Wow am I happy the weekend is here, and for us here in Canada 🇨🇦 it is a long weekend 😀. I was able to take the time this week to play along with this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. Apparently September is “Shake Month”, technically this relates to milkshakes however for the challenge this week we were to create a shaker card. Now I’ve made a lot of shaker cards so I decided to do something I haven’t tried before and I made a rainbow shaker card I was inspired by a CARD I made a few months ago . I do not have a dieset that cuts out all the windows I did have to do this myself so check out my details below to see how I pulled this off

I think this gnome is so adorable, and once I saw Karen Burnistons Video tutorial on making this cutie I knew I had to give it a go. The Surprise Ball pop up mechanism is what makes this so card so much fun

Here is a flashback Valentines card that I made my Hubby a few years ago. It is a super cute card that I can’t take full credit for as it was inspired by a card that was made by Jennifer McGuire but I’d like to think that the changes that I made help make this card my own 🙂
This card was part of a card swap that I was a part of, I had created 10 of these if I remember correctly. I thought the window feature gave a fun element to this card especially since the cardstock in the inside is a different colour it adds colour to the butterfly when the card is closed.
This card is my most favourite card of the year, or possibly ever. This card is for my sister and TODAY is her birthday. This card started off in my head as a fairly simple idea using this “Off to see the Wizard” stamp set ( the witch theme is an inside joke). Then I thought the rest of the characters should pop out the middle, then I thought wouldn’t it be fun to have the Witch of the West be able to pop in and out of the scene, then I thought the Good Witch should be in her bubble, then I thought I should add more glitter…….and more glitter……. and maybe some more glitter……………..and maybe some poppies……….and hey should the poppies have glitter?…….. my mind is often a very chaotic place when I’m card making. Lol
The glitter is hard to see but it’s there, and there is lots of it……..all of the yellow brick road, the ruby slippers, Tin Man, the bubble, the Good Witches dress, wand and crown, the Lions mane, the Scarecrows hair (not sure why I just thought it needed a little something 😆), and the Emerald City.
