!!!

Hey Crafty Pals!
I'm back, well for now. I hope that I can back into the swing of things again. I actually have something to share with you today. 
Today is my Mom's birthday and I had to make her a card. 
I wanted to make her a pop-up card and I tried, TRUST ME I DID TRY!!!!
I am so upset with provo craft that when they created Everyday pop-up cards that they didn't include instructions on how to assemble the pop ups!!! 

ok enough ranting...

Well I used the birthday cake on pg64 of everyday pop up cards. cut @ 4 1/2.

I used cuttlebug folders 
Herringbone on the candles
Swiss dot on the base 
de`vine swirl on "frosting"

I used a MS doily lace punch on the sides.
All the paper is Colorbok just from different packs. 

I added glitter on the swirls and used glossy accents on the flames. 

I hope to be back tomorrow with a Thanksgiving card. Thanks for stopping by and Please let me know what ya think!
