Another Slider Card...

Our week has been a hectic usual. We've been helping our neighbors get ready for their move to Kentucky. They leave tomorrow! :o( I'm so sad to see them go, but hope to visit them soon. :o)

I made a few things to put in the "going-away" basket that I gave to them. Of course, I forgot to take photos before I took the basket over there...I'm having a loony day. LOL! I did take photos of one of the slider cards that I put in the basket. This was so difficult to photograph...guess it was all the glitter I used. Had to make it sparkle!! :o)

This is the outside of the slider card...

& this is the candy bar inside the slider. I decided to wrap this one. The white paper is the reverse side of the green. (DCWV) I made this set in PSP...the graphics are from PCCrafter. I just added a little sparkle to them after printing. :o)

It was a good weekend for my AUburn Tigers!! War Eagle!! I love it when we win!! :o)

Still haven't played with my new Cricut much. I did cut an envelope & card...they are so cute. Now to finish them. Maybe tonight if I have time.

Friday, was my sweet hubby's birthday. Happy Birthday Honey!! :o) I couldn't decide whether to buy a cake or make one...decided Friday morning that I would make one. I made him an Earthquake Cake. I don't like cooking very much & I don't usually share recipes, but this one is so yummy that I thought I would share it. It is definitely not a pretty cake, but YUMMO!! Let me know if you try it and how you like it. I will be making this one again!!

Earthquake Cake Recipe:

1 box German chocolate cake mix
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 cup flaked coconut
