I found this die on Amazon.  I had seen it used on Pinterest as a shaker card.  I had never made a shaker card before and had absolutely no idea how to do one.  I just did what made sense to me and it really didn't work out well.  I am still going to use it.  After I finished the card I looked on You Tube and found some much easier directions for making a shaker card.  That attempt should be coming up sometime soon.  I also forgot the gold ribbon to hang the ornaments on.  Oh well, next time!  Lots of senior moments going on lately!



I made these two Christmas cards using a pre-colored image from Jan's Digi Stamps.  I just couldn't resist the image.  The first card uses a Spellbinder's die.  The paper for both cards was in a pack ordered from Amazon.  These cards are my May entry for Splitcoast's Christmas Card Challenge.  I am officially done with homeschooling now so let the crafting begin!

My nephew James just earned his blue belt.  I thought it would be cute to design a birthday card that reflected his achievement.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored the image with Copic markers. and added some plastic starts for decoration.

First of My June Birthday Cards

This week's project was cleaning my 250+ Copic markers and refilling at least 80 of them.  What a chore that was.  My markers had gotten...
