"Shake it " !!


Although they are quite fiddly to make I quite enjoy making Shaker Cards, so when I saw the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge I had to have a go.   I wanted to try something a little different this time so decided to use an old flower die that I have had for ages.  I have made two pockets for the sequins so that they shake easily in both flowers.

I am also going to add this to Challenge#5 over at Virginia's View which this month is Die Cuts!



We have had a "Fun Day" at school which involves lots of different activities, I had  the pleasure of taking 20 boys to the local angling society for a day of fishing.  The weather was fabulous and we all had a great day although I am really tired now so Its going to be a relaxing evening watching the football.

Have a great weekend!!

What a magical card Sally! So clever. Its all downhill to the holidays at school for us. I've 'closed' the school library and am packing away the bookstock that we borrow from the local authority. I'm tidying up and getting things ready for next year. Bliss! Jo x
