christmas cacti shaker

Not one for making Christmas cards when it's not really Christmas-time, (though the crazy weather in MI at the moment would sure inspire holiday cards - geesh - got outta there just in time but my poor Dad is wearing a jacket in the house cuz the power/heat went out too!) but I got some goodies from Spellbinders to play with and when I saw the dome in this die I couldn't get "snow globe" outta my mind!

Penny Black PP
acetate
sequins
twine
white embossing powder

So why not cacti in the snow? I added some white heat embossed dots to the BG panel and some acetate to the die cut front panel and created a little shaker to mimic a snow globe. There's just something fun about cacti isn't there? Only from afar of course ;)


Thank you Team Spellbinders for the fun cacti to create with. I've another creation tomorrow.

I'm joining the fun at:
Mod Squad - Simply Clean
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Texture
ABC Christmas - I for ice (guess it's actually snow, but with the weather in MI right now...)
Crafty Hazel's Christmas Challenge - April

Just a brilliant idea - it is after all sunny at Christmas for some people, so I love the mash up between 'traditional' Christmas with the snowglobe and the sunny Christmas with the cacti! xx
