Shake It Up & SSS New Release!

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I feel like I'm getting back on track a bit & finding my card making love again thankfully.
I think life has just been so sad & busy I'm forgetting to make some "me time" to spend in my favorite room surrounded by pretty flowers, papers, stamps etc, I do love my pretty craft room :)

It's Wednesday which means .........
& this week our challenge is
For this challenge we would like to see some shaker style creations, you can shake some ink sprays and give your projects a spritz or use an action wobble to make something shake! Whatever you decide to shake we will be looking forward to seeing it!

  goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.
I have chosen to use my Cropodile & Party Raffia as my featured products on today's card, I got a bit carried away & almost totally covered up my eyelets which are around my shaker frame.
I've used one of the cute mini Gorjuss Girl stamps from the DoCrafts range which is about the size of sweet Tilda, & I've added Prima Micro Beads to my shaker,

The copic colours I've used are - 
skin -E11, E00, E000, R12, hair -E44, E43, E41, coat - W4, W2, W0, dress - R83, R81, RV000, umbrella - C3, C1, C00 / R83, R81, RV000

Simon Says Stamp

 It's new release day at Simon Says Stamp & the new exclusive collection is called Reason To Smile.

To see the full release just head straight over to Simon Says Stamp.

I have created a really quick & simple card to feature a new large background stamp called "Peeps Background" which is so cute. 
Have you noticed what is odd about this card? No embellishments!!!
I photographed my card quickly & put it away thinking "out of sight out of mind" as I know if I could see I wouldn't be able to resist adding flowers, pearls, bows, which is what always happens when I attempt a CAS card.
That's it from me today peeps, thanks for stopping by
