Happy Wednesday! We are socked in with fog this morning! The weather guy told me yesterday that he thinks our severe weather season is over. Which is okay I guess but I don't get the pictures like the one I shared with you yesterday very much.
I am going to call today Shaker Card Wednesday! Today is one of the only days where I end up posting twice... so stay tuned this evening!
This week with Paper Craft Crew we have a sketch that was rather daunting to look at. It really had a lot of elements to try to represent! Challenge accepted though and I just love this little card!

First let me say that this paper is so much fun! I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do initially... I actually made my candy jar first using the Jar of Love Bundle with a Crumb Cake jar using Early Espresso ink. I always adhere my window panel on a shaker with Tear N Tape. The Foam Adhesive strips are a God send when it comes to doing shakers. They are just the right thickness so that all of your bits shake really well! My candy in jar is about 5 Real Red stamped peppermints from the Jar of Cheer set that have been punched using a 1/2 inch Circle Punch! I had some loose seed beads to put into my shaker along with some sequins. When I made this card I had received my second holiday catalog order yet, I used the metallic red thread at the top of the jar! If my I had been smart, I should have used the Candy Cane Lane Bakers Twine. The jar is adhered to a circle with a cute little tag coming off the right with "Tis the Season" heat embossed in white. This cute sentiment is from the Peaceful Pines set in the Annual Catalog. Once I had this part figured out the Large Polka Dot TIEF seemed to be the folder that spoke to me! There was still that twine bow with banner at top and I wasn't sure how to nail it! Well, I think I did! I simply fussy cut the mittens from the DSP and adhered them to the thick white bakers twine with glue dots and dimensionals! Now that I had that figured out I adhered the Real Red Large Dots to the Early Espresso....BOOM!
It really is a great little card!
