Holiday Shaker Card and a School Project

What else is new - another last minute project from me .... This time I combined both teh sketch and the inspiration picture from Your Next Stamp to create this shaker card. The sketch really looks like a snowglobe to me and I love shaker cards, so I went to work.... And here is my result:

I used Paper Smooches stamps. The trees are actually green, you see this better below and its holiday confetti from Michaels, as are the little snowflakes. The snowglobe base is in real life more yellow, but looks like orange in the picture... I added wink of Stella to the white parts of the snowman's hat and that you can't see either...

Here you can see the green trees:

As luck will have it, my card fits the The Card Concept challenge perfectly 
1.) A TAG or a CARD with a tag on it
2.) Snowmen, snow or any other "wintery" theme! 
My card goes into the CAS category, of course.
I like it, its cute!

I am also linking this card with this weeks Simon Says challenge - Anything Goes


And now I wanted to share a project I made with my son on the weekend. I actually thought I would be done with those school projects by now, after all he is already in 8th grade. But he recently fractured his hand and needed help. The theme was Taiga Diorama and that is what we created:

I am always wondering what those poor parents do that don't have a ton of crafting stuff at home.....

I came out really cool, don't you think so? I for my part love it - It gotta be an A+ - what do you think?

Cornelia...your card is just too darn cute and I love that you made it into a shaker card, so festive. And your son's project is just so amazing, being a teacher I would have to give it an A+ too. Thank you so much for playing along with us at The Card Concept.

What a fun shaker card Cornelia!
Love the diarama, is 8th grade high school? Last time I drew a pic for my daughter's history project (HenryVIII) she got an A and the history teacher gave me one too!

Your snow globe is awesome, and I especially love the "snow" you added. Super cute! Thanks for joining us this week at The Card Concept :)

Klar doch, wenn man so gut ausgestattet ist, geht so manches viel leichter aber man muß erst einmal "die" Idee haben! Bestimmt bekommt dein Sohn eine gute Note dafür!
Auch dein Schüttel-Kärtchen ist super niedlich!
