Preview Week Day 6 and BLOG CANDY!!

Woo Hoo!! Today is Day 6 of Preview Week and it's my turn to give away BLOG CANDY!!  I am super excited to be on the Design Team for the Spring Collection 2015 from Create with Connie and Mary. The new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration Catalog are chock full of great products and we are here to give you great ideas for using them!!  Let me show you my card then I'll tell you more!

I'm sure that anyone that follows my blog knows how much I love shaker cards and confetti, so I had to do one for today with a critter!!  The Cheerful Critters set is just so cute I knew it would be great as a shaker.


The inspiration came from the December Paper Pumpkin kit that I have made a bunch of cards with.  It was super easy to recreate using the On Film framelits and the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper.  The bear from Cheerful Critters was stamped and colored with blendabilities then fussy cut and glued to the front of the shaker.  A bunch of stars from the Confetti Star Punch and the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack made up the confetti. I glued a couple in place so the shaker never looks empty.  A super cute way to say Happy Birthday, don't you think?!

I really like shaker cards, but for some reason am hesitant to make them -- other than "snow" in the background, it is hard for me to think about what is appropriate for a shaker. Thank you for more ideas.
