Happy birthday!

To my co worker Michelle!  She is ???? years old today, and here is the card I made to give to her:

The decorative card front is my favorite from the Silhouette store.  I did modify it some in order to allow more room for the foam layer around the edges.  The shaker contains red glitter, red and white sequins, AND pieces of red and silver confetti in the shapes of party hats, presents, and the word "PARTY."  So cute!  Michelle LOVES cake (who doesn't??), so this sentiment from the Humorous Birthday set from Inkadinkado was PERFECT!  :)  I've had this stamp set for years, but this is the first that I've inked up this goofy little guy, so that qualifies for Darnell's NBUS challenge:

It runs until the 22nd of January, so there's still time to check it out and join in if you haven't already!
I'll also be adding this to the Winter Wonderland challenge in which they are looking for some metal (the sequins and confetti have some kind of thin metal covering), and they are not necessarily looking for Christmas creations just yet.
That's all for me tonight...just to let you all know, my postings may be a bit sporadic as we are in full kitchen reno mode at the moment.  By that, I mean we have NO KITCHEN!  We are down to the studs, people!  We stocked up on salad fixins and microwave meals, so we aren't going hungry!  :)
Thanks for stopping by today, and take care of yourselves and your loved ones!


  1. Hi Marie, I tried posting a comment earlier...but I don't think it went through...
    Your card is really cute...I'm sure Michele really liked it...(I'm a big fan of shaker cards!)

    I can't remember if I thanked you for lovely Christmas card. I didn't manage to get all of mine sent out this year...I

    Also, I saw this card on Darnell's blog and I remembered that your blog does NOT show up any more on my Reader list. I don't know why...I show up on your followers...In fact, I'm the first one who started following you...when I tried to sign up again it told me that I was already on the list? Not sure what I can do to have your blog show up? Hope you have a great week.

  2. Super shaker card.
    Thanks for playing along at Winter Wonderland this week.
    Good luck.

  3. That is a HUGE shaker inside that pretty card, Marie! I must try this! I have oodles of these large sequints - like ballerina shoes, for heaven's sake, and schtuff like that - that I had no idea what to do with. Ah ha! Now I am itching to make picture window shaker cards, which must be awesome fun for the recipient! Thank you! I love the goofy critter on the inside, too, of course! The hamster thinks it might be either his biological father or his cousin Joe, who left together to get gas one day in '78 and never came back.

    Thank you so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge #3! Enjoy your day! All the best of luck with the kitchen reno. Let me know if you post pictures when it's done, so I don't miss that post. Hugs, Darnell
