Shaker Box.....

I love shaker boxes......maybe because they allow movement and interaction. Maybe I'm just weird. I don't make them often because they are a bit more time consuming than the average card, and we all know how fast I am at making cards. (insert sarcastic grin!) But I did make one using the By The Sea set by JustRite. I had this little jar of pink sand that was begging me to use it. So I obliged. Papers, pink ribbon, and button are by Papertrey Ink. The ropey looking ribbon is by SU! The image was colored with Prismas and blended with Gamsol.

The ovals, scalloped oval and the transparency were cut using Spellbinders. To pop the top image up and allow for movement of the sand, I used foam tape. The trick is to seal it all the way around, so the sand doesn't leak out. : )

I am off to my Gram's today. Hoping to clean a bit for her, but sometimes she just wants to sit up and visit. Either way, it's all good. My bathtub is being removed later this week, we are having a shower put in to make it more accessible for Cortney. They are going to try and salvage the rest of our bathroom because it was just done a few years ago. So I am keeping my fingers crossed that they are able to take the tub out with minimal mess. In the meantime, I have to empty the bathroom closet. And let me just tell ya.....I have lots of crap....stuff....in there to go through. Does anyone else have hundreds of half used shampoo, lotion, deodorant etc.???
Have a fabulous day!!! Thanks so much for stopping on by!

Michelle,
what an amazing card. I love the sentiment. I, too, love shaker cards - but they are very time consuming.
Good luck with the bathroom.
Hugs

You always rock my world. I hate you because you have more talent in your thumb than I do in my whole body! (Aren't I sweet?)
