Blue + White Shaker

Today's Ramblings: The weekend is over and it's back to work time - booooooo! Such a gloomy and cold weekend too - booooo! Oh well, what can you do? Craft then maybe?

I made #21 and #22 of the year for Christmas cards. I am trying to make 5 a month (but got side-tracked in January). Unfortunately, I ran out of time and had to make two of the same cards.

I started with Lenny Christmas {found here}. Though it looks like I put him in jammies, he is really supposed to look Santa-ish:

This is my first time making a "traditional" shaker card. I would do a few things different if I were to take on this challenge again.

At first I had so many beads that you could barely see the tip of Lenny's hat - so I had to open it up and dump out beads and they went flying everywhere!
Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; KI Memories papers; Recollections cardstock; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Circle and Label Three Nesties; Stampendous! Kaleidoscope glitter; Inkssentials Glossy Accents; Dress It Up buttons, Creatology beads; recycled acetate.

I made Lenny Christmas for the following Christmas challenges:


Have a lovely Monday!
