Tinker Brown, Penny Black Shaker

In between chasing my fish and taking their pictures (they smiled...see below!!) I've been blog hopping. Have you been over to Tinker and Co yet? This is what I made with the lovely Freebie Papers. Aren't they great! They're called Vintage Dad, but I think they could be used for anyone or anything. Of course, I had to make another shaker card. Don't forget there's a tutorial at the bottom of the blog for those of you who think it's too fiddly. No it's not! It's easy! I teamed the papers up with a couple of Penny Black Stickeroos, some brads, a flower made with three, no four Woodaware punches and some lovely spotty brown ribbon from my stash. I also did some swirls with a glue pen and added some gold glitter. The Happy Birthday is a clear stamp from Papermania. I've added some tiny stars to the beads... wish I'd put more in now, but they kept rolling about! Now, as I said before, I've been blog hopping...and found two challenges one over on Saturday Challenge to include spots and stripes! Fancy that! And the other on Creative Card Crew for Pokadots. So I think I might enter this card into their challenges. Yes? Okay! The inside? oh yes...I made that with the odd bits left over and did a bit of doodling to make the squares look like pressies, then scanned the finished page, saved it to my computer so, when I'm in a hurry and in need of a brown insert to a card, I'll have one already made. Now then, this is between you and me...looking into my Crystal ball I can see into the future and sometime in August I will find another challenge blog for this card! The Challenge will to be to make a brown card for Dad and have some metal on it somewhere. Well...I thought (or will think) this is most definitely brown and those brads are metal and the papers are called Vintage Dad and I will be giving this card to my dad when it's his birthday, so, if you're reading this now wait til August and then pop over to Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenges and join in! You've been forewarned so you'll have plenty of time to make a card!!
If you have scrolled down today, you'll find a 'Clip it' from Sylvia's blog, she's been playing with shrink plastic don't forget these 'clip its' are from other people's blogs (It's alright, I asked first!) and if you're feeling very energetic, and scroll a bit further down you'll see I've been awarded two Awards from the lovely Josefa Laura. Please pop over and see her lovely blog!
I was hoping I'd have time tonight to give out some Awards, but Fire Fox or was it Blogger (!?!) has already crashed once tonight, so I won't tempt fate! Be back tomorrow with the Awards! Right...I'm off to Saturday Challenge first! Thank you for stopping by!

    Love shaker cards, but I never get round to making them. I usually use glittery confetti, but I think these beads look better. Love your DPs & those Stickeroos are too cute! Thanks for joining us at Creatalicious Challenges.
