Glitter Shaker Birthday Card

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  Not sure where the week has gone so far!  I am happy to share my voice is a lot better but still not yet 100%, it's taking a while to come back since I lost it on Saturday night!

Today I have a card to share that I made for the Play Date Challenge newest challenge which is color splash with hot pink!!  I saw the challenge last night before bed.  I love the color choices!  I sat down this morning and this card came together quickly.  I very much enjoyed making this card, don't you love it when that happens?  With not feeling all that well this was the first time I crafted this week!

Here is my card:

I wanted to play with my new zig zag stamp by Hero Arts.  And I was inspired by Julie Cambell's shaker card here.  I love shaker cards!  I used to make them all the time!  I love the idea of using a clear bag for the shaker!  You know how many clear bags I have?  Between the various clear envelopes and various size bags that I have for treats I am set!  Beyond an easier way to make a shaker card! Today my two ideas meshed and I came up with this card!  I used some glitter that I have had forever!  I added some twine by the Twinery, some jewels and a hot pink strip with the sentiment!  

Hope that you had a terrific Valentines Day!  On Monday night I went out with a bunch of girls friends and saw this movie:

We all loved it!  Such a fantastic movie!  Great story!  :>  I want to see it again with Chad!  You should go see it too!  Next up I want to read the book!

For Valentines Day I made treats for Ariel's class, I used my babycakes cake pop maker for the first time.  It really made it so much easier but it was a bit tricky to figure out how not to overfill it!  I wanted to make red velvet cake pops but didn't have enough red food coloring so I made pink velvet!  

Chad and I enjoyed celebrating Valentines Day as a family.  This weekend we are planning to go on a date!  :>

Well that's it for me!  Supper is in the slowcooker so I think I will spend the time I usually would making supper baking some banana bread!  I love baking!

I'm glad you are getting your voice back! Being sick sucks~I am so hoping I start to feel better soon!

What a great colour challenge~super fun colours and pretty picture!

Love your card!The zig zags are perfect with the style of the cut out! I really like the font on the Happy Birthday stamp too! When ever I see twine on a card I think of you~you always make it work so well:)

I think I would like the Vow- I should try and go see it one of these days- Marc likes love stories too so it would be a great date movie!

Super cute cake pops! I'm sure the kids loved them~ Ariel is so blessed to have a mom that loves to be a blessing to others~I'm sure she will be just like you!!

Enjoy your banana bread!
