New Play Toy for Fred, She Said and Another DT Term

I just received some oval and round Shaker Card Pouches called Shake It from Impression Obsession.  I couldn't wait to use it on a card with the pre-colored Blue Jay from Fred, She Said.  These Jay's come on branches for all the seasons but I wanted to use the one with snow for my first
Christmas card of the year~I know Yikes!
The unique thing about the shakers is that they are very low profile and have a strong adhesive around the edge.  That makes them perfect for cards!  I piled the material on top of the image and then pressed down the edge of the pouch.  Success! No Leaks! I covered the flared edge with a heavy lace, attached a cardstock sticker and have my card!  It was fun to create this-had been a very long since I had done one so I put a little too much iridescent snow and multi-colored blue beads in the pouch but a little extra bling bling shouldn't hurt, right?  Thanks for looking-hopefully this will inspire me to get a move on my Christmas cards!

Also received the news that I will start my second term on this great Fred, She Said Team and I couldn't be happier~Tracey (aka Fred) creates wonderful digis for us to color as well as gives us the options for her pre-colored images.  Boy, has that saved me when I needed a card fast.  So keep an eye on my blog for new images and hopefully inspiring ideas!
