Slide Thingy

Is it 'thingy' or 'thingie'?  Remember those plastic slide thingies that were all the rage many years ago?  I'm talking about these things:
They probably have some more official name than 'slide thingy' but I don't know what it is.  Besides being popular in plastic of all colors, they came in chipboard versions, cardboard versions, and pre-printed versions.  At one time I even had a punch that would punch this shape out but later got a sizzix-style die instead (since a punch that big was the kind you had to stand on to get to work).

I cleaned out my big desk drawer and found my stash of the plastic thingys so I thought I'd put one to use. Despite what the scan shows you this is actually an orange slide thingie with orange flowers, but you know, it looks okay here in red.

Often stamping fads come and go, but this one hasn't come and gone.  Maybe we can resurrect it!  Break out your slide thingies and make a card today!

Apologies for turning word verification back on.  It is just for a few days until the dude who spams me with 17 enhancement comments a day goes away.

The Fine Print: Plastic slide thingy by unknown, but man they were the rage. The local shop even had small stamps set aside "perfect for inside the slide."  Row of flowers stamp by Penny Black, greeting by Hero Arts, border punch by Martha.

Interesting about the thingies, which I'm not familiar with, unlike your butthole spam friend.
