Tilda's Playing in the Shaker Snow!

So, I was on a roll... completely jamming your dashboards, and then I stopped! Sorry to be gone for so long :)
I've been really uncomfortable as this baby settles in and grows BIGGER and BIGGER! My hips ache all night, my ribs are sore, the bub has hiccups ALWAYS and I just want to rest :) (No such thing in my house!)

So, the other night I couldn't sleep... not a wink. I was so sore I got out of bed, and made a card. Finished it at 4:30am but decided I'd try sleep before posting it! I've made a shaker card, bit late for a recent challenge but at least I was inspired! Kept it simple, have no idea who this is for or if I even 'NEED' it, but it'll find a home somewhere!

I'm entering a few of Christmas themed challenges, Paper Sundaes and Simply Magnolia. And ATS Wednesday Challenge & Basic Grey both have Anything Goes challenges.

This one shows the gorgeous pearl card that I recently won from Scrapbooking Allsorts.. and some stickles I put on the inside of the acetate so there's always a bit of snow.

 Here's a close-up. I used flowersoft for the 'snow'.. it doesn't shake all that well, but it looks great! Love that little deer in the corner :)

Have a lovely Wednesday... I'm done with Christmas shopping - if only my Kmart online order would get delivered :/

Fab shaker card - I love that little Reindeer I've got a sizzix bigz die with it on!!

Pregnancy can be a real pain in the butt - hopefully you'll get some rest soon. Have you tried an afternoon nap - used to work wonders for me. Or even just snuggling on the sofa with a blanket and a film you really really want to see- chances are you'll fall asleep!!

Happy Christmas! x
