Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I am still recovering from my four-day feeding frenzy.  One of the good (??) things about hosting Thanksgiving dinner is you get lots of yummy leftovers.  It’s the pie that does me in.  My mom makes wonderful pies, especially cherry pie with cherries from her own tree.  It’s a good thing Thanksgiving is just once a year!

I haven’t done much stamping over the past month, so when I sat down to make a card for this hop I was kinda stumped.  I decided to take a look at one of my favorite challenge sites, The Paper Players, for a jump start.  They have a sketch challenge this week, which is just what I needed to get me going.

I thought it might be fun to make a shaker card.  When I saw the Mica Flakes Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalog, I knew I wanted to make a shaker card with the Snow Place stamp set, which is in the Annual Catalog.

I started with a Soft Sky card base and stamped the snowflake images from Snow Place randomly.  The base of the shaker part is a piece of Fancy Frost Specialty dsp and I lightly sponged some Soft Sky ink onto it.  I stamped the cute snowman and cut him out with the coordinating Snow Friends Framelits dies.

The sentiment is from an old Paper Pumpkin stamp set and was cut out with the new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  A bit of pretty Silver Glitter Ribbon and Real Red Baker’s Twine finished it off.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.
