I spent this past weekend at a lovely retreat and crafted a couple of cards for today;
both have utilized the March Kit-of-the-Month
And I'm sooo glad that my fellow Unity Design Team Members do such a swell job
with Copics and other alcohol markers...makes me feel like I'm doing my part in the 
watercolor and marker section LOL

 Stamp, stamp, cut and paste with this quick card!  I layered on a couple of cool
'tails' across the card using Kiwi Lane templates.  

Let's head over to Shilo Mile's Blog now and see what she has in the works for us today!
Enjoy the hop!

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
