This week the new Just Add Ink colour challenge was suggested by Di. Her colours for us to use are Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz.
I knew what I wanted to do with this card ... but I was struggling adding the Pool Party ... as it was I ended up having to substitute my seam binding with Soft Sky. Anyway it all came together in the end. Once again I left it to the very last minute to photograph so it was taken in poor light and I've over exposed it in editing - the upside is that you can see the shimmer I added to the Stippled Blossoms :)
This is already in the post to a special birthday girl, although I doubt it's going to make it on time. Happy birthday for Saturday dear Narelle. Hope your boys spoil you thoroughly and your day turns into a whole week of celebrations.
We'd love you to join the colour challenge fun this week. For more inspiration head over to JAI and check out what the design team have posted for you. Don't forget to link up.
As mentioned in my previous post here are a couple more Convention pics (I'll share the last of them next week).
A bit blurry but this is the only pic I have of my beautiful friend (and upline) Christine Blain and myself
Poor lighting has made this a very pink pic - from left Jodene, me, Nikki and Narelle
Look at this bunch of fresh faced girls early Sunday morning - a quick selfie before saying our goodbyes and heading home to our respective States (and Territories)
A quick wrap up of my week ... I had a really lovely Mother's Day and was thoroughly spoiled with lots of kisses and cuddles from the kids, all meals cooked for me, no housework and lots of time to sit and read my book which resulted in a little afternoon nap! The weather was freezing so it was the perfect indoors day. Canberra has cooled significantly this past week! Not at all looking forward to more of the same as Winter gets closer.
Special birthday wishes today to my mum. I'm sure you're watching over us and know we are all thinking of you today.
