Paper craft project no. 227: Let’s celebrate you


2014-07-18 Let's celebrate you

This is my first ever shaker card!!! And the sequins inside move when you shake the card — LOL! Okay, I’m going to write a calmer (and more coherent) post later on…but I just wanted to post this project before the current Virginia’s View Challenge ends, which is like…less than 3 hours from now!

DH and I have to run to town to drop packages in the mail and then work out for a bit. He has been waiting patiently while I worked on this card and he made himself busy — he cleaned my scissors (all 8 of them), installed another monitor on my desk, and started backing up my main computer. And when I saw the clock and realized it was taking me longer than I’d anticipated:

me: Oh, no. I’m so sorry, dear. We’re not going to be able to leave at 5:30..
DH: That’s okay. It’s not a set time.
me: We’re not going to have much time to work out at the gym…[frantically working my Cuttlebug]
DH: Don’t worry about it, dear. Finish what you’re working on. That’s important to you.

Am I a blessed girl or what? Okay, gotta go!! Be back later to edit this post and describe how I put it all together.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
