OWH Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop!

MemDay2013BlogBanner

Hello Everyone! I am beyond THRILLED to be a part of this BLOG HOP!  For oh so many reasons! Just to name a couple:

#1 – I am SO thankful to our service men and women for the sacrifices that they AND their families make to keep us FREE & SAFE!

#2 – This is my very FIRST blog hop!  Or at least the very first one I’ve ever participated in by sharing my work.

My card is based on Sketch Challenge #152:

And here is my shaker card featuring the *NEW* Lawn Fawn Puffy Star Stackable Dies & Neat & Tangled Sequins! Oh and you can thank Pretty Pink Posh for my sequin / shaker card addiction! 😀

Totally Inspired by Pretty Pink Posh!

Hello Everyone!  Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not much of a sleeper.  I usually go to sleep around midnight or later, ONLY to wake up at 5 am.  Now, I’m NOT a morning person and I think that in itself is the reason I get up so early.  I just need an hour OR more or quiet, by myself, doing nothing but what I want to, which is… drinking coffee… listening to the news in the background… and catching up on all my crafty friends by spending some time in BlogLovin!

This morning was no different, except for a card that really caught my eye… and a video to go along with it!  So much so that I couldn’t wait to get home and try it myself!  It was a shaker card made by Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh and the post is right here!  You really need to check it out.  It’s beautiful and well… So is Pretty Pink Posh!  😀  One of the sweetest crafters on the interweb I know!

So, here is my version of the Shaker Card, made for my Mom for Mother’s Day.  I’m sure she will love it!  Once again I used the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month – May 2013.  It really is a nice kit.
