About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Winter Wonderland

The theme this week at the Outlawz is "Snowmen." Now, I absolutely love snowmen and my house if full of them. I also have a ton of snowman images and it was difficult to chose one. But, when I finally did, this is what I came up with.....my first shaker card:

Here's the recipe:
Card Base: generic white card stock
Image: Disney coloring page
Blue paper: From recollections
Acetate: clear plastic from a Stampin' Up bag
Blue Glitter Paper: DCWV glitter stack
Snow globe base: Scrap brown paper
Silver shape: scrap metallic paper
Blue ribbon wrapped around base of snow globe: scrap piece from stash. I think it came from Studio G.
Silver Snowflake: Brad and charm from recollections.

I hope you like it! I think it turned out pretty cute for my first shaker card.
