A Thanking We Will Go!

Hello, and welcome to the "A Thanking We Will Go" blog hop!  If you haven't met me yet, my name is Shelley and welcome to my blog!  You may have arrived here from Nicole's blog, but if you just happened upon this you can also start from the very beginning with Jessica.

Today I thought I would share with you a little project I have been working on to share with my friends and family during this holiday season.  Apple-Slider Cards!  The Stamps are my own original drawings and now available at Shelley Bean Stamps!  I colored them with Copic Markers (which I adore)




I put together a little video tutorial to show you how you can make your own Apple-Slider cards too.  I had so many goof-ups while making this silly video....at the very least you might be entertained if you enjoy watching someone make an idiot out of themselves!  Ah well...it's all in the fun of crafting!

 
Okay...now it's off to the next stop along this hop.  Please pop over to Sigrid and see she has to show you. 
If you find yourself lost along the way...here is a full list of the stops along this hop!
Happy Thanksgiving!!
