ABC 'D' for Don't Overdo It Challenge

Hi all, I am here with the next letter of the alphabet for the ABC Christmas Challenge!  


we are keeping things clean and simple this fortnight 
(so please don't slap on lots of embellishments and stuff haha;-))

I used a super cute Christmas Penguins image from our sponsor All Dressed Up. Thanks Wendy xx 

As you all know I do love to use to make shakers especially now I have a fabulous Fuse Tool! Honestly if you don't have one GET ONE :-) It is so much fun! IF you do get one I would also recommend that you invest in a Silicone Mat, the holder is invaluable to prevent accidental burns, speaking from experience ;-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Wendy at
Winner will receive two free digis of their choice
from Wendy’s Etsy shop

What a cute shaker card Lorraine. Loving the star background. I just got a fuse and I love it, got the mat too, I agree, it is perfect for using he fuse with it. Always hated how the stuff inside the pocket stuck to the foam tape, now it moves around freeing when I make a pocket with the fuse. Fun snowmen too.

I love shaker cards and this one is gorgeous. Your added sequins among the snow is a great detail.

Sue said...

Hi Lorraine, this is a really beautiful CAS card. Your shaker card design is really lovely and I love how you have coloured those penguins. I am very tempted to treat myself to a fuse tool now!

Donna Ellis said...

Oh So Cute, Lorraine and Lois! I'm not sure whether to say Lorraine or Lois because your blog post is signed as Lois, and the watermark says Lois made the card, but the challenge post says Lorraine! LOL So let me just say how incredibly sweet and beautiful your shaker card is! I have pinned it so remind myself so I can make something similar! Just adorable! Thank-you for joining us at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge "Use a Stamp or Digi".
