Just Add Ink #305 - Just Add Sympathy
Another Friday is here...which means a week from today I'll be in Sydney for On Stage with lots of my crafty friends. So looking forward to seeing a few of my gorgeous Just Add Ink girlfriends too. That's always the highlight.
Speaking of which, we have a new challenge for you all today from Jan. As much as we don't like to create these cards they are a necessity in our stash. I have found it's always best to have them on hand rather than try to make one when you really need to. So this week we're adding Sympathy.
You all know I'm a CAS (clean and simple) gal at the best of times, but when it comes to Sympathy cards lots of white space is my 'go to'. ALWAYS! I used the timeless classic Stippled Blossoms, on Shimmery White c/s and stamped in Strawberry Slush (stamped off for the base) - I even fussy cut a layer and popped it up on dimensionals. The leaves are Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi. My sentiment is from the Clearly Besotted set Many Messages. Hope you like.
Your project doesn't have to be a card. It could be a gift bag, tag or box, or memory keeping in any form....so please do pop over to JAI and get some inspiration. We love having you join our weekly challenges, and it's always so fun to visit your blogs and share the love.
Well not a huge amount happening in my world this weekend. That would be because in just a few weeks we're off to Hawaii and New York for the month of May. Still an awful lot to do and organise before then of course so I'm not really feeling the excitement just yet. In fact I'm feeling slightly panicked just now. BUT New York fascinates me and I can't wait to get there. I'll fill you in some more next week. Bye for now.
