Another attempt at a shaker card!

Happy Sunday!! hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!! Friday was such a wonderful crafting day for me!! finally, YAY! LOL... i managed to finish 3 cards and a baby album... wow, that was a lot for me in a day... hehe! the day ended with a few burnt fingertips but i'm still surviving... =D

also got to blurf on Friday and pick up some inspirations from some GFs of mine... which helped a lot trying to create... had to finish up 2 graduation cards (that i failed to take a picture of since i was in a hurry to get it in the mail) and a challenge card...

today i share with you my challenge card for La-La lands Weekly Wednesday Challenge #40 - Nestie Shaped Card.... this challenge is issued by DT memeber 1LuvnMama.... Thanks sweetie, i don't think i've ever used a nestie as the base of my card... =D here it is...

i wanted to use a nestie that would give me room to create so i used the square scalloped nestie... after blurfing and checking out my GF Joy's creations, she inspired me to try and do a shaker card... Joy is really the shaker queen and all her shaker creations are wonderful... check her out... i've done a shaker before and i don't do them often so it was nice to try again... always pick up my mistakes after doing one... with this one, i used the wrong kind of beads, it's not really small enough to get a full shaking effect but it will do... i used Lala Mermaid, one of the new stamps i just purchased from Lala Land... and cut her to fit into the window area... although you cannot tell, i used wave DP for the card... also used the sun stamp from Dandelion Designs and punched some fishes to add to the framing... and of course, ribbon!

do you all like it??? i have to work on the shaker technique a little more but i do like the way this creation turned out... my concept was there... LOL!

hubby and some friends want to go fishing today... and the kids are asking for some beach time... so i guess that's on our agenda... so like yesterday, i don't think i'll have any crafting time unless i get my buns moving now... hmmm, yah, i don't think so... i'm still a little sleepy... hehe! i'll share with you the photo album i put together on Friday tomorrow... so come and check that out too... it was really hard not to add frilly girly things like lace, but i think it came out well otherwise... for a boy anyway... Hope you all have a wonderful rest of today and i'll check you out soon!!
