Look Whoo's Arrived

So, I was sat at my desk, trying to think of something to use for the
Make The Day Special 'recycling' challenge,
when some sequins caught my eye.

I used the little press-top bag, that the sequins came in, as a shaker element on my card.


I filled my bag with some of the 'Spring Time' mix sequins and some stars - 
then folded the top over and hid the seal by stapling a piece of card on top.
Then I attached my 'shaker' to my card with glue dots.

Did I over-do the owls?  It is my favourite, little stamp right now, but in my defense
the little beige one at the bottom is there to cover up a black ink smudge from
when I stamped the sentiment!!!
 

Both the sequin mix and the owl stamp  (Mama Elephant Just Hatched)

Oh  shoot!  It doesn't look like either of those things are in stock right now,
but pop on over to the store anyway and see what they do have.
Lots of delicious stamps and goodies that are hard to track down here in the UK.
