Up, Up and Away

 I am so honored, I was asked to be the May featured artist for Tuesday Tutorials on one of my favorite blogs, The Vintage Dragonfly.   JoAnne frequently offers free vintage images at her site, along with the most interesting Tuesday Tutorials.  Her own work is awesome too, I hope you will stop by.   I posted the directions on how to make a pop up card like this one here on her site today.  So as not to give it away I decided I would show you some older pop up cards I have done.  I guess you can see the different styles, and you can also see that they can be complicated or easy.  I hope you will stop by The Vintage Dragonfly to see how I made the latest one.
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
