The card that never, ever ends...never, ever...

I received this beautiful treasure in the mail recently...from my lovely friend and fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Diane Barnes.

If you can believe it, the following photographs are all from the SAME card. It really is, the card that never ends:

I showed it to my 3 year old, and he was fascinated by it, he kept turning and turning and turning it over, then looks at me and says 'it doesn't finish mummy'. Clever little boy ;-).

Diane also kindly supplied me with the location of the instructions to make this little treasure. You can find them on Karen Rogers' blog, and a video tutorial on Dawn Griffiths' blog.

Thanks again Di, it is stunning, and so much fun to play with.

Last but not least...don't forget to...

SMILE! :-)...I captured this shot of the iconic Sydney Harbour grin on one of our last trips to Sydney.

(Sorry about the unattractive light posts. If I had all night, I would have 'shopped' them out...but seriously, you'll just have to imagine it without them ;-). Thanks also to the fabulous Ree Drummond for her wonderful Fresh and Colourful Photoshop Action, which has been applied to the Luna Laugh...).

Have a great rest-of-the-week!!

So glad you (& master 3) liked it. I think I should hire you to take pics of all my cards too ;0)
Love & hugs, Di
PS: 87 days to go :)

Amazing photography (or post production) - thrilled that I inspired such a GREAT card to be made for YOU.

Guess what I finally finished A New Dawn the other day - great ending but so sad it's all over :-(

What am I going to read on the train now

What an awesome card - I've never seen anything like it. Wouldn't it be great for a special Christmas card?
Oh, and I LOVE the smiling face - I just had my braces off, so it kinda reminds me of me (minus the yellow pointy hair) now that I CAN smile and show my teeth :-))

What a gorgeous card - have seen these before but this is the first one I've seen that I've LOVED!!! It's put together beautifully - still can't work them out though - LOL
Hope you're weekend is FABULOUS too.
