My First Shaker Card!!!!

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone! OMGOSH.... It's been a week
since my last post. So sorry about that... but work has me busy like a bee!
I'm too tired when I get home from work to even think about crafting...
I'll have a 3 day weekend this week due to Memorial day, so maybe if
I have time I can craft away.... I know cleaning my house will be first....
darn house! LOL But hopefully I can fit in some craft time.... It's official....
Summer has started around here so that means I'll be working a lot... Not a fan
of that but it pays the bills! Right! :O) I still have several cards that I made
that I haven't shared with you, so I thought now is as good a time as any! :o)
I know Mother's Day has past.... but I wanted to share this
card I made for my Mom! The card design is from the
Silhouette store.... and as I was looking at it...
I thought??? HUMMMMM???? I wonder if I can
turn this into a Shaker card? Mind You --- I've
NEVER made one before! I should have watched a video
first --- But I didn't... I thought NAAAA --- I'll just wing it!
 So this is the final product... I do need to work on my shaker
card skills... but I really like how this turned out....
The designer paper is Digital of course.... :o)
Sentiment is computer generated...
And the best part is --- My Mom Really liked it! HA! :o)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back this weekend
since I'm a guest designer on My Sheri Crafts! YAY!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!!

Super shaker card! I love the look of the banner paper through the window. Just perfect for the background!

Enjoy your busy days at work. Just remember that they pay for your paper crafting addition!!

Theresa, your shaker card is gorgeous, sweet, and simply delightful! So clever to turn this cut file into a shaker card! I love your papers, the gorgeous butterfly, and the goodies within the shaker. :o) Beautifully done! I hope you have a blessed and beautiful holiday weekend!
