Warm Winter Wishes....The Heart Desires Challenge #8, TIME OUT Challenge #74~Winter, Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #5~Try Something New

Hello,

My husband should be arriving home any minute now, having spent the weekend at biathlon events. *Someone* needs to get the kitchen counter (aka crafting zone) tidied up AND a card posted toute de suite!

Want to see what happened when I took Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #5~Try Something New,



mixed it with a sprinkling of The Heart Desires Challenge #8




and added a heaping helping of TIME OUT Challenge #74~Winter?

This....a little snowflake-y shaker, light-bulb-y shaker.  Experimenting with more "new to me" Concord and 9th products: Shine Brighter.


I'm off....wishing you a marvelous Sunday evening!

Thank you for spending time with me today; your visit brings me joy!

Hope the space was to your liking when your hubby got home, Carol. This card is so pretty! I think the lightbulb is inspired and love the snowflakes inside and out. The beads are such a fun and pretty alternative to sequins. Wonderful work, my friend! Have a happy day. Hugs!

I'm playing 'comment catch-up' once again! IKEA cupboard (pantry only at this point) installation all weekend kept me away from my craft room!

GORGEOUS! GORGEOUS! GORGEOUS! The shaker element is AMAZING, but it's the color combo that has me saying "WOW"! A clean & crisp beauty!

Aren't shakers just the most fun?! Yours is adorable, and I'm loving all that pretty blue in this card. From the inside bits, to the outside shines, this card rocks. I think you've got a winner here. So pretty!! Bev

Gorgeous little shaker card with those little seed beads! You should link this beauty with Curtain Call - fits perfectly!

Wowzzzzzzzza, Carol! I think this is my favorite Christmas card for LAST year and I saw a lot of them! I think your design of a lightbulb snow aperture is genius; to make it a shaker, too, is over-the-moon brilliant!! Hugs, Darnell

I LOVE your brilliant card, Carol...what a clever idea!

Thank you so much for your lovely words of encouragement after what have been a couple of turbulent, sad and testing years. Getting back into card making and blogging is going to help a lot I hope.

Hugs,

Creativity is right, Carol. This is so fabulous. I have that stamp set, barely used, but would never have thought of a shaker. Way to go! I love the snowflake peeking through and the dots around.

So creative and fun, Carol ... your sweet shaker light bulb is fabulous with the tiny blue beads ... seems it's shedding frosty blue light around it! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
