Hi and thanks for stopping by! I feel like I've been running in circles since I got home from vacation this past weekend. Yesterday I spent 5 hours at the car dealer having some service done. Hard to believe - especially when they require you to have an appointment. They blamed it on all the recalls, but wow - it sure would have been nice to have a head's up and maybe just drop the car off instead of sitting for hours. The service manager just kept popping by saying "we're still working on it - shouldn't be much longer". I'm all caught up on the talk shows now and am ready to share celebrity gossip! And I have a new found appreciation for Candy Crush! Just what I needed LOL!!!
A new challenge begins today at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. We present a new challenge for you on the first Wednesday of every month. This time you are kindly asked to create a card with a window. You can die cut, punch, or even hand cut a window with a blade... and then what to put inside said window? Well an image, or a sentiment, how about nesting a die inside that window? Me? I decided to make a shaker card. To add to the fun Mary (the owner of Serendipity) asked us to CASE (copy and share everything) a fellow DT member. I hope it's ok that I reached into the vault for this one. I saw this tag that SSDT Alumni Cathy Weber made a while back and pinned it onto my secret Pinterest board "Things That I'm Smitten With". I love the white on kraft, lace and pearls. Here's Cathy's design....
I embossed the image in white on two pieces of kraft card stock. I die cut one and then layered it on top of the second, creating a pocket with adhesive foam tape. I filled the shaker with pearls, buttons, sequins. I got lucky and found the same lace Cathy used, and some satin ribbon too. Here's my version of Cathy's tag.
