Ruby, ruby, ruby!

Morning all and how are you this bright and sunny hump day?
Hasn't it got cold over the last couple of days?
I had a good day at work yesterday but what a light weight, having a wee 40 winks before tea!  Mind you it was a good thing as it meant I could get a few jobs done last night before sitting down to watch who was leaving the jungle!
We had our Christmas lunch at work too which was yummy, lots of Christmas food to sample in time for the festive celebrations.  I love our Christmas dinner sandwiches and sausage rolls but they're a tad high on the calorie front (As is everything that tastes good, in my eyes!).

Today I have my regular man mountain of ironing with crampons at the ready and a couple of films downloaded from sky, the time should fairly fly by.  Then a bit of tidying before maybe, if I'm lucky a wee bit of crafting.
Whilst I am keeping busy I thought I'd share this Ruby Anniversary card with you.

It's cream and red as I am always told by my mum you can't put red and white together, off white apparently is OK and cream is even better.  I have again used my die set from Papertrey ink, all the dies work together to create the shaker rather than faffing making it all yourself.  I really enjoy playing with this set and can see so many different ways of using it, all I need now is the time!

It only now remains for me to wish you all the best for this Wednesday, back tomorrow with more crafty fun and games, have a good one.  x

Erika, this is a stunning card, it's simple but classy. Oh I have to say I am enjoying only doing only our ironing, it's hard to see the pile in the basket, but not my job any more. Glad you enjoyed your Christmas lunch. Hazel xx

Good afternoon Erika,
Freezing cold, sun shining, blue sky, brilliant after the weeks and weeks of dark, rainy weather.
Fantastic card, love everything about it. I agree cream & red better than ... white & red. Like the idea for the shaker bit.
Happy ironing!!!
