Good morning everyone! Man I have been seeing so many wonderful creations out there on all of the blogs. Squigglefly's design team blew me away with all the wonderful gatefold cards they made. I'm still working on mine! I also need to get cracking on Stef's color challenge at the Squigglefly group on card universe! So many wonderful blogs to visit and so many fun challenges to do, but not enough time to do them all!
It was with this thought in mind that I created today's card.

I used the cute little Computer Shy Bear from Squigglefly to create a fun shaker card!
First I printed out a sheet full of fun blogs I love to visit. I added a few made up names too just for fun. Do you spot your blog on there? :)
I colored the computer shy bear with copic markers and then I cut the shape of the image out of the sheet of blog names and glued it down around the image. I could have cut the bear out and glued him directly on the sheet, but I thought cutting the shape out of the paper would make the edges less noticeable than doing it the other way.
I used a piece of foam core board to mount the whole thing on, and cut a hole in it to hold my shaker pieces. I chose hearts since this is indicative of how much I love the blogs I visit, but wouldn't some little bugs be cute for someone who's having problems with their computer? Or draw little envelopes to put in there for "mail"!
Once I had the hearts in there, I glued down the back piece making sure that the "You've Got Mail" showed through the window, and then I simply wrapped the piece of paper with all of the blog names on it around the foam core like it was a present.
I could simply back it with a piece of white card stock and write my message on there, but I'm going to mount it on the front of a folded card so I can write on the inside of that.
It's a rainy day here, and I'd so love to be home working on those challenges, but I must get to work instead! I hope you are having a fantastic day, and thanks for looking!
