Paw-some Christmas

Hi, everyone! Today I am sharing a a fun shaker card featuring the December DOTM (digi of the month) from Imagine That... Digis by Kris called Happy Howlidays.  I received this adorable image for free since I participated in last month's challenge.


I used the pre-coloured image and sentiment from the Happy Howlidays set and merged it with a winter scene paper from The Paper Shelter.  I added Elizabeth Crafts Warm Diamond Glitter on the mailbox and trees and affixed three silver snowflake sequins.  I die-cut the scene paper with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and filled the shaker with all sorts of loose glitter and sequins from my stash.  


Ooops, look who has sneaked into the photo of my shaker card! That silly elf Eli is a real ham!  He did not see me make the card, and now he is wondering how all those shaker bits got inside to shake around like that. I guess Eli just doesn't want to miss an opportunity to link up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli, Arci, Ron, Daisy, Elizabeth, and Hope in their funny elf antics too!
