Sock-Monkey Shaker Card!

I have to make a quickie post tonight.. as I haven't got much time to get it in for a challenge, as usual ;) I made a shaker-card to go with a baby book that my sister Silje will get soon in the mail from me. She's not my sister by blood, but of heart This image fits her perfectly, she's a cheeky one..
She's she sweetest girl I know, but she has an amazing sense of humour wich is a wee bit sadistic... If you stub your toe there will be no end of the cackle laughter! Silje & Ragnar (she's multi-handicapped & Ragnar wich is a baby doll / puppet, follows wherever she goes ~ or rather wheels around) will surely appreciate the voice box on this book... *lol* I'm sure Silje will think it's him who's doin' the laughing :)

I'm entering my card at:
Stamps/Images: Digital image from Odds & Soxlets - Baby Emilia Copyright EricaMartyn CDACPC17 freebie. Magnolia 'BakgrundsSwirl Bröllup' rubberstamp. Papirloftet textstamp (=You are unique).
Papers: misc Bazzill cardstocks, and a plain passepartout card blank. Webster's Pages - Petite Papers 6x6 combo pack 'Postcards from Paris & Sweet as Cherry Pie'. Handmade paper from Notabene, and also some giftwrapping hearts paper!
Embellishments/Tools: Red microbeads. 3D foam tape. Nille dekór butterfly. QuicKutz Revolution die 'Sunburst' REV-0049. 
And I've used Tim holtz Distress Ink Markers & pads to color and distress the card & image, and I found out that the markers has excellent writing-nibs as well as the brush tip! :)


  1. Flott kort. Ha en fin dag :)

  2. Adorable! I love the bright colours.
    I've got some passepartout cards years ago and I find it difficult to make nice cards out of them. Perhaps I should start making shaker cards. thank you very much for this inspiration!

  3. Så flott dette var. Navnet har du skrevet det for hånd? Nydelig.

  4. thanks for the kind comments :)

    @Wenche ~ ja navnet er skrevet for hånd, er ikke så glad i håndskrift, livredd for å ødelegge hele kortet ~ så jeg tyr mest til stempler eller diecuts ~ men man må jo teste sine egne grenser iblandt ;)

  5. This is lovely thanx for joining us at Craft your days away and good luck..
