Sneaky Peek week BLOG HOP!

Hi all! Our New Release is up and swinging at The Cat's Pajamas, such a GREAT one too. The whole DT was in agreement, we couldn't quit playing with these new things! :) If you are hopping, you should have come here from Nancy's blog, if not and you'd like to Hop {I'd highly recommend it, ladies!} ;) then go back and start at Alma's blog. Today I'm showing off a fun shaker card I made with more sand from Ev's sandbox in it! You likey? This was one of those painstakingly slow cards as I had to completely tear it apart and start completely over on the first one. UGH! I hate when that happens. But in the end, it's really fun and I think it was worth the effort.

You can see that Mr. Beach Bun is getting a bit pink on his ears and his feet! LOL, I couldn't resist, since I colored him a pinky tone. ;) Gotta keep a sense of humor when stamping you know! 

The frame was created on the acetate with some washi tape and accented with buttons. I made a sun in the corner with some punched layered circles, some Aqua Divine Twine and an orange button. I fussy cut Beach Bun and left a bit of white area around the edges to accomodate the whiskers. Normally I'd stamp him down, cut off his whiskers and paper piece another Bun on top, but since he was going on acetate, that wasn't going to work.... I think in hindsight I'd prefer to cut off the whiskers, and draw them on with a permanent pen. I'm not too crazy about those white bits, but most folks probably wouldn't even notice! LOL ;) 

The sentiment, clouds (made with the Cloud Border CutUp) and sand are inside the shaker part. :) 

That's all for me! Pop on over to Kimberly's blog to continue Hopping! And, enjoy your new goodies in pink and yellow striped bags! ;) 

hugs, Noelle
