Shine

Can you believe that it is the middle of August already!?  Since it is, that means it is time for our mid-month inspiration post on the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog.  If you haven't been playing along, there is still plenty of time.  Anything Goes as long as it is Christmas related.  Here is my inspiration for you:
 I just love shaker cards, don't you?  They're so fun!  This next pic shows the shaker in action.

Addicted to Stamps #157--make your mark (ink)
MFT #241--sketch

Word Art Wednesday #196--anything goes with uplifting sentiment

Crafting with an Attitude--anything goes
Sparkles Christmas Challenge #55--no patterned paper
Christmas Cards All Year 'Round--snowflakes
Southern Girls Challenge--shiny, blingy, happy things
Mod Squad--heat emboss

Supplies:
