tiddly inks challenge #39: shaker card

i hope that everyone had a great weekend. mine was a fun family weekend. we went to the natural history museum & the kids  loved the space & dinosaur exhibits. then on sunday we did some work around the house to de-baby the house. yes, my baby has outgrown the baby gates & other barriers. kinda sad, but i am so happy to not have to deal with gates anymore. it was a reason for celebration.

& balloons are always a part of a celebration. they are so much fun. it always brings a big smile to my kids' faces when they get one. & i love the whaz up or whaz down digi ...



the confetti inside are punches of butterflies & birds glittered up with martha stewart glitter. the rest of the supplies are: copic markers, hero arts stamps, chalk ink &  distress ink, stickles, embroidery floss (for the balloon strings), buttons & ribbon from either michael's or joann's, an acetate sheet, a nestability for the window, & 3M double sided foam tape.

as a side note, i tried to not use foam tape & use the fun foam that my daughter & i use for some of her projects, but it was messy. 3M tape is definitely the way to go. & i was going to just use glitter inside the shaker, but it just didn't seem right. the white glitter looked like snow.  blue glitter reminded me of rain. & the other colors just didn't call out to me. punches felt right.

hope all of you have a great week. thanks as always for stopping by. i love to read your comments. until next time!

@mforquer- i actually designed the paper. i first painted the background with distress inks. then i stamped it up with hero arts envelope pattern & real flowers stamps. then i added the balloons from whaz up whaz down. & the background of the pups is also a hero arts stamp.

happy that you guys like it : )
