Today's card is a double challenge card. At Scrappin' n Chattin' on Yahoo Groups, I am in an Every Day Card Challenge for Christmas cards. Over at Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog, our challenge is to make a slider card. Sherri found these great directions on You Tube ~Click Here~ for making these fun cards. This is my first ever slider card. It was fun to do :)
I started working on my project in my so organized craft room ~laughing hysterically~. It is hard for me to believe that I actually cleaned my entire room 2 weeks ago. From the looks of this photo, it looks like a hurricane hit recently.
As I was working away, I looked down to find my Boxer Scooby Doo asleep in Hailey's little dog bed. You see Hailey is always in the craft room with me, and normally, I am trying to get her out of my chair. She loves to sit right behind my back. In fact, that is where she is as I type this. A 100# Boxer Dog doesn't fit well in a Puggle bed. LOL
So back to my card. I used another Magnolia image, and of course, she is colored using my Copic Sketch Markers :) I added some Stickles Glitter Glue and some bling from the Copic Spica pens.
The slider part is so cool. You will see the "secret" is a plastic shopping bag if you watch the video. Here is the the card closed:
And then sliding a little ways:
And then all the way open:
Since I added so many pictures, I won't bore you with all the directions! The papers are from Imaginisce. The ribbon is Offray. The button is from Making Memories. The stamp sentiments are from Inkadinkado and Papertrey Ink. I used Memento Bamboo Leaves ink for the sentiment, and Colorbox Chalk Ink in Olive for inking the sentiment edges. For the Magnolia image, I used the Ranger Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) for the edges. I also used a white gel pen from Inksentials for accenting the image. Of course, all coloring was done with my Copic Sketch Markers~
I am a wife, daughter, step-mom, grandma, granddaughter, niece, auntie, daughter-in-law, cousin, sister-in-law, friend, co-worker, and much more to many people. But if I can only live up to being the kind of person my dogs think that I am. They love me unconditionally. They laugh at all of my jokes, and they are always happy to see me no matter how bad my hair, makeup or clothes look. They love everything I cook, and the don't mind when I snuggle my cold feet against them on a winter's night. My husband and family love me just as much, but my dogs never see the bad in me. I guess that is why people love animals so much. When I am not being everything to my family or working my 12 - 14 hour shifts at work, I enjoy scrapbooking and crafting. I spend way too much time on my scrapbook lists online! Wanna know more? You'll have to ask!
