A Quickie Shaker

It's really gorgeous out side, gardening? No, well, there's still time! I hope this isn't the actual Summer and we have more of this to come. We ended up going for a nice walk along the beach, that way I can nip into the craft shop on the way back to the car. But it was closed! I only wanted photo glue. I didn't use too much glue on this card. At this point the phone rings....It's John.... Hubby "Come and get me.... (He'd gone out in the little red van) "It's stopped...again, I need a tow." he says, "I'm not far away." So that's what I've been doing this afternoon...why do men do it?? He knows the little red van is old and sick and doesn't like going more than a mile from home...
Now where was I??? Oh yes, just a quickie, as I'm waaaay behind with my makes. Very simple. Cover card with desired paper. These papers were a freeby of 36 sheets, from 'Quick Cards Made Easy designed by Nel Whatmore. I made the shaker frame from my Nestabilities, glued the paper to card~ (Crunchy Nut Cornflake packet coming in handy again!) ran it through my BigShot and for the first time I think I can see a bit of embossing too! Fixed the smaller frame to the larger frame, added a couple of Penny Black Stickeroos and hey-presto! A little shaker card.
This other little topper shaker, is waiting to go on another card. Both the 'inside' papers, melons and spiders, are from Pink Petticoat.
Puppy sitting all day tomorrow so catch you all later! (I'll take my laptop!)
