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.

  1. Although I loved both cards, the one with the gumballs really stole my heart. Those twine bows are great and the raindrops in the corners really made this card. Fabulous paper choices Judi this week.

  2. Love both of these, I especially like the way all the papers and embellishments tell the story on your lighthouse shaker card. I've not made one of those for years, I feel a play coming on x

  3. I am so glad that I convened you to make a shaker card. It was so fun to see all sister lined up and playing this this week like we used to. I love both card. But I cant believe the fun detail that you add to your shaker card. The metal embellishments are the the sweetest ever. Your papers could not be more perfect. Love ya sis!

  4. Very fun cards this week Judi!! I love that you "three" all made Shaker cards - I definitely will have to try one soon!! I also love the Crystal Effects on your Gumball Machine card - so perfect!!
    Blessings and hugs to you!!

  5. Two gorgeous cards Judi! Love your shaker card!! A glorious ocean scene. And yum to the gumball machine, love the glossy accents. So good to "see" you again!


  6. I love your two fantastic cards, The Lighthouse is one of my favorite images, and your papers are so perfect. How fun it looks as a shaker card too! Have to have you girls all together again! Hugs, Heide

  7. I am not sure which card I like the best. They are both so cute. I love the starfish and fun items in your shaker. The papers and embellishments for the lighthouse are so perfect...and the gumball machine is very striking too!!! I was fun to do these together. We need to get together at Arlana's sometime for a craft weekend.
    Love ya, Nancy
