Lots of Hugs

My lifelong BFF is going through a really rough time right now caring for her aging parents as well as working.

This super cute die set Spellbinder's April Small Die of the Month selection. The flower, circle and leaf die cuts are all a part of this set.

The stamped sentiment is really old, the copyright on the box says 2003, it is from Hero Arts.

I made my own little template and used it to guide me as I cut the layers of the card. I have 5 layers of white 110 pound paper for the shaker element. 

I am entering this card into this challenge: Retro Rubber Challenge Blog - Challenge - 84 - Inspiring  

I was inspired by April Showers bringing May Flowers.


  1. Ohh!! Love, love this sweet and beautiful shaker card, these cards are always fun to create and to receive.
    The pattern papers and colors you chose are perfect for this sweet Spring card.
    Thank you for sharing with us at RETRO RUBBER, hope you play again soon.
