Slider card

Welcome to my new follower, Soncee L.  Thank you for following me.  If you have a blog, please leave me a comment and I'll make a link to it in my next post.  

A simple CAS slider card today, so I could play with a new die. I can share it now I know the recipient has received it. 

I won a set of  Die-namics 'Surf and Turf' dies and 'Spin and Slide' discs as part of prize over in Pixie's Snippets Playground recently.  As making a slider card has been on my 'to do' list for ages, I couldn't wait to have a play. I used one of the dies to cut a channel in a stiff piece of white card, before embossing the corner with an embossing folder which came as a freebie with a magazine.  The wooden ladybird  was attached to one of the discs and it twists and turns as it goes along the channel.  The white card was attached to a red card blank with foam tape, so the ladybird moves freely.  I added green Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centre of each flower to match the green on the sentiment mat.

I am joining in the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge Week 398 ~ Wings on things (ladybird)
Inkspirational Challenge 126 ~ Word Prompt "Flutter" (ladybird)

You sure made quick & great use of your prize! This is wonderful, Liz! PS--I'd use my computer to print out labels, but for some reason I can't get the program to work right! Wasted so much time I could have had the envelopes handwritten twice--haha!
