Monday Mania Host!

***this will stay on top until Saturday, Aug 21, 2010***

(scroll down for my daily posts)

Oh My Goodness! I am so blown away when I received an email from the famous Amy Young! She asked me if I would like to host a Monday Mania at Club Anya and Friends! I was so honored and blessed...then I thought...oh no! what should I create or make or...then I thought, hey how about a shaker card? I think I can do! I also knew what image I wanted to use once I was knew what I was going to do. So here is my Flirty Anya. I paper pieced her dress with my LV paper! I think this turned out so cute! I even gave her some gold sparkle streaks in her hair and what makes the shaker the most fun? lots and lots of beads!
here's my card in full view. I used my spellbinder blossom for the window. I also used my thin foam for the shaker to pop it up, instead of using the double stick foam tape. I added some SU satin ribbon, flowers and my new butterfly die. I cut that one out with my LV paper too! I even added some half pearls. I also used my cuttlebug for the inside circle for my background. I sprayed the card with Tsukineko's sparkle shimmer spritz. I love to make my projects shine =)
here's a side view so you can see the depth of the window and the different beads I put inside. I used heart confetti, beads and micro beads. Doesn't this Anya look so "hawaiian" or "local"? I do and she's so easy to color and fun to alter. Can you see what I altered on this one?
so now it's your turn to create a fun and fabulous shaker card. Please go to the Club Anya and Friends blog to find out all the deets and link your card for a chance to win! Also leave me a comment here so that I know you entered! Good-Luck everyone and I can't wait to see all your creations!

“What is life, after all, but a challenge? And what better challenge can there be than the one between the dream of creating or the reality of really creating something inspiring!

Be Blessed,

Hi Joy! Man, Monday Mania was really driving me to be a maniac when it was refusing to let me up load my shaker card ... LOL! I finally emailed them and they said they were having issues with the gallery and asked me to email the pic to Jessica for uploading. I hope it makes it's way to your shaker folder... otherwise, you just have to wait until I post it ... HAHAHAHAHAHA! Take it easy my sister and see you on Saturday! LOVE YAH MUCH!




Congratulations Joy and this a beautifull card, love the colours.
Hugs Linda
