Well its the first Saturday of the month, and that means a new challenge over at Krafty Hands.............Charms!
What you probably dont realise is that you can use anything that is on the Krafty Hands website, and there is a lot, and you would probably be very surprised at what you already have that you can use.............
erm Toreads, Strawberry kisses, one of the guys cds, or stamps,........... why not pop over here and find out what you have already?

Here's my offering, bearing in mind that this months challenge is Charms...........

The image itself is the guys Stampography Christmas Snowglobe stamp, its beautiful  I Stamped in white archival ink onto some dark grey Shimmer Cardstock, added some Cosmic Shimmer white embossing powder, and then mounted it onto some holographic card. I used some of Crafters Companions Centura Pearl cardstock for the base, and made a border from scraps of holographic, and shimmer card, with an EK Sucess border punch. I added some Ivory ribbon, and 6 silver charms. I kept the eye focused on the card and image, by using peel off corners.
This is going to my mother - in - law for Christmas, she adores Charms!!

Right by the time you read this I will be either getting dusty with Aly's Inky Fingers, or getting inky with Barbara Greys Clarity stamps, oh what is a girl to do!! And trying to avoid those who are going to the GNPE at Harrogate this weekend, looking for Macaroons, sorry guys, couldnt get hold of any rice paper!!

Shopping calls, have fun, and do enter, you would be surprised whats on offer!

I would definitely go for the Clarity stamps. Thank you for your visit and encouraging comments. I have got used to the strength and quality of Clarity, and when I needed to use a sentiment stamp from a free set, I forgot they were not as strong, ending up with two separate pieces - oops! I was very impressed with Hobby Art, though, as I had no idea when I bought the stamps. They replied to my email almost instantly, and immediately asked for my address so they could send the replacements. Anyone can have a problem, but it is how they deal with it that matters, and Hobby Art have been excellent. Have a good week. xx Maggie
