Animal card,MSE challenge

Added a little more trim and a co-ordinating flower .

Heres my entry for the MSE challenge ,put an animal on your card .
Heres my giraffe,though my OH thought it was a cow.
The image was made from paper piecing ,BP and brads were from my stash
I havent added a sentiment yet as I'm not sure who its for yet.


Had a hand sewing time ,for a change yesterday,found some offcuts of material,lurking in the back of a cupboard ,so decided to make some letters ,just to see if I could.

Heres the result,I started with cut out cardboard letters ,then covered them with material,stuffed them with polyester stuffing,from an old cushion,then trimmed them.

I think I went a bit overboard on the trimming,but I like them,lol.

I think this is a bit better

I added black lines to frame the image and narrower ones to pick out the doors of the card ,took off the lime green twirly bits as well

Think this works better,

Here it is closed up

My really rubbish card

Took ages colouring in the fairy image,added glitter to her wings and dress ,then pasted it in to this french door card ,coloured the doors to match,but it doesn't look right,the colour is too bright,think I went over the front too much,really dont like it at all.

Is it maybe the green curly bits on the front? should I take them off ?

Feed back and comments welcome,wher did I go wrong with this card please?

Finished pop up page

Heres the finished"popup" page ,I've added some silver bits then added 2 pics of my 2 younger grand daughters


Picture is rather dark ,I need to get a better camera,but its so convenient to use my phone.

Hope you can see the effect I was trying to achieve.

Starting another page in my altered book

Heres the start of another double page spread in my altered book.
This has been this years project and its been a challenge thinking up something new for each page,lol.
This page was inspired by a kit of pop up childrens cards,that my grand daughters had.I recieved this flower pop up off one of the girls,so decided to take it to bits,make some for myself and put some down the middle of the page.
There are actually 4 bunches of pop up flowers down the middle.

I added extra flowers to each ,to give them a bit of oomph.

Now I want to put some kind of trail down each side to add pics on.

Its really satisfying to open the book and watch them pop up.

I always was fascinated with pop up books since a child.
