A pop up box for Charlotte!

Good morning, our challenge at Crafty Catz this week is sponsored by 

The prize is a $6 voucher

Our lovely Ginny is hosting and the theme  she picked for the team is 'Add a number'.
It's my youngest Granddaughter's 1st birthday next month- the time has passed so quickly, I'm a little sad that I missed so much of her first year because of the current situation, but we'll definitely make up for it as soon as we're able! Since we've been allowed to meet family outdoors we have seen her a few times and she's getting used to me again- so looking forward to when I can squish her a bit!! - she's very round, smiley  and beautiful and definitely huggable!
Anyway, back to the card- I made a pop up box featuring one of Mo Manning's adorable images, which is coloured with copics  and paper pieced, fussy cut to sit  on top of the box.

 I've added die cut balloons and hearts,  happy birthday sentiment and her name. The papers are from Polkadoodle (so pretty). 
I decorated the outside of the box with a number one, die cut banners and some die cut hearts.
As always the rest of the Crafty Catz Ladies have produced some beautiful cards so please do take a look! 
Remember, the theme is optional if you wish to play along.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend

That is just gorgeous Chris. It's hard when they are so little and they don't really know you. Even harder not to pick them up when you do see them in the garden! I'll be round shortly to sort out that craft room lol. Have a nice weekend.

Hi Chris,
what a very lovely pop up box with that adorable image.
Love your super design it's so gorgeous.
I know what you mean as my youngest Great Grandson was 4 months old today just saw him once after he was born and then all this started.
I see photos of him most days but it's not quite the same plus my Granddaughter is suffering with panic attacks since giving birth to him.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. said...

Such a beautiful card, Thank you for play with us at Polkadoodles craft challenge blog. Good luck with your entry.
