Birthday Wishes Blog Hop

Brenda from Creativity is Only a State of Mind is in her own words, "turning the corner to 40-something," so  Happy Birthday Brenda!  If you're coming from Audrey's you're on the right track and just a little over half way done.  If you're joining in from the dashboard make sure you hope all the way around (all 14 stops) or you can start at the beginning with Rhonda right HERE.
Brenda is offering a special treat for someone who leaves a comment at all the stops today so be sure and leave a comment at all 14, and so as not to hold you up any more & get you on your way here's my project for today.

It's a "partial pop-up, slider, gift card holder,"  how's THAT for a name?   This was hard to photograph, but the cake slides out and is popped up just a little.  This is my first one to make, and I'm still working on a few minor tweeks to it, so if anyone is interested when I make another and work out the kinks I'll post a tutorial... that is if anyone is interested.

For letting me know you dropped by today I have a couple of cute little 3-D Halloween embellishment packs to give to someone.  I want to get this in the mail ASAP to the winner so I will draw the name on Monday night.
Now it's on to see what cuteness the second Kathy has created and if you get lost here's the list of everyone.

Again Happy, Happy Birthday Brenda, and a Happy Weekend to all of you!
