Happy Birthday Slider

Well I am not that organised still, as it is my Dad's birthday today and last night I thought oops better make him a card. I mean I am a card maker, right so I really couldn't give him a store brought one, could I.
So I thought I might make him something different and I have seen these slider cards around and never really got to make one. So this was my goal.
Oh my why haven't I made these before... I really thought these where tricky (hard) to make but believe it or not they are quite easy. Why haven't I done these before?
So as my dad is a handy man, jack of all trades. I decided on the totally tools stamp set and tool shed background stamp. I went with the new In Colours of Island Indigo and Pool Party and this is what I came up withThis is the front of the card

and this is what it looks like when you pull the string.
(dont mind the odd blue look this is what I blurred out as I wrote on it before I took the picture.)

I think I will be making this style again.

Non stamping related

I am so sorry this post has nothing to do with stamping, but when I saw this photo I really just had to share. hehe
I will show you the photo first and then explain:
So there it is. You see these are my 2 sons, one is eight and one is eighteen, believe it or not they are racing each other, yes racing each other on the WII, Mario Karts. Can you believe it.... oh well I must say they did have fun.

Scrapbook Layout with fabric

Well Ladies I just had to make some with our new Fabrics that are available in this catalogue. I am excited about these because they are all just so gorgeous and well you can do lots with them. So I decided to go with a Layout for this one.
This layout also uses the new Stamp Set Forever Young and new punch design.
