Life After a Blog Hop

Good Morning from Arizona - where the birds are chirping - "What the heck!" because it is going to be 108 today.  It isn't really hot until it reaches 110!  After that it is all relative!

I am totally confused by days of the week!  I go back to physical therapy in an hour!  Then I begin hibernation until the temperature is not offensive!!!!!

Here is the tutorial I used to make my shaker card - http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/shaker_card/

Watch how close you put your pop up tape - - or stuff sticks to it under your shape!  That was the mistake I made!

OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

GOOD MORNING HOPPERS!!!!!!!  Welcome to my blog.  Since I created this blog -- let's say 2 years ago, I have had plans to update and enhance it - I still have those plans, and many, many others! 

I enjoy trying new methods and techniques, and decided to try a shaker card for the hop.  Prior to making it, I gave methodology a great deal of thought.  I watched tutorial videos, and picked the simplest one to make my favorite!  After the 1st die cut I realized my mistake and I was off and running.  I know where my 2nd mistake was, but the card was together, and hopefully nobody looking at it online can tell!  But I know!  (Those little blue hearts would stick to "my mistake" if I shook it!)

Here is my red, white and blue "I Love You" shaker card, with blue sequin hearts in the shaker.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog.  To head back to the main blog hop page, you this link:                                          http://wp.me/p2kUr6-4o6

Operation Write Home Sketch #224

I made all of the parts of this card last evening --- and yes it is an Ambien card!  Which is nothing compared the bowl of watermelon I was trying to get up from!  Note to self - STAY in bed!
