I had time for one more challenge, Rattlesnake Roundup. The challenge was to make a shaker card. It didn't have to be snake related, but hey, why not when I knew the perfect image.
Snakes Alive digi by Hambo Stamps. It's been a long time since I've made a shaker card and I've never used a Nestie for the shape. I followed Beate's tutorial on SCS. It was easy and fun. I used X and O confetti to fill the shaker part of the card. I wanted to put Hugsssss & Kissessssss on the front but it wouldn't fit . Instead I glued a few pieces of the confetti on the ribbon. On the inside I put "Hugsssss & Kissesssss from me to you!" I love how it turned out.
It was fun trying some of the challenges. It really made me realize that I can make a nice card in 45 minutes. Sometimes I obsess too much on making my cards perfect and it takes me forever and takes all the fun out of it. Also I learned that I need to clean up my craft room!! A job for another day...I'm too busy creating!
