Congratulations - Wedding Shaker

Hello fellow bloggers! I have managed to make it into my craft room a little over the last week and I have decided that although I want to continue blogging and sharing, I am going to take a break from the time consuming process of explaining the card or listing all the supplies. I would like to speed up the process a bit to help focus on my goal of utilizing time in a more productive way. Needless to say I do appreciate the sharing aspect and if there is anything you would like to know, please ask and I will certainly share details.

On that note, I would like to share a Wedding shaker card that I created for a fellow colleague who got married in Australia over the Christmas Break! She is just such a fun young girl and when I saw this card on Pinterest, I knew it was perfect for her and I certainly scraplifted the whole idea and changed very little. Thanks so much for the inspiration Nichol Magouirk! What you don't see in my card - as I was negligent on taking a photo - is that I turned it into a trifold card with a gift certificate holder. This allowed for all of our staff to sign the card and send our best wishes!

This card allowed me to try out my minc machine and I have to admit . . . I LOVE IT!!! Like others, there may be a lot of foiling in my future! I have noticed, however, it is super difficult to photograph shiny projects without getting a dark reflection of yourself or your camera. I found holding it up on an angle away from me helped with that process.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps Challenges - anything goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - something old; something new - The minc foiling is new for me, all the rest of my supplies I have had on hand for awhile
The Outlawz - CAS Challenge group - something sparkly

Thanks for stopping in!
