This is another card featuring the Memory Box, Massa Leaf Frame die. I inked it with the Invild Bolme chalk inks again and then tucked a snippet of hessian over the aperture. Once again, I used some teensy tags that came with the First Edition Boho 6x6 paper stack.
Added some more flowers from my never ending stash. Staring at the card photo as I type this post, I wish I had just added one. Three is a bit of overkill, methinks.
I have not added a sentiment yet. I thought the two little birds on the tag makes it perfect for an Anniversary card. I will add a suitable insert once home again as we do not have a printer up here..

A few readers have wondered how I craft in an RV. I have mentioned B4 that I craft in the bunkie (our 8 x 10 foot guest bunkhouse). I work on a folding 2 x 4 foot table from Costco, where I have my two long Rubbermaid under the bed boxes, sitting out on the futon bed. When company comes, the table gets put outside and is employed as a bar surface. The Rubbermaid boxes slide under the bed and the room is ready for your visit! You can see the lids just beside the boxes.
The long bin on the right of the screen holds my little one page photo albums from the Dollar Store. Some hold die cuts I have rolled off at home, and one holds images waiting to be coloured. Another holds images I have already coloured! The pink box is my pencil crayons and nibs; the middle larger box holds some embellies; the pink plastic file envelope is some bling, and the back bin is some stamps and 2 Momento ink pads and blocks, with my chalks perched on top.
Next long bin to the left holds some 6x6 pads of cardstock and DP. There is some Xmas DP and regular everyday DP as well. Across the center of that box are my finished or almost finished cards. Behind that are my copics and other pen. Tools and glue tape etc are at the back.
Far bin on the left of the screen is some prefolded corrugated cards and Xmas embellies, The blue bag is ribbon...hahahahha...Too funny, considering how I rarely use ribbon! I don't know what came over me to pack up this much ribbon! It does hold jute and twine as well...but still!
Here is where I work...just across from the bed! I was painting the dresser and night table with Annie Sloan chalk paint just B4 this photo. The Ott light usually sits on the dresser but the wax has to cure for 4 or 5 days. There is just enough room for a wastebasket at the right edge of the table! We hope to add a TV in here next year. It will sit angled across the dresser so it can be seen from the bed.
Now, here is the bunkie with my craft supplies put away under the bed. It is set up for my youngest daughter and my two grandchildren (arrived today). Little Miss C sleeps in the top bunk, my daughter on the double bed futon and Little Mr P camps out on a thick foam mattress on the floor. I do have to slide the night table over to sit alongside the dresser, to accommodate him...but this gives you an idea. The sheets and quilts are stacked on the bed...This Grandma was too tired from painting the dresser to make the beds up this time! lol
You can just see the edge of Little Mr P's mattress tucked under the blue futon.
Here is the rest of Little Mr P's bed...
That will have to wait as I need to give my hands a rest for a bit though!
Oh look, there is a slim sized 12x12 iris cart under the dresser...I forget what is in there!
The dresser and night table were a find off Craigslist. The night table drawer handle does not match so I am watching for another one. I did Annie Sloan it up a little, to try to get it to blend in!
We have just stripped wallpaper off the walls. They now need the drywall seams sanded, as well as various screw holes and marks need patched as well. A new coat of paint will follow. Then I will have to pester DH to bring up some of the left over baseboards from our house remodel, and lay it in here!
If you stuck with me so far, good on you! This is crafting at the lake...bunkie style! Got to run as I am being called in to play Horse-Opoly...a horse mad little girls Monopoly game!!! lol
