Good Morning Everybody!

Good morning! Hope your day's going well. It was supposed to snow last night and this morning and Danielle thought that she was going to have a snow day ~ but Mother Nature played a trick on her! No snow. Of course they say that our temps are going to drop today - I think into the teens, and there is still a chance. But she's already gone to school.

This will be a quick post today too. I've got to get to work on a project I am making for my cousin. I want to make some type of book for her - I just don't know what yet.
So, how about a card?
And first let me say sorry for the fuzzy picture. Either my eye's are playing tricks or I need a new camera. Maybe Danielle will let me use the one I got her for Christmas? HA! That would be a no.

The image is from ALota Rubber Stamps. I used to buy their images from stamp shows in California, they are kinda fun! The base card is Pixie Pink and I layered that with Chocolate Chip and some DP from Paper Salon. I colored the image with pencils and gamsol and sponged Pink Passion ink around the edges. There is stickles on the hearts to make it "pop" a little bit. I added a length of ribbon before I adhered the computer generated sentiment and I was complete.

How long has it been since I made a shaker card? My goodness, I think forever!! Nothing went right with this card. I knew what I wanted, but it just would not work! I think that I punched paper after paper and made my scrap stack GROW.

The base card is Real Red. I layered it with Pink Piroquette that I stamped with TAC's Little Curls in Real Red ink. The circle scallop punch I stamped with a stamp from TAC's I Remember When... with white ink. I used my coluzzle to cut out the center piece and added a piece of acetate to the cut out. Behind the layer I added my foam tape to keep the confetti inside the circle. I added a length of ribbon that I found on clearance from Big Lots at Christmas - look how it matches the swirls, kinda cool huh? The sentiment is from TAC's Soul Kisses set stamped in black ink on Real Red cs attached to Basic Black.

Well, that's it for today. I will come up with something to show you tomorrow!

Have a great day!
