Just Skating By!

Happy Thursday, y'all!! Wow, it has been a while since I have posted!! I feel a little like Betty today - just skating by!! It has been a really busy 2 weeks for me. Last week, I made 7 mini scrapbook albums for a neighbor. Her daughter was having a slumber party and she printed pics for them to add to my pre-made albums. This week has been filled with errands, field trips, doctors visits, etc. I feel like I am just able to see the top of the mountain from the bottom of the hill! I am sure everyone has those weeks every once in a while, but I am sure ready for the weekend!

Pink Cat Studio has new digi's out today and they are perfect for your holiday cards!!

See the FREE bird?? Isn't he cute! Only FREE Today!

I decided to make a shaker card with Betty. The shaker windows are from Impression Obsession.

I used some more Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DP along with some Ocean Tides (PTI) and Riding Hood Red (SU) cardstocks. I filled the shaker card with some teal tinsel, snow glitter and clear glitter (All Martha Stewart).

Here is a close-up of the shaker portion. There is some tinsel sticking right on Betty's face, so I could not get a clear pic of her face. Here is a sideview to show you some dimension.

Supplies -

Stamps - Itty Bitty Betty Ice Skating Digi (PCS), sentiment (PTI)

Ink - Memento, Copics, Aqua Mist Ink (PTI)

Paper - Jolly by Golly DP (Cosmo Cricket), Cardstock (PTI & SU)

Accessories - Loopy Border & Leaf Punch (Martha), Fern Punch (Nellie Snellen), Flowers (bazzill), Buttons, Ribbon & Twine (PTI), Snow Glitter & Tinsel (Martha)
