Quite possibly you have popped over here from Mary Fish's blog.  How lucky am I that I found Mary and signed up to be a Demonstrator under her.  The "Pals" are such a great community.  They offer camaraderie, support and tons of creative energy.  I am pleased to be a guest blogger today on Mary's blog.

Normally I don't spend a lot of time on my cards but the Pop 'n Cuts Die has really fired up my creative juices. It makes me think about all of the things that we can pop-up.  Do you find that you get inspiration for cards everywhere?  Walking up the stairs to my home, I spotted the half-barrel that we plant flowers in every summer.  As the wheels turned in my head, I thought about the possibility of a  a pop-up barrel on a card.  And, as they say, "the rest is history". lol

After starting this card and not liking the direction it was going, I put it away.   But, it went together nicely the second time.  I hope you like it!  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
