At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Kenny K as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

As soon as I saw this adorable Polar Bear by Kenny K I knew I would have to make a shaker card.I’ve not made one in ages and they seem to have made a resurgence in the crafting world more recently,mostly filled with sequins as part of a newish trend too but I couldn’t find mine 😦 Does that imply I have have too much craft stuff?NEVER!Things have been kept simple here with the White on White (not done that in a quite a while too),minimal colouring in pale blues,clear micro beads added to the shaker element and clear dew drops for a cool watery feel.The sentiment I printed out using Word to give this a male theme with the intention of it being for my DH in preparation for Father’s Day 🙂
