70's Shaker

Oh it's not what you think....
Though in the 70's I was definitely a little shaker, clubbing it most nights Lol!
No... I'm sharing a shaker card that I made for my friend's 70th Birthday


Green happens to be her favourite colour and though I've made plenty of cards this style ... I've never done one for this friend... 


I was going to add one of the little pups as she's another dog lover, but somehow that sprig of leaves just seemed to fit better... It's actually the backing from some masking paper - I used the sticky part when I was doing some water colouring sometime ago... Shows you all the little bits I keep!


My sweet friend Pat is coming today, we'll do some creating, chat and drink a coffee or two... I wish you could join us
I hope you all have a lovely day

Till soon

Such a beautiful card. The colours are gorgeous and the sentiment is perfect. The leaves and twine look great and even though your friend would have liked a dog image I bet she'll just love this x Looking forward hopefully to seeing what you and Pat produce today, in amongst the chat and coffee. I recall last time you cased the Newyork skyline and I thought it was fantastic. Have a great day x
