Pion Design - Pop-up Christmas Poinsettia

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing this tag shaped Christmas card featuring the gorgeous new Pion Design Christmas collection "Let's Be Jolly". I am so in love with all the traditional colours and the stunning festive designs! I have also used a beautiful mistletoe embellishment from Scrapiniec to dress up the front cover.

And a surprise when you open the tag because the inside pops up to make a 3D Christmas card!! I have used some wonderful vintage images from the collection to finish the inside. Thank you to my dear friend Lisa of A Mermaid's Crafts who inspired me to venture into a whole new world of fun with her amazing pop-up cards.

I'm so happy to tell you that I am now completely official and legally able to raise and care for baby wildlife! I will be continuing my studies as I will now enter stage 2, which is the medical side of the training. Meanwhile, I will be sharing the sweet faces that come through the front door of "PJs Wildlife Orphanage" and the stories that come with them!

This is the sweet little Chandler Bing, my very first legal resident ever!! He fell from a tree last Friday during a rainstorm and was picked up my a kind passer-by, who then took him to animal control. Thankfully instead of putting him down, they called me and asked if I would take him...

There's no saying no to this face!!!

He was cold and wet and covered in fly larvae, but a warm bath and some warm snuggly blankets put the life back into him. He's got a great appetite now and he's growing wicked fast!! Sweet boy!

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments and support!
