About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

My first shaker card

This is my first ever shaker card.  IF I do another one I will use smaller beads, these keep getting caught between the card and the plastic. I used a digital image colored with pencils and Spellbinders dies.  I applied chalk to the background of the image and sentiment.


  1. Oh so sweet! This is adorable! Great looking shaker card!

  2. Very cute! Great job on the card! I'm still to venture into making one of those!

  3. That is pretty neat! And so much cleaner then filling it with confetti, remember? :)
