Merry Monday 107

Happy Monday, peeps!  Another Merry Monday is here…this time Katie has a sweet sketch for us!  I just love this sketch….lots of interesting elements to play with:

At my clubs this month, we are making shaker cards, so I made this one as an example:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 107 Snowflake Shaker Christmas Card Stampin Up

I used Retro Fresh designer paper and A Round Array for my little snowflake, and some retiring Silver Glass Glitter for the “snow”!  SU’s Shaker Frames and Window Sheets make it easy to make a circular shaker window! 


A sentiment from the retired Endless Wishes polymer set, stamped in Encore Silver, a few Silver Glimmer accents and it was finished!

I hope you’ll pop by the Merry Monday blog to see the other designers’ samples and get some inspiration from them as well!  Then play along with us so you can add to your Christmas card stash!!

We have a pretty big rabbit living in our backyard; Cassidy tried to chase it!


It ended up escaping under Grampy’s dinghy:


and then she chased it into the flower bed (can you see him on the right side of the photo?)…..where he ran onto the patio and under the porch!!!  Smart bunny!

Enjoy your day!

Products used (including retired Endless Wishes and Silver Glimmer paper):

Pretty card LeAnne! I like the dry embossed panel, sparkle and your glittery shaker. Max and Cassidy would get along like two peas in a pod. He chase everything in his yard!!

Great shaker card, LeAnne! Great colors too. Hope you have a great week!

Bonnie said...

How fun to use this sketch for a shaker card, LeAnne! Love that silver and blue and all the glitter! Cassidy and the rabbit make me think of the story of Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor chasing him. I'll bet he was relieved when Cassidy went in!

Debbie Henderson said...

Very nice with the blue LeAnne. The shaker part of the card is such a great idea!

Linda said...

Was it the Easter Bunny? LOL Oh what fun she has and you have it all recorded her on your blog.
Very pretty shaker card. I love the colors you used.
Happy Monday!

Too cute - Cassidy chasing the bunny around the yard. Smart bunny to stay away from her I bet.
Pretty card and pretty colours. I like the silver sparkle. I've only done a shaker once and it didn't turn out very well - yours look wonderful

Wendy said...

Such pretty colours you have used LeAnnne. I love the DP's with the gorgeous embossing and glitter accents.

Greta said...

What a neat card! I love that you included the angle on the top panel as well as the background!

Narelle Farrugia said...

I may have to CASE this card (if that's ok???) The shaker is perfect for Christmas LeAnne and I love your mix of DSPs and glimmer card stock!

Karren said...

This card lends itself so well to a shaker card - genius idea LeAnne! Love the blue color scheme.

Rita Wright said...

I love shaker cards and this one is fabulous! You just can't go wrong with pretty blues. That IS a huge rabbit! He needs the exercise. ;)
