Full Front Shaker Card

Hey friends - how are you doing?

I'm doing good, I've been creating a lot but haven't had time to photograph much! I recently made this full front shaker card - what a learning experience! It was for my boyfriend who turned 6, 😁, and loves elephants. There are 5 elephants in the shaker front and then the 6th is on the front. He also wears blue glasses, so I made sure to include those on each elephant. What I didn't realize was, with the the glossy accents on the glasses, they were 'thicker' and kinda stuck together, didn't shake as much as I would have hoped.😐


It's okay; he loved it and that's all that matters! The full front shaker pockets are from Tonic Studios; they are super easy to use; I'm anxious to try them again!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you are doing well!




Hello, old friend!

 Hey - I remember you, do you remember me? 😁

I won't get into the details but on December 31 the lovely Covid finally found me and beat the living shizzz out of me! I was sick for an entire month; I FINALLY turned the corner January 31. Once I was getting well, the fatigue was brutal; I would go to bed as early as 7:30 pm some nights. It was rough; I hope anyone else that gets it, has a MUCH easier time than I did.

Therefore, I have not been creating BUT I did set some creative goals this year and I want to try to complete them. One was a birthday card for our son, our youngest baby turned 22 this year - MY FAVORITE NUMBER!! But goodness, I feel old!!

His fave color is orange and has been since he was itty bitty, so I made sure to make his card about as orange as possible! I used some new products from Concord & 9th (links below), several Distress Oxide inks. He might eat orange sherbet for ice cream, but it's not his first choice - but seriously, how could I choose anything else? 😃 Some stripes of various orange card stock (Taylored Expressions, TE), brown splatters, glossy accents ,candy corn glitter (TE), and that's it. 

BTW, he loved it! 💯 Thanks for popping in; here's hoping you are doing well!
