These cute icons are attached to strips of acetate, then attached into the box, then I grabbed snowflake die cuts that are all over my desk at the mo' to decrate. ( my desk looks  like a bomb has gone

My Mum's Craft Shop Inspiration

Helllooooo my lovelies.... I am running behind as usual today, and I expect to do so for the rest of this month!! hahaha! 
But, albeit late, I did manage  a make for my Inspiration over at MMCS..... 

sorry about the rubbish light , but its a pretty grey ol' day here on the East coast!!
 So, my card.....
 The card base is cut from the Dienamics Blueprints 20 set, and the next layer is cut from the next sized die. I cut a circle out of the centre using a trusty  circle die, and added a layer of snowy acetate to the aperture.
 I stamped out one of the bears and the mittens using the "Cool Days" stamp set, and coloured them up with my Spectrums. I fussy cut them out raedy to 3d to the top layer of the card when I've finished the construction.
I added a layer of foam tape to the back of the aperture over the acetate, and filled it with sequins and glitter. then I added a layer of blue snowy cardstock (thats been in my stash forever!) to close the layer. This was attached to the front of the card, adding the final images, and sentiment, and finally gems...  (The fact the contents of the shaker managed to find their way out did not impress me!!!!)
so ,there you have it ... y first shaker card in!!!
