My Favorite Things - November Birthday Project Challenge!

Hello friends!

This one of my most favorite challenges of all the challenges that MFT has to help inspire your creativity!  And this month's Birthday Challenge is no exception!  This month we're challenged to create a birthday design that includes a shaker or slider element.  For this, I couldn't resist pulling out the new Snow Buddies Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  I used a sentiment from the Ready, Set Snow Stamp Set, which was perfect for my project!

So, you know I had to pull out my fave Double Slider Loop Slots Die-Namics to create a slider element.  And I'm obsessive about hiding as much of the mechanism as I can.  So, I adhered a small magnet to the acetate loop and on the back of the image to move that adorable little dachshund back and forth like he's sliding across the snow bank. Here's what it looks like when I pull the pull tab.

And here's a video action shot as I pull the tab back and forth.

I'm so excited about how this turned out (I was inspired to use the magnet by my teammate, Laura - she's so amazingly clever!) and can't wait to use magnets in some of my future projects!  I've listed and linked all of the MFT Products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other outstanding projects that my teammates have created for this month's Birthday Challenge!  And while you're there, why not link up your own slider or shaker element birthday project of your own! If you do, you'll be eligible to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique!

That's it for me today, friends!  I'll be back again next week with more crafty stuff!  Thanks for stopping by today, and until next time, have a great day!
