Hello, everyone!!!  And welcome to another new follower!  Very happy to have you in the family!!!  I hope all's well! 

Well, I did it again!!!  I'd been such the busy beaver preparing a project for Brenda's birthday blog hop which I mistakenly thought was today when, in fact, the hop date is the 8th which is Saturday.  I just don't seem to have any sense for time or days,..lol!!!  Is it just me?  You'd think I'd keep up with that, particularly when my birthday is the following Sunday... lol!!!  I'm really going to have to work on my internal clock and calendar!!!

Anyway, as I'd invited you to join me today for a project, I did want to have something available for you, so I prepared this little card.  I believe it's called a tunnel card but I'm not sure about that but here's a picture of the card front and the inside:

The effect of the card front was done by layering.  I cut the octogon shaped windows on each layer 1/4 inch smaller progressively and layered them; I used 4 layers.  The depth of the tunnel is dependent on the size of the initial window, the number of layers, and the size/measurements of each window layer.  Here is a view of my layers:

This was really a very simple and fun card to do!  I hope you like it!

Well, I'm off rushing now to get my DT project together for Sheila's blog on Thursday (tomorrow) and I'm absolutely sure of the day this time!!!  LOL!!!   Because I was so focused on thinking I had to have the blog hop project ready today, I have no clue what I'm going to do for my DT project yet but I'll come up with something...lol!!!  Of course, I'll present my DT project here too, so hopefully you'll stop by here if you don't make it over to Sheila's!  I hope I do see you all!

Again, the hop is on this Saturday, October 8.  All details and participant information will be available on the Birthday Wishes Blog Hop post on Saturday.  You want to come along for the inspirating projects, fun, and great blog candy!!!

Hugs, and...

I'll be seeing you!

Hi Audrey,
Glad to see you up and running again, and oh my what a masterpiece you have to share with us today. I love the shape and the colors you have chosen here. You have such an explosive mind for those final little details, that is what makes all of your creations so special.... He,he, I understand you perfectly with the mix up on dates, as I also find myself doing the exact same thing. Can't wait to see your next awesome creation.

Hugz, xx

...OK this might just help you, because your post helped me....talk about clock... I totally completely forgot to create my post for SASL... Oh yeah! ...why at 11PM am reading an email she sent me at 6AM asking if everything was OK... and that exact day I was thinking on what was I going to come up with for the following Thursday (3rd Thursday of mo, right?)...to me and my mind the 15th sounded like the second Thur (worst part, it was written in my calendar!!))) talk about embarrassing!!... Lucky she is so easy going and forgiven that I think she still likes me! Love it when you visit my blog!! Hugs, Gaby
