I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND!

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something
I think you'll understand
When I say that something
I wanna hold your hand!!!

Hello everyone!! I am so excited that today is the first day of my Beatles week!
I am a die hard Beatles fan I decided to share that love with all of you by posting a project everyday based on one of their songs, leading up to a very special blog hop; starting right here on Monday Feb. 7 for my daughter Ashley's 11th Birthday!

Ok so now onto my project today.. with Valentines day coming up I just could not help myself, I had to make a card based on this song! This is a special card, because it is my first slider card!!


Here is the card closed

Notice how his hair is shiny? I used liquid laqcuor to give it that effect, so dapper lol!
Materials used:
  • Twinkle Toes Cart
  • PKS Princess Face assortment
  • PKS Boy Mates Face assortment
  • White Jelly roll pen
  • Red Tria Marker
  • Sakura Liquid Laqcuor {for his hair and their shoes}
  • Chalk
  • Paper is from and Old DCWV paper stack

    Oh did I mention? I am giving away a little blog candy all week!! Doesn't that sound yummy lol, today I am giving away a $10.00 gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps!!
To win all you have to do is:
  • Be a follower and
  • Leave a comment on this post!
I hope you will join me all week and help me make this the best birthday ever for Ashley!!!
