Pretties Wednesday: Move it! Move it!

Two weeks ago Charmaine challenged the Prettie Girls to make an interactive card, in other words, something that moves! I decided to make a double slider card cause they are so neat! Pull on the top part and it slides out... AND... a panel pops out the bottom too!

Guess what? Now it is my turn to issue a challenge for the Prettie Girls. Hmm... whatever shall I make them do? Heh heh heh. Well since the weather outside is so cold I think we need to warm things up inside! I wanna see what they can do with a heat tool! Bring on the embossing, faux metal, polyshrink... whatever! As long as it involves using heat to make your card! And no, burning a picture of me in the fire doesn't count!!! :) Muhahaha!!!

In the meantime wanna see what the rest of the Prettie Girls are doing for this week's challenge? Take a look at their blogs at:
