Wish List

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

My granddaughter Hadley celebrated her ninth birthday this week (How did that happen? Seems like she was just two years old yesterday!).

She is such a sweet young lady, and I wanted to make her a fun card. I turned to the Lori Whitlock designs in the Silhouette Online Store and decided to give Design ID #144323 a try. Here's the result:

I just love these pop-up box cards. They're not so intricate that it takes hours and hours to make them, but they're still fun and interactive. This particular design works well for a boy or a girl, so I may be using this design again for a younger grandson.

I did add some extra stars beyond what the design included, and covered them with Wink of Stella for a little shimmer and shine.

The candle flames were also coated with a little WOS. It seems I can't even craft anymore without that stuff!

Today, I am meeting my brother for coffee, so I'd best get moving.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
