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!*
