Christmas is for kids adventure

Last month, Terry asked if we would be starting Christmas cards at Card Buffet - I know she likes them best, so added one in August.  Last week, Tom asked whether I'd started making Christmas cards (Yes! in January!) and how many I had.  I thought I had about 30, half as many as we'll mail.  Wrong!  There are less than 20 in the box - time to get busy!  When I saw Festive Friday offered a kid's theme challenge, I thought of my grand- nieces and nephews - some of them are old enough to appreciate cards (a little).  I started by making a slider card:
stamp sets - Kidoodles (retired), Mr. Twigster (retired); Open Sleigh (retired); ink - Cherry Cobbler; Stampin' Write markers - Certainly Celery (retired), Blush Blossom (retired), Lucky Limeade (retired), Riding Hood Red (retired), Cherry Cobbler; card stock - Real Red, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Naturals White; designer series paper - Festival of Prints (retired); punches - Word Window, Modern Label, 1-3/8" circle, Stampin' Dimensionals, pennies
Maybe I'll send this one to the youngest child in the family, who won't notice what a bad job I did of coloring. {sigh}  Although most of the supplies I used are retired, there's no reason you couldn't make this card with current papers and images - the mechanics are the same and you can find instructions for the slider portion here.

This is so fun - I love the movement and interactive-ness (see me making words up here?! lol!) of it! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Festive Friday!
