Lori has set us the challenge to Pop It Up over at the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and I decided to take the title very literally and make a very simple pop up card for my Father in Law

I used this cute Gruffies image and a few die cuts to make the card

and made a simple sleeve to slot over the outside of the card instead of an envelope

Sincere apologies for the awful photography. Yesterday was too sunny for a decent piccy and today it's too dull!? I really must dig out the instructions for my camera and see what I'm doing wrong...

Have a great day everybody. I'm off to start colouring for next week's challenge ;oD



  1. Glorious confection of a project and such an adorable image too, Lauren.

    I always find myself taking one photo with flash and one without - to see which one looks best. Perhaps a light box, where you can control the background colour according to light conditions?


  2. This is a fabulous card Lauren, you always have such brilliant ideas. Your design is perfect for this Gruffies image and I love the little sleeve instead of an envelope.

  3. ooh love this! fantastic idea with the sleeve - I take 2 one with auto and one that I programmed in but I can never remember which one looks better x

  4. You certainly can tell it was made with LOve..
    What a FABulous scene this is..LOving your colours and design.

  5. Lauren, such a cute scene you created. Love that stamp and you colored up the Gruffies beautifully. Plaid is so pretty with your sleeve. Thanks for joining us for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Nicely done.


  6. Your FIL will love this for sure. Beautiful papers make for such a nice background and card front. Love the sleeve idea also. Wonderful coloring. So glad you could join in on our fun this week at House Mouse & Friends this week. Enjoy your day.

  7. The garden scene you've created is just too much fun! I love the gruffie hitching a ride in the wheelbarrow! Beautifully embellished and absolutely made with lots and lots of love!
