Shaker cards are the best. Everyone goes bananas when they get them. I especially love the balloons all around the window. Super fun!

Eep! I love it, Karen! I'm so delighted that you made your first ever shaker card for my birthday!! It's adorable! I love the clouds inside the circle and your colorful floating balloons!! Great job!

I've only posted one before and have just finished making my second-ever shaker card. You are so right about the sequins! Like a fool, I bought a package of about 1015 Darice sequins. I mean, can I blame that on Hammy, coz that was really dumb at my age?! I had better get busy with the shaker cards before they go out of style!

Thank you for your sweet dedicated post and for linking up with the surprise party!! You are a good friend and I love and appreciate you, too!! Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Hugs, Darnell
