Shake, shake, shake.....shake, shake, shake...shake your buttons

I hope you don't mind that I put my own little twist on that song. I'm kinda goofy right about now and it comes from lack of sleep. You see, we had a very stormy night here in Texas, complete with thunder, lightening, rain and tornado warnings, but as you can see from this post, we made it through alright.

Even though I am really tired, I just couldn't stay away from my stamp room today. I was in there straightening up and still had the Cuddles and Tickles set on my desk and decided to make another card with it before I put it away. This one's a shaker card. Here it is.

I just love having those babies peaking over and around the shaker panel. It's just fun you know!

The babies were stamped in black stazon on blush blossom and then watercolered using my aqua painter and purely pomegranate reinker. I added some detail and depth with my markers and the dots are highlighted with a gel pen.

Then shaker was cut with my cricut and mini monogram cartridge and my coluzzle. I then ran it through the cuttlebug and swiss dots folder.

The papers are Stampin Up purely pomegranate, blush blossom, vanilla and acetate. I sponged all the edges with pomegranate and added ribbon to top it off. Oh, and I almost forgot, the buttons! I have buttons in there you know! See, I told you I'm a goof today!

That's it! It's really pretty simple and oh so cute.

I need to get off this baby kick and get busy with Mother's Day cards don't you think? I'll try really hard next time!

I hope y'all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by! TTFN

You know - this is adorable! I have never, EVER liked this set until the card you made a few days ago with it - and now this one! It's put me over the edge!! I love how you use these little babies. Just black and white - nothing - but when you color them and put them into action - WATCH OUT!!! Makes me sad they aren't available anymore!!
