Shaking with Excitement...


Hey everyone!

Happy Saturday! Woo hoo...the weekend is HERE! I have a few plans, but nothing crazy busy for once in a weekend which is WAY nice. The DH is off (which is RARE on weekends), the kiddos want to relax and have movies and popcorn to keep warm, I am working w/ my Lushies tonight, and Sunday will catch up with a friend.

You know what that means? There is STILL TIME in between to STAMP! Yippee!

I have a card for you today that I'm kind of proud of...well, I mean, I'm USUALLY proud of my cards, but this one required some extra TLC but was well worth it, I think! A few days ago, my amazingly talented and sweet friend Taylor made THIS card. I love snowglobes and have been quite into the shaker card technique again this winter ever since I found those cute Hero Arts sequined snowflakes...

...anyway, I was DETERMINED to create a snowglobe card with my own two hands and voila! I did it! I LOVE this cute set from Pink Papery Studios, called Catch a Falling Snowflake. Isn't it sweet? I had a great time cutting out these sweet little images and popping them up on dimensionals, creating a 3D effect inside the snowglobe. Now, if only I had the time and energy to make 50 more of these...ha!

Warm wintery hugs,
Jess :)

That card is FABULOUS! I'm seriously loving it! Q: How are you going to do this week's challenge? I don't have photoshop so I can't create p.p. using one of the images.... any thoughts?
