Happy Monday!!! Still happy for me, starting week 3 of 6 weeks off, yup nearly halfway through and it's zooming by so fast!
I'm popping in with a card today that has been keeping me up at night, bugging my mind until I made it. I'm so thankful that I did because not only does it makes me smile, but really impressed my guy and made him smile too :D
I know what'cha thinking...."what's there to smile about?"....well just pull that little terracotta tile tab on top and you'll see...
...just a wee bit more....
TA-DAH!I hope it makes you smile too! Not only does the chair magically cover itself, it releases a pun based sentiment! Aha! EUREKA! This card has been bugging my mind for ages I'm so happy I got to put the theory into practice and I can now sleep at night!
This card is for our brand new shiny challenge on the PTI Blog - I hope you too can play along and create a long a tall card (don't worry you don't have to make a card like this - I'll confess it took me a while to figure out the logistics of it!) just break outta your comfort zone and create a long/tall card for a change - I promise it's good for the creative soul!
Now I cannot claim full credit for this creation so I'd like to nod you in the direction of the following:
- The colour combo came from this fab creation from one of my fave PTI DT members, Lisa Johnson (I just threw in the Ripe Avocado instead of Kraft for good measure; green makes everything better IMHO!)
- The idea to make a magical slider card came from this super old tutorial on SCS that I saw over a year ago and thought was pretty cool. I just knew there was a reason it stuck in my head all that time! I didn't make it the same as this tutorial, but that's where the concept comes from!
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it and the sweet comments you leave - I do read every single one in pure appreciation y'know!
I'm off to a Hen Afternoon tomorrow (always thought they were s'posed to be hen nights but anyways I'm sure it'll be a girly giggle!) so I'll be back later this week 'cos I just NEED to play along with the current (and nearly ending) Embellish challenge and this week I get to play as a DT member over on CASE study - so excited!
Catch ya later!
Edited to add: I'm finally starting to catch up on the Papertrey Peeps Challenges with this card too! This one is for Challenge #11 which is to try something different with my cardmaking; well I certainly don't make these everyday LOL!
