Happy World Card Making Day!

Todays post is a little different than normal. Today is all about the "POP" Im sure you wondering what that means. Well I will tell you. Pamela the owner of Firecracker Designs was intrigued with a section in the Paper Craft magazine where they did steps on cards and by that I mean they took a nice plain and simple finished card and then added to it to make it even better or "pop" as some may say. So armed with the intrigue Pamela challenged the design team to do our own "POP" challenge or Step 1 and Step 2.
It works like this....One person made a finished card and then mailed it to the DT member below them on the mailing list. That person then took our card and added step 2 to it to make it really pop. So today we will be hosting a blog hop so you can see for the first time along with the rest of us the finished work.
For example, Pam sent me this finished step one card:
This was hard because her card was perfect the way it was. So, I decided to disassembled it a little bit. I cut photo corners and added a button and some ribbon and then sponged some ink on the edges. So this is Pamelas card finished by Step 2:
Now I was to send my step 1 to Ursula and she was to finish it. Here is my step 1:

So if you click HERE you can see what she did to mine and what others did with hers. Thats the idea of the whole "Blog Hop" today. So go check out what everyone did and don't forget to check out Pamelas Blog for information on some "BLOG CANDY"

I hope you enjoy everyones cards and I hope you spend the day making your own wonderful creations.

Have a great weekend.
