I absolutely love September, it's my favourite time of year. I love the turning of the seasons and the back to school vibe which fills the air.
September this year is even more exciting for a few special members of our family and friends. My youngest brother is starting sixth form to study his A-Levels; my cousin's son is starting secondary school; my friend's son is starting primary school and so is my beautiful niece. I can't believe where the time has gone!
Anyway, these are the good luck cards I have sent to them. This is the first time I have ever made a shaker card, and I love it! It took a little while to get my head around the different components, but armed with my trusty Cameo Silhoutte and my adhesive tape I managed it. And it is so fun and satisfying to fill with sequins and beads! I made the two older boys grey cards with a slightly more masculine feel (their shaker mix was gold, green, red and blue); my niece has a gorgeous gold, pink and white mix and my friend's cheeky little boy has a mix of gold and rainbow colours to match his bright personality. I just hope all those beads stay put in the post!
I am going to enter the rainbow card into two challenges this week:
- Simon Say Stamp Wednesday Challenge http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/
- Cas(e) This Sketch http://casethissketch.blogspot.co.uk/
Apologies for the unganely links to the blog challenges and lack of supplies list at the moment, I am posting this from my iphone and still not quite sussed it.
Love Hannah xx
