A Little Lighthouse and Sweet Stuff

My sister, Arlana, made an adorable shaker card this week for SSW2 and convinced me that I needed to make one also.  Then Arlana also convinced our other sister, Nancy, to make one. This is the first time in a little over a year since we closed the original SSW that we, three sisters, have created together. This is my first try at making a shaker card and I have to say it was quite fun to put together. Thanks, Arlana, for the inspiration!  It's great to see your creations again and to create as sisters!

I was going to make this one into a shaker card but decided that I liked it best as it is!  I added Crystal Effects to the gum ball machine and also the gum and then decided to add the rain drops on the corner of the chevron paper.

Thumb Body Loves YOU!

These little cards are for my nursery children to give to their family next week!  None of them have ever given their THUMB PRINT before!  But they were all curious and willing to try!  Each is unique!  They also added the heart on the inside! I did the rest! 
Their name and year is on the back of the card.  
Next week they will use some foam stickers to make another Valentine card all on their own!
Having fun with the crafts for the children!
