Go on and Celebrate!

Hi there!

Well, after a crazy bachelorette weekend and a week of recovery (I'm not as young as I once was) I've managed to get back to my crafty corner - yay! Today's card was made in celebration of a good friend's new home purchase. It's so great to see my friends meeting their loves, finding their homes and starting to meet their little ones!

I'm so glad I came across the Papaertrey Ink papers I used for the colorful background. I created the rectangle centre and frame using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles dies and popped them up using some foam tape.  

I used a sheet of acetate inside the frame and filled it with an assortment of fun sequins and sparkles.  Lastly, I heat embossed the Mama Elephant sentiment with some gold tinsel embossing powder and popped it up on some more foam tape.

And there you have it - a fun celebration card!  I hope you had a great weekend and wish you a fabulous week.

Sending hugs,


  1. This is such a happy, happy shaker card, Lolo!! You should quick run over to Nichole Heady's blog and enter it in the May blog hop challenge. Your rainbow background works perfectly!! Hugs, Darnell

    1. Thanks for your note Darnell! It's so kind of you to give me the heads up :) I've been missing the challenges lately! But seeing as i'm challenging myself with wedding preparations, I figure that's okay. Looking forward to delving back in to the challenges come September. PS - your cards are always lovely but lately they're particularly stunning! Keep up the great work! Hugs!
