Just Add Ink #207 - Just Add a Sketch

Happy Friday bloggy friends ~

I had a huge, and really special day yesterday.  Delicious lunch with fabulous company and a lovely view, followed by a Max Brenner dessert - can you say yuuuuumm?!  Then a couple of hours enjoying a massage and facial, followed by dinner out with different, yet just as fabulous company.  What a day. Thank you to all my beautiful family and friends.  I'm very blessed to have you in my life.

I'm here to share the latest Just Add Ink challenge with you today.  Kim gave us a lovely sketch to play with this week.

I pulled out the retired Tea For Two dsp - such pretty colours.  Base is Island Indigo and because I used a mat of Very Vanilla c/s I inked my doily in Vanilla (non SU) as well - I do love matchy matchy. That doily got a liberal and very glittery spray of Shimmer Mist too.  I finished the Tag Topper punched piece with VV seam binding and a little II twine.

I knew this card was going in the post so I've kept it fairly flat with only the doily and sentiment raised slightly.  Less bulk means less damage in transit.  One hopes!

Pop over to JAI and check out the other design team creations for this week.  Be sure to link your entry up so we can visit you, as we do enjoy that.

I'm off to a fancy dress 'milestone' birthday party on Saturday night.  The theme is 80's or 90's - I'm guessing the shoulder pads, big hair and purple eye shadow are going to make an appearance - eeeek! I won't be posting pics lol.

Thanks for visiting today, enjoy your weekend - hope you have fun plans!


  1. Ooh doily DSP and tea lace doily are a fab match P, and I love that you dyed your doily to match. Special little details like that really do make something extra special! xxx

  2. Such a beautiful and soft card, I bet the recipient loved it.
    I'm glad you enjoyed your day and I hope you have fun time tonight :)

  3. Hi Patrice, your card is so pretty! Lovely fresh colours and shimmery doily. I hope you have a great time tomorrow. xx

  4. Totally gorjus card Patrice. Love it. Hope you did have a speccy day.
    As may have some slow poke blog pals late to the cause....but know that you were definitely in their thoughts. ooxx

  5. Ooh like this one Patrice - very girly and vintage but totally you. Hope the 80's night was fun (wistful sigh).

    You should catch up with the CAS online card class it was absolutely worth every cent (oh, except all the supplies I HAD to have afterwards). Interesting that you are on the same path food wise as we are. I hope we are saving money and my daughter is certainly loving the variety. You are so right about being organised over the weekend but it does pay off. I am interested to hear if you decide on a Thermomix - I have only seen it in action recently and my daughter has tasted the results and loved it (bread I think). Not sure I could justify ignoring the cupboard-ful of appliances I already have in favour of just one.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I love reading them!
