Summery Bright Christmas!!

I had fun picking some summery colours and Christmas paper for this August Challenge at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round. I think this is Holiday Card #56 so I still have a ways to go, I lost my ticker tape and haven't put it back on the blog yet. I won a prize for July at Christmas Cards all Year 'Round that was exciting. I'm so glad they have the blog started up again.  Here is my offering for the challenge.


I made a cute Shaker card (again)  although I need to put a sentiment on the front yet, I have limited supplies at the cottage. I didn't want to gussy it up too much I wanted the window to be the focal point. The stamp I used is from a Christmas set from Stampin'up which is long retired but this image is perfect for the window card. I used clear and blue beads in the shaker.


Blue and clear beads in the window.


Finished inside using a left over scrap of patterned paper and a Stampin'up verse

I want to enter this in:

I love shaker cards, Barb! This is adorable - great idea to use a window die - must remember this so I can CASE you! Guess what... I had two different people contact me out of the blue this week asking if they could buy any of my Fluffles stamps. I used to post my cards at Splitcoast before I started my blog and they contacted me through there. Very odd! Maybe it was the same person from two different emails, who knows. I declined of course! Could never part with them! But it did spark my curiosity and I went to Pinterest and searched on Fluffles. There are a gazillion of them that I've not seen before - I have 28, but I counted at least 25 that I don't have. The one lady said she was missing five from her collection. That's a lot of Fluffles! Had no idea there were so many! Enjoy your day!
