June Reveal for the Card Chain Challenge

 My June card had to be a Pop Up card.  I really am having so much fun now that I have a few pop-up dies - dies made just for pop-up cards - YES!  I thought I'd make a summer house for a summer month - June.  I have the Poppy Stamps Winter House and I've made a Winter House and a Halloween house with it (to be shown in August.  Now I have a really different kind of summer house.  I couldn't throw away the cover on a pad of paper and cut it for possible use in the future - the future is NOW.  I couldn't just leave it alone, so I used some wonderful items from Whimsy to go with the house.  I think it turned out rather cute - well, I love it. As you can see I added a tree with clumps of leaves (really clouds colored green), hedges, flowers, bees, bunnies & little hearts.  Maybe a little overboard, but I couldn't stop.

House in Easel position - I added a sentiment as a stop for the easel.

Close-up of the easel card - I hid a bunny behind the door - barely fitting.

Close-up of the bunny with his ear sticking up above the door.  He had to stoop to get in the house, you see.

I hope you don't mind all the pictures, but I couldn't resist.
