I’d like to start by apologizing for being MIA for the last week, I’ve been working on some pretty detailed cards, and I’m still working full time so my Craftroom time as been pretty limited. This is my last weekend of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog, it was so much fun, I can’t believe we are almost done with April (where did it go 🤔) on with the challenge, so apparently, according to the days of the year calendar April 25th is save the frogs day so this weeks challenge is to make a card with a frog 🐸 on it. I also decided I needed to make a “No Border” (at least on the sides) shaker card 🤯
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

I have been anxiously waiting to make this post. I had this idea for making a big sandcastle out of the “Woven Basket” die set and the “Castle Pop up” for a while now and I had to wait for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge to post it because you guest it, this weeks challenge is to make a card incorporating a sand castle, apparently its “Sandcastle Day” so get out there and hit the beach or craft room and make a sandcastle everybody.
If your wondering what I mean by “lake beach”, I grew up in a town on the North shore of Lake Huron, and although all the “Ocean beach” cards with their crabs and palm trees are quite lovely , I’m more likely to see frogs and cattails near the beaches I’m used to, so this card is dedicated to my home town of Blind River. Miss you like crazy especially when it’s this hot out.
So this little cutie actually dances in the waves, as you can see from the photo he moves from side to side (he has a pendulum type mechanism). This style of card is a little thick for mailing but he is sure to put a smile on someone’s face. To see a card with a similar mechanism check out “Snappy Birthday” from August 11/18.
