Shake it up!

Well, what a crazy few days it has been here in Newfoundland and Labrador.  Super cold temps, tons of snow and power outages.  Hats off to line crews and other workers who are working around the clock to safely restore power.  Sometimes forgotten are the communications people who are also working around the clock to keep up informed.  A special shout-out to my daughter who is the Sr. Communications Adviser for NL Hydro; she too is working long hours to keep us all in the know.

Our power is back on for now so I thought I'd better get this posted!

Today's challenge at Catherine and Cathy Create is all about Birthday Cards.  We've all been so into Christmas crafting for the last while it is now time to change gears.

This is my take on a card I saw here; a shaker card is sooo much fun!  Here's my card:

Here's another one:
