interactive cards

i made these two interactive cards for this week's southernbreezes.com challenge.

the owl is a spinner card.....and the tag is a baby boy shaker card. both are fun to play with and usually get a smile from the recipient.

unfortunately i am having computer "issues" and could only scan them. i think that loses something in the presentation.

my >5 yo dell died unexpectedly and the new one is running vista....with a win 7 upgrade (free) on the way. i cant see downloading software for the camera and then having to do it again when i install win7. i must be one of the only ones who didnt realize win 7 was coming a week after i ordered the computer. a duh moment for sure.

dimensional card for challenge

just got home after spending a week in Hilton Head, SC....

this is another card made with "everyday button bits" from papertreyink.com, it has been my favorite set for the last few weeks. instead of using buttons for the balloons, i cut different sized circles from patterned paper scraps....3 of each.....glued them together to make dimensional balloons.

this technique would also be cool for christmas ornaments hanging from stamped branches.....
