 Hello everyone,

What a lovely day I had with my friend yesterday and her husband, everything was fine, she said she found it hard to text while the car was moving, [ I get that] so we had  a fabulous visit and a lot of fun and happy memories, and talk about laugh, it was so good...

So after they left, my son turned up 4 days earlier than expected, so now my lounge once again, looks like a B&B..

I had some fun too, and made a get well, feel better card, and it's a shaker..

Another very long slimline card and gingham papers from my scrap folder
make a lovely backdrop for my red heart sequins..

they sound so lovely rattling around..

die cut sentiments and glued them down, they take a wee while on the shiny accetate..

My apples ,leaves, branches, and blossoms coloured with my markers.
and glued into place..

Oop's a bit shiny there...

All the sequins down..

All the sequins scattered...

And here we have a finished shaker..

feel better, get well soon..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

What a beautiful slimline style shaker card! Love the yummy apple bunches over the gingham background! Your shaker looks like the other apples fell to the ground! I love it! Glad you had a good visit with your friend! HUGS

Gorgeous card. I've got a sneaking feeling that you like shaker cards. Holly will be happy with her 'man' . Hugs, Valerie

I've never made a shaker card like this, where there is no frame to limit the shaker space. This has a cool effect. Nicely done!

How lovely the visit turned out so lovely for you both Chrissy, then for your son to turn up early, chaos, but still lovely. Love your shaker card, so colourful and will certainly make the unwell person feel better.

Really cute shaker card. I have only done one shaker card like this with no framing and I really loved how easy it was. It has been a bit since I did that one and might be time to do another.
