Sisterhood of Crafters - Birthday or Fun Fold or Both

Hello my friends!
Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme this time around is 

Birthday or Fun Fold or Both
(of course I went with BOTH lol)

What do you think??

 You might be surprised when I tell you who I made this card for!!!
Is it for a little boy who's like Fire Engines and dreams of being a fire fighter some day?

It's actually for my 28 year old grandDAUGHTER who actually is a fire fighter.  Although, at the moment the only 'fires' she's putting out these days are at home LOL.  Being a new mom is keeping her busy but she is keeping up with her qualifications & schooling so as not to fall behind.


 This was fun to make and didn't turn out too badly as I made it quickly (lost track of time ... yikes) and had to quickly get it in the mail for her the same day I made it!  

Anyways ... I really enjoy making these pop up cards and even tough I have dies from a couple different companies for this sort of project, my favorite is the Box Card Dies Set from Pink & Main.

 Pink & Main - Dies - Box Card

Awhile back I purchased the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Fire Department' dies knowing I'd need them for both granddaughter Morgan and her husband Mark.    And before long, probably for Baby Charlie too!  LOL  He already has his own 'fire gear' ... they are a First Responder Family after all!!


I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
