Shaker Thank You

Pretty day, but SOOOOOO cold! 
I'm spending the day cleaning, not card-making.Boo! But it has to be done.

I'm playing along with the Paper Smooches Anything Goes on the SPARKS Challenge blog.

I made this card to thank a co-worker who is way more tech savvy than her grade partners.  She took the reins last Friday when we were entering scores and assessment data.  All I can say is thank heavens for Melissa!!  We would have been there for hours figuring out columns and percentages! 

She is a big morning coffee fan so I thought she would enjoy this.

I hit up my Pinterest boards for inspiration on this, but used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color a bunch of the coffee cups from the Paper Smooches Warm Hearts set and piled them in the shaker instead of sequins or glitter.  So cute!! The PS Thanks die is cut from black CS and the paper is American Crafts.

I'm also playing along with Virginia's View challenge since the theme there is shaker cards.
Have a good day!  
Stay safe and warm!!
