A Special Card For A Special Person

Think with this post I'm going to finish my adventures in scrapbooking for April.
Originally I've been planning to create quite a different card, at least not a shaker one:) But, as they say, you never know what you will end up with in the end. And for the first time in my card making career, I've decided to use a stamp. Think this additional item completes the card. 
So please welcome the latest shaker card of mine:

Cottage Cutz Birthday Party Bear

Thanks to the recent discount on Cottage Cutz dies at Mavelu store, I've made up my mind to purchase a die I've dreamed of for quite some time now - a Birthday Party Bear.
You get not only a bear, but also some other lovely things connected with a birthday party: a balloon, a flower in a pot, a cupcake with a candle on it, and a gift box. Of course, all these items can be used in different card projects (which I will definitely try to do in the near future;)).
For my first project with this die I've decided to use all of its items. 
And this is how the following lovely birthday card has been created.

Hope a future owner will like it:)

For the time being, I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

As Simple As It Can Be - Fox

Wow, it's been a while since my last post here ...

This simple, yet lovely card was influenced by the following challenges:
The ABC Challenge: H is for Happy Birthday

The only thing left to decide - who will be a lucky owner of this wonderful card;)

Shaker Card Balloon

The idea of creating another shaker card came to me while I was still working on the one with the clouds. Since my creations are mainly dedicated to children, this card includes some items from this theme as well.

Thanks to a new challenge of Everybody-Art-Challenge blog, a couple of pearls found themselves on a new shaker card with a cute little elephant holding a balloon.
Hoping for this card to find its owner as soon as possible.

For the time being, I would like to submit it into the following challenges:
Come and Get it: Make a Card for a Child
The Friday Mashup: Congrats with a little Shake
Everybody-Art-Challenge: #320 Pearls theme
Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes Birthday!

Shaker Card Clouds

Inspired by one of Tina's shaker cards, I've decided to make my own one, a card that will look practically the same. Well ... being short of some cutting dies and stamps, I was pushed to create something with the tools which were at hand. Like this a new unique shaker card has been created:
Of course, followed by another one the very next day (to be honest, my favorite one:)):
 Guess both of them are worth being shared with Najlepsi Par:
In addition, I would like to submit the cards into these challenges:
The Friday Mashup: Congrats with a little Shake
