Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #19-Great Challenge, Desert Island! If you were marooned on a desert island want would you want with you. I would want a picture of my family, a bottle of wine and a glass to drink it in, chocolate, and my favorite stamping stuff like CS in lots of colors, Basic Grey x6 packs so I could make miss you and thank you cards(for when I am rescued), lots of cute already stamped and digi images to conserve space, MY COPICS I don't leave home without them, my cuttlebug and folders, a good cutter, tape gun with lots of extra tape in case sand sticks to it, pop dots, mini glue dots, my Nesties couldn't live without them, and lots of my fav embellishments, ribbons, brads, sticker pearls in lots of colors, bling, craft flowers, Stickles, white Signo pen, punches 5 0r 6 of them, and glitter pens. These are my MUST HAVES and used most of them on this card! After making this list I realized being marooned on a desert island must be like going on a stamping weekend far from home and the car is full and you can't bring everything you think you can't live without !!!!!

You can interpret this however you like as long as it has something to do with weather, flowers blooming, rain drops falling, be creative! Don't forget the only thing we require is that you use Basic Grey Paper on your creation!
The ladies have really out done themselves with creations to inspire you this week so be sure to stop by and show them some love.
I loved this challenge because I couldn't wait to use this cute image from Phindys Digi Stamps. I have it colored for awhile but just not the right opportunity to use it until this challenge. I went for a colorful card this time instead of my usual pastels. I knew I wanted a bright yellow slicker. I was lucky to find great BG paper to match after coloring my image first then looking through the paper. Sometimes doing it this way bites me in the butt if you KWIM! These glitter buttons are new from American Crafts and I have every color because I love the sparkle of them.

It was really fun and easy making an easel card. I don't know why I didn't try before this. These 2 stamps I used were from a new set I just got this week from TGF. I couldn't wait to ink them up! I also couldn't resist popping up the birds and his hat like they actually in the air. It took some playing around but I even figured out a way to have the girl lay flat and then be brought back upright when I give the card to someone. The DP is the new paper from BG, Kioshi. I love, love, love everything about it, the colors, the designs it is just beautiful. I love these little Prima roses that I stumbled upon at Michaels, who would guess they would have something new and current there.
