Spring into Action ;)



Hi friends - short post tonight but I sure wanted to share with you some pretty fun news in card making :)  For this week's bi-weekly challenge, I'm the hostess!  Since Spring is April 8th this year, I put forth a challenge the Riley and Company DT - and all of you - to created a card "Spring-ing into action with Riley!"  We'd love for you to create a card or project that moves!  Consider pop-up cards, wiper cards, waterfall, slider, swing flop cards - SCS has tutorials for about 40!   When you load your cards to a gallery, please use the code Riley0712.

For my card, I made a slider/spinner card - Riley is off on a journey to wonderful places! This card slides up and down, thanks to a strategically placed penny ;)  His hot air balloon is paper pieced in matching paper to the card and I used Cloud background paper because today's post for the Twisted Tuesday Challenge is to use clouds on your card, the non-stamped kind! You can find the blog here.  For the sentiment (computer generated) I used one of my favorite sayings from Dr. Suess from "Oh the places you'll go!"  and started the quote on the front, finished in the inside :)

Thanks for stopping by - and thank you for the prayers for our family.  I'll keep you posted, this will be a worrisome week, that's for sure, but God is great and knows our hearts and needs long before we do.  *Hugs, sweet friends!*

Up, Up and ....
Away!
You're off to great places ...

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings,
