Just Add Ink #303 - Just Add anything with E
It's been a good week! The twins had their immunisations on Wednesday afternoon and all went well, surprisingly. I'm still getting out there running every other day. The weather has been lovely. I have the best friends ever....! I'll elaborate on that another time.
The new challenge over at Just Add Ink kicking off today is from Tina. She wants us to add anything with an E to our projects. I've gone with the obvious EASTER given the time of year. However, you could choose embellishment, embossing, eggs, elephants.....you get the idea.
I really wanted to make an Easter card for my 'Adorable Godson'. And every year I remember I'm super short on any stamps related to Easter despite the extensive supplies in my craft room. Lucky I picked up the SAB Honeycomb Hello set that has this cute guy in it. He's got a little sparkle because I stamped him onto Shimmery White c/s. I also relied on my Oval Dies to create an egg shape to my focal area.
I made a Gate Fold card - in keeping with my effort to create a wider variety of fancy folds this year - mentioned in this post.
I wish I could remember the name of the designer paper I've used. I wanted something soft because Adorable Godson is still only a baby. Hopefully the pics show you how the white 'egg' locks into the larger lemon 'egg' to keep the card closed.
It was pretty difficult to photograph without shadows, so apologies for that. Here it is open with lots of space to write my message before locking it closed again. Righto I can get this in the post along with the cuddly bunny and some little choccie eggs now - I've been super organised and had it all ready for weeks!
If you'd like to join this fun challenge pop over to JAI and see what it's all about. We love to visit your blogs and share some comment love.
See you back here again next week!
