Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

  VIDEO Episode 49

My Wednesday tip video is all about Shaker Cards today - it's the first in a series about WINDOW SHEETS! I'm super excited about this series - there are so many different ways to use Window Sheets - I can't wait to show many of them to you!

Here's the first type of shaker I made - an image die cut and raised with the shaker bits in the number.

Isn't this adorable??? I just know Molli is going to love it! And it will be accompanied by a big present...so of course she'll love it. I love these colors together (Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron & Peekaboo Peach)...so soft...perfect for a girl!

 Here's the inside - almost as spectacular as the front!

Dimensions:

  • Flirty Flamingo 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 & 3-3/4 x 5
  • Peekaboo Peach 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 

 

And here's the 2nd shaker - I cut an image out of the front of my card layer and added the shaker behind the entire layer. LOVE this color combo too - Elegant Eggplant, Lemon Lime Twist and Pacific Point.

I used the WORK OF ART in the background of the shaker card for the chevron images - super colorful! The embossing folder is the SWEETHEART folder - didn't think of that right? The circle cuts out the heart image and you can use it for anything this way.

 Dimensions:

  • Pacific Point 11 x 4-1/4 scored at 5-1/2
  • Lemon Lime Twist 4 x 5-1/4
  • Elegant Eggplant 3-3/4 x 5

Joke

The Goldberg Brothers - The Inventors of the Automobile Air Conditioner

Here's a little fact for automotive buffs, or just to dazzle your friends.
The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Maxwell, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946 , the temperature in Detroit was 97 F degrees.
 

The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.
 
Henry was curious and invited them into his office. 

They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car. 

They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 F degrees inside, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off almost immediately. 

The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent. 

The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,' on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

There was no way that Old man Ford was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords. 

They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.
 
And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show --

Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max -- on the controls.

oh Kelly, you and your jokes. That was a laugh out loud. Looking forward to watching your shaker video when I have time. I have the happy birthday die so might make a card as I watch you. Hope your hubby is recovering well from his knee surgery
