Hey there my lovely blog buddies. Man I was in a funk yesterday. Horrid morning, doctors, blah blah blah. Anyhoo, I needed a wee cheer up and what better way, than sharing a cute kiddies card I made for Zac's best pal recently for his 6th birthday. 

Yep, it's a shaker (mean tease, I know, the reveal is coming!) Can you guess what's lurking beneath all those gorgeous gold stars? Non other, than the cutest wee Lion you could ever imagine. I just LOVE the way Kristy draws animals. That gal is the bomb! Check out her Some Odd Girl fabulousness for more cute characters like this! Here's the reveal...

A sweet, simple, cute as, lil' birthday boy card. Zac's pal is nutty about Lion's so you can imagine how well that went down! I added some 'silver lining' to the cute woodchip clouds with some Wink of Stella across the bottom of both clouds (you get a peek of this in the first pic). I also added some to the 'Special' on the woodchip sentiment. Which I'll give you a closer peek at below.

Card Recipe:
Ink Medium ~ Promarkers
Some Odd Girl ~ On Safari
Lil' Inker ~ Stitched Circle Die
Queen & Co ~ Shaker Card Base
SpiegelMom Scraps ~ Woodchips
SpiegelMom Scraps ~ Large Gold Sequins
SpiegelMom Scraps ~ Gold Stardust Sequins

Today's post comes courtesy of 'Squirrel's World' Random Challenge. Because it's just oh so perfect for that! As soon as I spotted this yesterday, I knew I had to blog this wee cutie I made the other day. So, here it is, and I'm off for a hot cuppa. It's crisp here today, and there's the smell of wet leaves in the air, Autumn is here!

Hugs to you all from Autumnal New Zealand, Wends x

My dear friend, this is just the sweetness my heart needs tonight! That is absolutely the most darling lion... made even lovelier by your gorgeous card. Shaker cards are whimsical delights and I love that yours is filled with starry love. The sparkling, love-struck clouds are adorable! This was probably the kiddo's favorite card.. and I'm sure he will be tickled every time he sees it. :o) Beautifully done once again, Wends. I love this to sparkly bits.

Hugs and blessings,
