You're Sweet Shaker Card Die Cut for Baby Shower Thank You

We are getting pounded with a lovely snowstorm right before thanksgiving. Up until now, we've been getting freezing rain and light dustings of snow. We're expecting about a foot of snow. I took my pregnant behind outside and carved out a path in the driveway hoping that the delivery men and Dimma won't get stuck later. Unfortunately, it is covered again. Boo...

Many of the people who are traveling for the holiday are already out of the area. We haven't planned anything, so we will just have a relaxing day at home...I hope. :) I am looking forward to dinner tonight though. For the last month or so I've been steaming and boiling all of my food and seasoning with just plain salt. Today, I will be cheating and making some tacos with ground turkey. Hopefully my body will cooperate or I will pay for it later. :D

Below, are the cards I have sent out to thank everyone who sent gifts and/or attended the baby shower back in Oct. I believe it was 14 cards in all. 

I drew inspiration from this card. "You're" was cut out, backed with acetate, and framed from behind with foam tape to create a compartment filled with glitter and sequins. "Sweet" was printed out using my photo printer. The embossed daisies were created using a Darice plate and the Cuttlebug. I topped off the petals with puffed glitter to create a sparkle to them. 

Wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving!

  1. I have been watching the weather on the news, so nasty for you all. Your cards are lovely. xxx


  2. Your card is so pretty Eileen. OMGosh, despite the cold and snow, I must say, that is a beautiful picture. Gee, for me, temperatures below 65 degrees F is much to cold for me. I could never survive on the east coast. Keep warm and Happy Thanksgiving.
