A Martha Moment...

This is a Martha Stewart idea, I have to spray it with glitter or something, maybe I will embellish it with some die cuts. I am submitting this to Die Cuts R Us for their make a gift challenge. It is made from folding an old magazine! It was very fun. I can see painting these, or covering them with glitter, or even spray flock. I can see making a mantle full of them. Go to Martha's website and the instructions should be there to make your own, and they have templates for gorgeous pop up cards!
Die Cuts R Us has a prize for this week, you get 1 entry for being a follower, and 3 extra entries if you make and post a gift. Definitely worth it, so get over there and play along.
Here is the outside of my start of Valentine cards already. This is the Stampin' Up! Truck with the loads of love sentiment on the inside. The inside punch is EK success. The hearts pop out!
And here is the inside of the loads of love card.

Happy Weekend everyone, hope you have a great Friday. We got a dusting of snow, and the puppy thought it was the most delicious little snack ever!
