I have a special card to share with you today!
This is called a Surprise Slider Card. Here is what the card looks like closed.
Pull the little tab at the top and surprise! Up pops the balloons!
I found the instructions for this card on Splitcoast HERE
I used the stamp set, Balloon Celebration (pg 12) from the Occasions Catalog I won't tell you how long it took me to get all those gold bows and strings on the card! That was the hardest part! I just love the color combo of Soft Sky and Blackberry Bliss! Add a Touch of Stella and they really sparkle. I am not a big champagne drinker but I have two friends who live in Texas that love it!! (yes you, Margaret and Sharon!)
I hope this card will hold you for a few days. We are driving to DC for several days to meet Ashley at a conference she will be attending. We are trying to take advantage of seeing her as often as possible while she is still on the "mainland." She received her orders yesterday for Hawaii so it is official. Her report day in mid June. Now she can get started figuring everything out. Her car needs to be shipped to Hawaii and that will take anywhere from a month to two months. She has gotten the blood work and immunizations for the cat, Bogart, so he won't have to stay in quarintine when she arrives. She needs to figure out what to take with her (she is allowed 4 suitcases); what to send to Hawaii and what to put in long term storage! Glad it's her and not me! It boggles my mind!
