Dear Joy

Thank you for such a sweet, cute Hello Kitty card! My jaw dropped when I opened my mail yesterday and this card was in it. Look at all the work Joy did! This was for Teri's card swap and Joy was my swap partner. She made me a shaker card using one of the new Hello Kitty sizzlit

dies. This one is Mimmy who likes to go shopping. I can totally relate to that. LOL! I don't know how she made the shaker part but maybe she has a tutorial on her blog. She even embossed the solid pink part of the card. So cute!!!

And yesterday, I cleaned my storage and craft room area. I've been getting tons of catalogs and samples and I was forced to get the old stuff out so I could put the new things up. It's still a mess but looks much better than it did last week. My poor husband has to make several trips up and down the stairs to dump all the old catalogs and empty boxes.

I picked up a couple of the Hello Kitty embosslits from the store the other day so I made this after all the cleaning I did. I like how the die embosses and cuts at the same time.


I used Coredinations cardstock for her face and sanded it to let the white show through. The pillow box is a Sizzix die. Well, I'm headed to the mall today since I cleaned yesterday. Have a great Sunday!!!

Hiya Cheryl!! Your card from Joy is very nice! I also like your pillow box. So creative! But...I don't have that embosslit ={ So did you go shopping because you were rewarding yourself for cleaning, or because you made room for more stuffs?
