Little Red Wagon Challenge #290 ~ To Die For

It is another Wednesday again.  They just seem to be coming faster and faster.  So, welcome to another new week and a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Susie and her challenge is "TO DIE FOR".  Now I know that doesn't sound good but I know she is wanting us to use a die cutting machine on our projects, either manual or electronic ~ she doesn't want us to literally die for crafting.  The English language is so very complicated with so many meanings of the same word and so very different.  Okay, grammar lesson aside, it is unusual for me not to die cut something on my cards but for some reason I was having a creative block and could not think of what I wanted to do.  I began surfing Pinterest and YouTube for ideas and finally decided to jump on the bandwagon of one of the hottest trends ~ shaker cards.  It was fun and I really like the outcome.

Card Stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Doodlebug Springtime

everything was closed but am going to get some better stuff soon
