Papertake Weekly Challenge

Yep, you've guessed, I am still off work with Aaron so I'm getting the chance to play in a lot of the challenges this week ! Having said that, Aaron is a fab patient and hasn't got to the age yet where he can suffer from "male-i-tous"!

Anyhow loved this sketch on PWC and will definitely use this one again, especially as I am a devil for sticking loads and loads onto a card but this sketch encouraged me to keep things clear & simple - many thanks Dawny.

I have made a slider type card and saw a tutorial for something similar when blog hopping the other day. Unfortunately I can't find the blog again but I know I have saved the tutorial somewhere, so as soon as I find where (!) I will let you all know.

Front view

Pull slider to the left to reveal "Happy"

Pull slider to the right to reveal "Birthday"

The papers are from the NEW "Doodlestar" papers from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts and a "Jim, Just chillin" image from Digi Stamp Boutique. I have coloured Jim with my promarkers. He sooooooo reminds me of my Dad that I had to give him grey/white hair!

Have a great Thursday everyone,
