Simon Says Stamp ,, Bubble Parade :-)

Today I have a set of 4 Bubble Parade cards to share.  I am on a mission to create 4 cards using each of the new series of dies, ie Butterfly Drift, Diamond Parade, Cloud Bank, Bubble Parade and Star Parade. I have been really enjoying making these ,, a fun challenge to myself :-)

This weeks theme on the Wednesday Challenge is to make a shaker/confetti card. As you know I LOVE shaker cards so I made another one ;-)

TOP TIP ,, after getting it wrong SO MANY times, I have now had a lightbulb moment !! do not remove all the release paper from the foam tape when adhering the top layer to the base card. Leave one of the edges free so that you can add more shaker stuff,,,, without having to wreck your card if you haven't added enough,, or if you have added too much,,, you learn by your mistakes eh !! :-)

I splattered the background on this one ,,, looks so pretty :-)

The Lots of Dots stamp set goes really well with this die don't ya think ,,,, I love this one :-)

And last but not least I am featuring Simon :-) Don't you just LOVE him, sooo CUTE :-)

and here is a photo of Cheiron, Simon and me taken  the CREATE event :-) 
 aww bless him, isn't he adorable  

OK ,, now to make a start on the Star Parade set of cards :-)

Challenges :
Animal Friends ,,, Dog and/or Cat
Deep Ocean ,,, Add a Sentiment
Card Mania ,,,, Circles
Come and Get It ,,, Animals
As You Like It ,,, Animals or People ,,, I am drawn to animals, I have a dog and 7 cats so maybe                             thats why ?? 

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
