~ From Our Family to Yours Shaker Card ~

Image
Good morning!  Today I decided to shake things up a bit...  ** bad pun...** by posting a shaker card.  I used Our Daily Bread Designs'Noel Border Die and Christmas Note stamp set...

I used a couple of nesting dies from the Pierced Rectangles Die set to create my window and cut my acetate.  For this project, I used a plain transparency...  the kind you can pick up at your local box or office supply stores...  I stamped the sentiment with StazOn directly on the transparency and nested a few sequins between my two clear panels.  I also used a bit of DP inside to add interest...  specifically from ODBD's Christmas Paper Collection 2014.
Here are the October release items you see...


and a few old favorites...


Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings...

So here we are at the beginning of another work week.  It is hard to believe that Monday is already here!  And I noticed over the last few days my favorite "movie" channel advertising a countdown to Christmas!!!  Can it be?  Are we really that close to the most wonderful time of the year????  
If my craft room is any indication, YES!!!  I have stacks of Christmas papers, stamps and dies just waiting to be put to good use!  So over the coming weeks, I plan on rolling out a plethora of projects for your enjoyment!  *** At least, I hope you enjoy them ***  :-)

~ Oh, Holy Night ~

Today's post will be very short.  I do have a card to share.  The last few days I have found my mind elsewhere...  I am sure your thoughts and prayers are like mine...  focused on those in the path of Hurricane Matthew.  We have friends and family located on the coasts of Florida and North Carolina.  I can't imagine what these folks are going through.  I do know that our heavenly Father is our anchor during life's storms.  I pray he places His arms around all of those in the path of this terrible storm. 
And today's card featuring the new ODBD dies,  Holy Night Die and Noel Border Die...
