Art 'n Soul's Shaker Play Day on Friday was a shaking success! Dianne and Pam made gorgeous and fun shaker card samples -- over 40 of their little kits were sold! Dianne posted beautiful card samples on her blog, "Backporch", that you must go to because she provides step-by-step instructions for them:
