Shaker Plus

I have a small list of challenges that appealed to me.  Since I had time to play, I did!

Let's start with Just Add Ink #682; a Sketch, along with Time Out Challenges #253; Sparkly.

I literally was done with this card [45 min], laid it on my glass board - AND grrr there was ink on the glassboard, which naturally GOT ON MY CARD.  Sheesh - Can you say remake? When I went to bed, I decided I needed to change this card to a shaker.  So, I did that today, and because of the pretty "sparkly" shaker bits, this qualifies for the Time Out Challenge.  win-win.

I used my "won" Trinity Layered Pine Stencil Set to ink the tree.  I'm telling you, these layered stencils are very cool!  The end result is just fabulous.


I went on to join in a favorite challenge of mine, {PIN}spirational #308; red/green birthday, along with Simply Clean & Simple December Challenge; Anything Goes, Red & Green.

This month really is getting away from me.  Usually, I check my birthday card list the 1st of every month - pull the cards - date for mailing, and then [hopefully] get them mailed out in time.  Yeah, well that didn't happen, so I MISSED my great niece's milestone birthday.  [The inside will say sorry this is late.]  I'm so bummed I missed getting this to her on time.  But, I was able to make a red & green card for the challenges. So, there is that.

She is not foo foo at all, so a nice geometrical card works perfectly for her!

That's it for me today.  I might be back tomorrow as I have some fun ATC's to [make] share :).

Thanks for stopping by~

BOTH cards are beautiful and creative, what a great save on the first one, I love shakers and a clever design on the second one, I have to admit I am a bit addicted to the layered stencils myself!!

It was serendipitous, Vicki! It sure did want to be a shaker and it turned out beautifully!
Such a fun and fabulous 13th birthday card - I'm sure she was willing to continue the celebration, right?

I so sympathise with your ink-ciden, but it turned into a fabulous project. Love the shaker element. It's so clean as fresh but lots of lovely details. Thanks for playing along with our JAI sketch challenge, Vicki.

Very awesome designs on both of these! I'm always a sucker for a shaker so that would've worked for me too!
