Ruby's Rainbow - Metal

Hello again,

It's time for another challenge at Ruby's Rainbow, and because I am still on holidays, I have all fingers and toes crossed that this post goes live as scheduled.

This fortnight's challenge is:

Metal

I love using charms on cards, so it's not hard to imagine what I did for something metal on my card. Here is the card I created for my DT work


The little metal charm says "Made with Love". This card was absolutely made with love, for it's for a dear friend of mine who lives in Canada. Deanna and I met over the internet about 10 years ago, and in 2007 I travelled to Canada to meet her - quite a scary prospect to travel so far to stay with a stranger for 3 weeks, what would have happened if we'd hated each other on sight?? Fortuntately we hit it off and spend our time together solidifying our friendship. In 2009 she returned the favour, travelling to Australia to stay with my husband and me. I am forever wishing she lived closer so I could see her often, emails are just not the same!

This charm was bought online from a store here in Australia called Scrap Matrix. To say they are fuelling my addiction to online shopping may be an understatement. :)

I hope you'll join us at Ruby's Rainbow this fortnight - I can't wait to see everyone's creativity when it comes to adding some metal.
