As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I do love shaker cards and when I saw THIS CARD by the lovely Kelly Alverez it gave me the idea to make a star shaped one for a change :-)

I used Simon's Soft Navy Cardstock for the base card and I just love thi DIY Paper pack, the cork paper looks real and matches the real cork stickers perfectly. I added some Twinklets Diamond Dust in with the sequins as this makes a great shaker sound,,,, it is quite heavy, a bit like granulated sugar and is perfect for shaker cards.

I used a Silhouette Cameo to write the sentiment.

So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!

ABC Christmas 'M' for Mail Challenge

Oh my goodness !! did you know that there are only 182 days left to Christmas !!  better get a wiggle on if we're gonna be ready in time eh !! :-)
I must admit, it does feel a bit strange swatting off the mosquitos while writing up a Christmas post,,, being eaten alive I am ,,,  but it is nice to have a boxful of cards ready and no last minute rush :-)

The theme for then next couple of weeks on the ABC Christmas Challenge is

'M' for Mail 
(of course it must be Christmas too ,,, don't forget that bit ;-))

As you can see I made a card and coordinating envelope ,,, makes it that bit extra special :-)

I have used this Simon's Exclusive Layered Tree die so many times, one of my all time faves ,, so easy and so effective, great for mass production ! :-)

I  used a Simon's Exclusive Postage Stamp Die to cut the paper and  a falling stars stencil together with some embossing paste, coloured with distress ink and I added some glitter bead gel too ,,, lovely and sparkly IRL.

I must admit ,,, I quite like this one ,,,,, 

Thanks for looking :-) I hope you will join in with the challenge ,,, the more the merrier and all that ;-)

Just noticed I have a few flowers that need dead heading ,,,, lol  oops :-)
