Hello to all this dark rainy afternoon, I hope you are all well.
I am trying to get back to normal after two weeks jury service which I just loved. I really didn't want to go back to work at all. It's a game of catch up now though both at home and at work, I'm only three days into the week and I'm exhausted!
I have treated myself to a couple of evenings of crafting though this week as I had a couple of images I wanted to make into cards-well, the same image but twice actually. At the weekend I really wanted to colour this lovely image when hubby said he liked it and wanted to colour it up for me. I really loved this image and wanted to colour it too so I decided we could both do it and I'd use them both for two different cards.
This is the first one-I've been wanting to have a go at a shaker card for some time but never really got round to it. As soon as I saw this image in my folder I knew it'd make a perfect one.
This image was a freebie from Pink Gem some while ago and it is coloured with Promarkers.
I embossed the front panel with a magazine folder and cut out the hexagon shapes with an X cut die set. The little snowflakes in the corners are done with a little Xcut punch. I had an awful job trying to photograph this today as it was soooo dark outside so ended up holding my daylight lamp up in front of it-not ideal but it kind of worked!! I'll be back in a few days to show you the card I made with my image!
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Well, thank you so much for stopping by today and for any comments you may wish to leave. Time for dinner now I think-just why do the evenings fly by so quickly??
Enjoy the rest of your week and until next time.
