Happy Saturday! I hope your week has been better than mine. I have been having problems with my health again specifically with my right arm and shoulder. I could barely move it a couple of days ago so I finally had to go to the doctor. I have been putting if off for awhile now because my husbands employer changed our health insurance and now we have to meet a $3000.00 deductible before things are covered 100%. That means we have to pay out of pocket for everything before that now which is not affordable for us. Unfortunately we don't have a choice though. My doctor thinks it is bursitis or tendinitis and gave me some new anti-inflammatory to try. Hopefully they will help. She is checking some other things too.
Today is also the 25th of the month which means it is time for another Papertrey Bloghop.
This month the challenge was to make an interactive card. I love those. It was hard to get anything done this week because of my arm but thankfully I was finally able to finish it in time. This is what I came up with.
I originally had this idea in my head for a Valentines Card but since that holiday is over now I made it into a Anniversary card instead. I started by drawing the hill on some white card stock then cut it out. After that I punched 2 small circles then cut the track which created the template. When I was done with that I used the template to cut the hill out of the pink argyle paper from Amy Jaz Designs new Follow Your Heart digital paper pack
Next I attached it to another piece of white cardstock where I stamped the sentiment from Damasks Designs then I added foam tape and attached it to more patterned paper in the kit. The penguins were die cut and stamped. I attached the boy penguin with a die cut heart in his hand to a penny sandwich that I added to the track. The girl penguin is waiting at the bottom of the hill with a pink flower in her hair. I also added some die cut clouds that I embossed with tiny dots. I received my release night order late last night just in time to add the pull here image from the new Movers and Shakers Sentiments Stamp Set under the penny to help keep the boy penguin in place until it is time for him to slide down the hill. Below is a quick video showing how it works.
I am very happy with how it came out. I hope you like it too. I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with on Nicole's blog now. I hope the rest of your weekend is great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
