Spring has Sprung at TioT

Hi Folks,
It's a long time since I've been here  - but I'm back and  it's the  first crafting I've managed in about 3 weeks!
Just in time for our new challenge at Try it on Tuesdays and this time its 'Spring has Sprung' and we would love to see something that 'moves' on your project.  You can interpret this any way you like - moving techniques, dangling, pop-ups - it's up to you as long as something moves.  And for this month we are sponsored by


For my project I decided on a Tag Pop-up Card
and when you pull the Tag,

the front pops-up just like an Easel card, leaving a little space that I have used for my sentiment.  The personal greeting will be written on the tag.  I made one of these at a class when I first started cardmaking and luckily I kept the template.

My image is Katzelcraft, the banner is Graphic 45 Ladies Diary and the inner sentiment is Hero Arts, the swirl is LaBlanche. Papers are Papermania Capsule Collection.
We'd love you to join us this fortnight, and if you need any inspiration, then my fabulous teamies have some brilliant ideas for you, so please pop over here to take a look and check out the details.
I am entering this at:
  Bunny Zoes - Fav. colour combo - Black/white with a pop of red
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Dream Valley Challenge - Happy Birthday
  Pan Pastels - Use a stamped image
  Creative Corner - Girly Birthday
  Crazy4Challenges - Cards with movement

Life is getting back to normal, although my 'craft room' still needs some reorganising, so all I need is Mr. Mojo and some 'free' time.
Just before I go - I would like to say 'hello' to my new followers - hope to catch up with all you lovely people in the next couple of days.
