Snow Buddy Shaker for FM 30

Hi Everyone and Happy Halloween.  I hope that it won't be too scary out there for you today. 

We need to watch for all those little ghosts and goblins that will be out this evening scaring up their treats because we don't want any tricks.

My card today is, yes, another Snow Buddy (they are so cute!!!).  I have wanted to do a shaker card and finally was able to do one over the weekend.

This card also is based on the challenge at Friday Mash Up.  The challenge was a sketch but also to REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.   So I did just that.  I used only scraps and embellishments that were already opened. It's a great way to use up those scraps and who doesn't have some (in most cases probably allot). 

I would like to acknowledge Sage over at Stamping Madly for doing a great video on making a shaker card.  Thanks Sage.
