shake it all about

Sorry I've been absent all week!
Probably like you, I've been busy making cards, boxes, crackers etc.,
in fact it nearly sent me crackers!
Luckily I had a lovely lunch with a friend on Thursday, and a lace making class on Friday that helped keep me sane,
and today the lace group I belong to had it's xmas party too!

I can now show you some of my cards, as the recipients have received them,
so I won't spoil the surprise!

I was with some friends recently, and managed to borrow a stamp that I thought was very cute.
No idea of the manufacturer, but a big Polar Bear cuddling a little one,
sat on an iceberg, looking up at a star.
Hence I used blue ink, and made a 'shaker' frame with my oval framelits from Stampin' Up!
Embossed the background with the polka dot folder, great for creating a snowy scene.
Some chunky glitter from Stampin' Up! to 'shake' about.....
except I think I put in a bit too much!
The frame is cut from silver glimmer paper, ribbon adds a nice border.

Tonight my lovely man is cooking fillet steak for dinner,
and I'll probably have a nice glass of red with it.
How lucky am I ?!?!?!?!
Hope you are having a good weekend too

  1. They are SO cute, a real triumph. I may have to add some shaker frames to my shopping list. If you could share your chef that would be good too!!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous Xmas cards Lesley. Even better IRL! Thanks mate.
