Hello: A SECOND shaker card!!...Paper Smooches: Anything Goes, Sequin Shaker Blog Hop, Cure for the Monday Blues #14

Hello again!

Well, if I surprised myself with a first shaker card, as shown in my previous post, you can imagine how shocked I am that a second one made an appearance!  Who knows what may happen next!!  Stenciling?

Because home-made pizza duties await (perfect Saturday evening meal always, but especially so on this cloudy, snowy day...yes.. I wrote the 's' word again...), I'll be super quick.

Before I share my card and where it's headed, a huge THANK YOU, to Paulina! Your amazing inspiration and outstanding tutorial have converted me from my "no-way, never will I make one of these" stance to making two in one day! I think I'm hooked!!

So, Sequin Shaker #2 is jaunting off to Sequin Shaker Blog Hop

The 'images' were inspired by the wonderful blacks, reds and 'donut colour' found in "Neutral's Nook" over at Taheerah's Cure for the Monday  Blues Challenge #14

and, as they're all Paper Smooches, I'm also entering into this week's PS SPARKS: Anything Goes Challenge

    

Here it is....my Hello City-Scape sequin shaker...


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!!

  13. Ok, I think I can't read anymore because I swore I read something about more snow. No I read right?? Say it isn't so!!! Grrrr, no more snow! lol I wish it was that easy, but it's gotta stop soon right?! I think spring is late to a lot of areas, but hopefully it will come. Now I am so loving your second shaker card! Love the color combo from the inspiration pic, your little building inside your shaker is so cool! Love it!! You are on a roll with the shaker cards! Hugs

  15. This is seriously darling! I can't believe you were having snow but at least it gave a perfectly inspired sequin snowstorm for your card! I love the red buildings and the 'doughnut coloured' heart! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!

  19. Wow! Carol, Another fabulous card! Your ideas really are endless! The 'notebook edge' (no idea what it is really called) is the perfect fit for the polka dots, the round sequins, and the "o" in hello! Not sure if you planned it this way but it creates wonderful movement from the left hand side of your card up to the right corner and the sweet 'hello' die! Super duper swell card :)
