New Beginnings

The House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog is having a "New Beginnings"  Challenge.  
I decided to join in the challenge as I have quite a few "New" things going on in this "New" year.  

For the challenge I decided to try my hand at a shaker card.  On the House Mouse yahoo group that I belong to, one of the members made shaker New Year's cards.  So as I have never made one before, I thought that would be a great project to do.  

So here's my "Shake Me Up" card to Celebrate my
new beginnings.

This challenge is for "New Beginnings", well I have a few "new" things going on.  I started this New Year as a "new" designer for the Whimsy Stamps Digital DT.  YEAH !!!!!!

This is a close up of my House Mouse image that I used.  
(Sorry about the glare from the flash)
