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 ....|
|You're off to great places ...|

Hi Kell I totally love how you dress you cards so beautifully inside and out! Little miniworks of art. And today there is the words of wonder from Dr. Suess, love Love LOVE the wonderful of his philosophy.ReplyDelete
Now I also want to say that your comment on my blog is just beautiful and you made me feel very loved today, which is really nice as it's been a bit blah.
