Have your selfie an awesome day

Here is a card that I made for the Thursday Inspiration at Imagine That Digistamp using one of the newest images called Selfie Sandy and I also used the paper from the Tea 'n Roses paper set.  I added a pearl for the earring and the shirt.  I just love this sentiment.  The ribbon is a denim bias tape.

a cause for a celebration

Here is the card I made for the day 1 Bugaboo Birthday Bash making a shaker card.  I have never made the design in the background before and I really don't like it.  I did put anti-cling on my acetate sheet, but I unfortunately put my sentiment from TLC on the bottom which is covered unless you do a lot of shaking.  My seahorses have lots of colors which are hidden by the shaker elements.  Lessons learned.  I love shakers, but I guess I will keep my old methods.

Chillin

Technically this is the time of year where we are to be chillin, but we are warming and having freezing rain and having unusual weather for WI for this time of year.  Skiers and snowmobiliers are complaining since we don't have good snow for their fun.  Hopefully soon Mother Nature will get this corrected so we won't be having snow blizzards in May.
For my card, I used an image from Bugaboo and a sentiment from TLC.  I outlined the snow areas with a Sakura jelly glitter pen, which didn't show well in this picture I'm sorry to say.
