Dr. Seuss Imagination Blog Hop

“Think left and think right and think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”
― Dr. Seuss

Don't hop on pop but hop on top of the Dr. Seuss Blog Hop, where a bunch of talented people came up with their own interpretations of the wonderful imagination of Dr. Seuss. The skies the limit when you have an imagination like Dr. Seuss and talent like those in this hop. Our hop today is hostessed by Jearise in Lorby's World and that is where to begin if you've happened here by chance otherwise continue on my friend.

Jearise in Lorby's World has some fun blog candy for this hop. She has a stuffed Cat in the Hall and a fun Thing 1 and Thing 2 craft plus a $10 gift card to Michaels. I know they're silly but doesn't that follow in the steps of Dr. Seuss?

My granddaughter Lily will be celebrating her first birthday this weekend and she absolutely loves the Cat in the Hat . . . she hears the music on TV and starts wiggling and bobbing her head and then she starts clapping. When Jearise had suggested this hop, I knew right away that I wanted to participate and make Lily her First Birthday card. 

Now, first, please accept my apologies as my fibro and I are not on speaking terms and my hands are not working the way I would like for them to ... with that being said, as the old addage says, "Plan Ahead" .... gee, I wish I would have done that but I am still liking my card and hope you do too!

Recollections paper for card and inside

now - this was the first shot of the front of my card but after adding the Cat in the Hat not to mention fish, it was toooooo short and . . .

now with Sweet Treats Paper Stack added at the bottom 

...Thing One and Thing Two here stopped by to say ...

this will be a pop up card with the cat in the hat with the fish bowl on his hat .....can you visualize it???? I know I'm seeing it in my dreams!!!

VIOLA, through the magic of paper crafting we have:

Thank you for joining us because...

Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Your next stop is the very talented Ashley unless Thing One and Thing Two teach her a thing or two!

Just in case you would get stopped with the parade down at Mulberry Street, just hop on the Cat’s Thingamajigger because “the Cat in the Hat knows a lot about that”! Here’s the entire line-up just in case …. You never know what havoc lurks!!!

God Bless and Thank you

  21. I'm so sorry to hear you're having problems with your fibro. I am ALWAYS a last minute crafter because of this too. I always think, ok, I'll feel better & work on it 2moro, but then 2moro comes & I still feel crumby and so on & so on... I feel for you! Your card turned out very cute in spite of all that though! You did a fantastic job! Very cute! I have never made a pop-up card, but now I really want to, after seeing this! Thanks for the inspiration, Dear and get some rest if you can. Sending healing energy your way.
