Be Merry Pop-Up Christmas Card

Good morning friends

I'm back today with another holiday Pop-Up card, using a new paper pack from Stampin' Up. I can't remember if it was in the retired section or the Clearance Rack, but either way it was a good deal and I couldn't pass it up. It's so fresh and clean!

I used Karen Burniston's A2 Pop 'n Cut with the NOEL insert for the inside. The tree stamps & dies are also by Stampin' Up and I was really surprised that they ended up on the retired list! I love mine.

Into the holiday card stash with this one.

Hi Karen, you are fAR TO TALENTED .Iam sure I am on the wrong post
I am a loom knitter and have looked everywhere for your 3rd hat on pintrest. An adult hat of browns I think I can not see the front and can not find a you tube or pattern thanks

Hi Betty - thank you for your kind comments! I cannot see the hat you are referring to, but I have to tell you I rarely use a pattern when I make hats. I knit the brim - sometimes with garter stitch, others with rib. Depends on the yarn or who I'm making it for. Then I use whatever stitch I'm currently in love with and knit it as deep as I want it - and that also depends on the yarn and the person I'm making it for. Because of all the variables, I do not attempt to write a pattern or post it as then people get angry if the hat doesn't turn out exactly the way they want it to even though they used a different yarn or loom. I have a loom knitting blog, which you can find at : Of course I don't update it as often anymore, because I have SO MANY loom knit pieces that I am still using I don't really need to make more. Other than hats for the grandkids that is - they need new ones every year. I did start on a triangle scarf that I posted, and it's now finished. Need to get it blocked so I can photograph it as well. Hope that helps. Have fun with your looms and you will see you don't really need a pattern for hats.
