tutorials on her You tube channel.  I watched and followed her
tutorial which I have added for you if you would like to see it. 





 my flowers are slightly looser so I will keep
practising until I get it right. Here is another look at my attempt.

Mini Shaker Card Toppers!!


Good morning my dear friends.  I'm here today to share some cute mini shaker card
toppers with you!!  I  made these but can't take credit for the idea,
 it came from the lovely Tmika known as Scrapdaworld over on YouTube!  
You can find all Tmika's amazing creative vidoes HERE   I'm just so grateful for
all her wonderful Tutorials.






Anyways I digress!!!!  I used my small photo die to cut these out and snippets
of papers from my scrap box for the front covers.  My flowers are all from 
I am Roses as is the large leaves to the right of the toppers.   All the flowers
have been tipped with gesso and glamour dust added whilst wet.

My little words are a selection of  Tim Holts and Crafters Companion.

I hope you like these cuties and if you do please pop over to Tmika and leave her
her some love or even become one of her subscribers.
