Hi everyone, todays card I made for my niece's 9th birthday.  I used the Foxy Friends stamp set and made a simple shaker card, kids love shaker cards keeps them amused for a while. Cardstock is Melon Mambo and the pink polka dot paper is from The Pop of Pink DSP.   I stamped the fox using Melon Mambo and fussy cut her out, I used chocolate chip for her legs and eyes, the log I used Chocolate Chip and also fussy cut, on the background behind the fox I stamped the leaves from this stamp set around the edges using crumb cake and olive green then added coloured stars which is what I had in my stash.  For the shaker I used the new Layering Square Framelits, the largest and second largest scalloped edge then using the Large plain Framelit for the window sheet you just have to roll that through the big shot a couple of times, I used foam adhesive strips, they are so easy to use and make it very quick and simple.   Large Number Framelits to cut out the 9 out of Whisper White, to finish off I wrapped some Smokey Slate Stitched ribbon.  If you would like written instructions let me know and I will be happy to email them to you.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed todays card and see you soon.

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.. Did you do anything exciting?  You might not know this but I have been attending quilting class for around 15 years and yesterday (Sunday) we had our yearly all day workshop at Treehouse Textiles in Merrick, Victoria, we were surrounded by beautiful bushland overlooking a lake, we had lunch on the deck outside watching the ducks swimming around, such bliss but goes way too fast, this was out 2nd year we have been there so looking forward to the next one.
So back to this lovely 10th Anniversary card I made for a friend.
I used Thick Whisper white card stock for the base of my card and cut out the heart with regular Whisper White card stock using the Bloomin die set and using the same die set cutting out the cute little flowers with Dapper Denim card stock.  The 10 was cut out from blue glitter paper I happen to have in my stash and the Anniversary sentiment is from the Number of Years Stamp & Die set Bundle, for the butterfly I used my Bitty Butterfly punch using Dapper Denim card stock, the embellishments I used are Pearl Basic Jewels and Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon.
I hope you like todays card, let me know what you think.
