Shake it,baby!

** IMPORTANT : The challenge blog is not up and running for today as yet.Somebody has hacked the account and hijacked the email associated with it. Therefore Donna,the owner,is unable to access her account to post last week’s winner and the new challenge.Donna is dealing with this so please bear with her while she’s trying to rectify the problem.I will update here as soon as there are any changes in the situation.**

**Yay!! Were back!!**

Over at Pear Tree Designs we want to see your SHAKER CARDS!We also have a new sponsor this week.We have the fabulous Cardmadfairy’s Creations!Jenni produces the most delightful images so please go take a look.She’s also offering the very generous prize of  her set of 5 new Christmas digital images for one lucky winner! 

I have to say this Snowbaby’s Gift,from Cardmadfairy’s Creations,was an absolute joy to work with.Not only is it adorable beyond words it has lovely open spaces – just perfect to colour with Promarkers.For added texture and sparkle I applied some  White Opal Liquid Pearls and sprinkled some Crystal Glamour Dust over the top on the fur trimmed parts of the snowsuit.I added some more Glamour Dust on the spots using a glue pen.I filled the Nestabilities cut shaker frame with some fine Crystal glitter and a few tiny nail gems.
