I'm so excited to be involved in a super Saturated Canary and Action Wobbles Co-Hop.  If you've hopped to me from Midge then you're on the right track - if not and you want to start from the beginning of the hop then you need to go HERE.




You all know that I LOVE Krista's images at Saturated Canary, well I also love Action Wobbles too - they are perfect for adding a bit of movement to your card.

Here's the card I've made:


 The Saturated Canary image I've used is called Vintage Violet and I coloured her using my Copic Markers (of course!!!!)


Well, I guess you want to see my wobble LOL !!!  Well here it is

Aren't they fun and they're so easy to use too.  It's just a little adhesive spring that you use to attach your image to your card.


It doesn't even have to be an image, you could use it to wobble your die cuts or embellishments, or anything that takes your fancy.  So, I guess you want to know where to get your Action Wobbles, well you can buy them at The Scrapbooking Queen's Royal Castle Shoppe.
