Just us Girls #201

 photo JUGS201picA.jpg

This week's Just Us Girls challenge is hosted by Lisa and she has a great technique for us to try out this week:  shaker cards!   Here is the link to a tutorial on SCS.

I have never made a shaker card, though I have admired them from a distance, so it was a delight to finally make one!   Love the final product - no pun intended :)  Getting there was a bit of an issue as my beads did not want to cooperate and were sticking to the dimensional tape at the top of the heart until I took it apart and knocked them all down.  Thankfully, we are all happy now LOL!

The rest of the  JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.  

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

I haven't ever tried one of these - they scare me! Yours is perfect - great shape and perfect papers to go with it. You definitely need to make some more of them in the future - like a snow one for winter/Christmas. Pretty card Marisa. Hugz!
