First try at a Shaker Card

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and a super Black Friday experience! I actually succeed at getting my husband out and about on Black Friday. I admit it wasn't at the crack of dawn but we did manage to make it out by 8AM. He went to Lowes and dropped me off at Micheal's (that was rather reckless of him don't you think?). I was pretty proud of myself tho. I only spent $51.00 and the majority of that was in Christmas decorations. LOVED that 30% off your entire order coupon. That was FUN!!
I haven't had much tme to craft this week but I did manage to sneek in a project I have wanted to do for sometime. I have never made a shaker card so I tried my hand at one using the window from  the Christmas
Cartridge. I used to much tinsel glitter in the window I think, I always tend to over-do! Aside from that I was pretty happy with the outcome and can't wait to try it again.Maybe next time a snow globe.

I had my "step" Granddaughter, Arielle, over for a crafty sleep over this weekend. She saw the video of my new craft-room and couldn't wait to get her hands on all the goodies. She had a very productive day and made this great Fall card:

She also made a real sweet birthday card for her twin brother. We will post that next time. She loved working with the "frosting" technique!
Would love to hear about all of the bargains you all found on Friday. I wonder what great things will be found on Cyber Monday??
Until next time...Happy Crafting!
