Hi everybody, Today I have taken up the Stampotique challenge,
It's time for a fun new challenge and this Week Coby is our hostess and she is challenging us to a "Boo" theme, Here is what Coby says about this challenge
"Say Boo to little children and they will laugh.... use the word Boo in your projects this week to let us laugh."
I have made two cards this week 'cos I can LOL My first will be my entry though,

This is Newton and I love him  :) Certainly use him a lot!
And this is inside my card, it is fun!! Like a bird's beak it opens and closes to reveal two little tinkers having a giggle and trying to spook Topher! I used double sided paper so that the inside would have contrast.

 Closing the apperture by opening the card.

 This next card was made first but I wasn't happy with it and then below the inside of this one
 and opening up to close the apperture. I'm still not sure which one I prefer although I think I like the inside of this one and the front of the first, Hah!!
Thank you for joining me and having a look at my latest makes! I hope you're warmer than me because I'm sitting here shivering, the weekend should be better, fingers crossed :D Gay xx

Loving these fun cards. I'd forgotten all about the 'bird beak' style pop open...clever clever...and beautifully clean and fantastically coloured as always x

faBOOlous!!! Love those "bird's beaks" - and Newton is certainly spooking me out! I would be cautious approaching him ....or perhaps I would run the other way;)

Oh! I LOVE both cards, they make me giggle and as I'm writing, still a smile on my face.

We in Wales have had BEAUTIFUL sunny and warm weather this week and even today, it's lovely although a overcast. Makes a change for us to have the warm weather LOL.
Have a great weekend.

Two fun cards Gay! Love the apertures which look easy enough to do but so effective, I must have a go! Love the two holding open the fold on the first card. A bit warmer today, ridiculous weather!!

I think I prefer the first one!!! :D
But both are great, the idea is fab and the Stampotique characters so fun and beautifully colored! :)
Love your 'Boo' apertures teehee, genius!! :))))
I hope you're a bit warmer at home today Gay. Here it's not too cold, but not sunny.. To answer to your last question, I'm well, but still SO busy and overwhelmed as usual Argh!!! :-)
