Shake it!!

Hope your week has got off to a good start. The rain has finally stopped here in Dorset and I think we are set to have a few reasonable days which is good because I am on annual leave this week and will now be able to get some riding in!! Surprise has been delighted to have a break while the weather has been so horrid...I'm not ashamed to say that I am most definitely a fair weather rider these days!!
Anyway, I'll stop jabbering and get on with the reason for my visit...another Christmas card and it's a shaker card today.


Oh good grief I can see myself reflected in the acetate, so apologies for that!!
The Sassy Cheryl image, Winter was coloured with my Promarkers. The pearl board frame was experimental and actually embossed with a mask. I was really pleased with how it turned out. I also mixed up some mica powder and painted the background for a bit of shimmer, which, as is so often the case, doesn't show up in the snap. I used Glamour Dust Crytal Glitter and pearls for the shakey bit and the sentiment is from a very old stamp set of unknown origin!!

Fab shaker card Sarah. The weather was a lot drier here today and looks set for a couple of days of dry weather. I think we were spoiled by the very dry early autumn! Enjoy your week off and the rides. :)
