Snowflake Joy - with a surprise!

It was Messy Day yesterday - a few friends got together from 10 'til 4 to craft the day away. No interruptions or distractions, just a fab opportunity to get a few Christmas cards made. The CDs go on and we sing along as we craft - great fun!

I made a few more CAS Sparkly Village cards but this card is a new design I made yesterday using die cuts and punches. I made two of these to add to my Christmas card stash.

And when you open the card you get a surprise...

...pop up gift. I used my two new bargain Sizzix dies here, the Gift #2 Originals die and the Pop Ups Bigz die. I got them both at 75% off - fab! Every Friday Sizzix UK announce their special weekly offers - they run monthly special offers too - and it's well worth checking out.
