Shaker idea

Well we finally had some sunshine today!! It makes a lovely change from all the rain, and so we went up to the lake district and went for a boat ride across Windemere. I didn't take my camera so there are no pictures I am afraid, but I had great fun feeding the geese, swans, ducks, gulls and jackdaws lol. I have a lovely nip on my shoulder where one of the baby Canada geese crept up behind me and then pecked at me - little terror hehe. And I had to grab one of the cygnats by the beak to stop it from pecking at my arms (daddy also told him off lol).

Anyway, I have made a shaker card with the new Christmas image from Limited Runs, for the new progressive challenge - I think I am just in time with the uploading of this, whew.

I coloured the image (provided by Limited Runs for the progressive challenge) with Promarkers and then cut close to the edge of the outline. I stuck this to a circle of foiled snowflake card. I then used a green die-cut snowglobe and added acetate behind the snowglobe centre. I added fine glitter, course glitter and stars inside this shaker element, and added a ribbon to the top to finish. A name can be added in peel-offs to the centre of the snowglobe base.

I would like to enter this for the following challenges:
Limited Runs Progressive
PFP 412 Let it shine
Die Cuttin' Divas #334 3D, shaker or shaped
CRAFT #433 Christmas
addicted to stamps #152 Christmas
Christmas @ Sweet Stampin'

I thought you might like to see the moth eggs that are on my back door window - I wonder if they will have hatched by the time I get home???

here are some more pictures of the eggs:
Thanks for looking and I will share some photos from my holiday with you shortly too!!
