Ruby Anniversary

Morning peeps, hope you are all having a fine weekend.  Up early this morning and already done most of my jobs about the house.  Giving the garden a miss at the moment as it is raining!!!  April is definitely living up to it's name - showery!!!  Oh well, I might as well have a little play at my table while Barry is on the golf course.  At One Stop Craft Challenge this week the challenge is "Metallic" and Stamp Something is "Charms" so my little spacer and heart charm hopefully covers them.  Daring Cardmakers are asking for "Die cuts" so I hope by using my Oval Nestibilities and leaf punch that these count.

This is the first time I had done a "thinking" challenge for Crafty Cardmakers. Imagine if you were on a Desert Island for at least 6 months, what crafty essentials would you *need* to have with you? What would you never tire of or get bored with if these were the only things you had? You need to make your ENTIRE creation using only the items you have on your island, items you really couldn't do without.  So here is my list of my essential items
  • White Card - can be adapted so many ways
  • Embossing Folders (On the island I could just sit on them as I would not have a machine! lol)
  • Flowers - no particular kind
  • Stamps & Ink Pad - so versatile - ink pad used for distressing edges
  • Peel-offs (no computer/printer on island)
  • Ribbon - so handy
  • Charms - this could be buttons etc... off your clothes .... lol
  • Leaf Punch - one of my newest purchases and I don't know what I did before having it!!!!!
I am hoping to be back on later today depending if Barry makes me go shopping this afternoon - Boo Hiss - worst nightmare.... lol.
