It's been a big and exciting week in our house, and many others across the country I'm sure. Our summer school holidays came to an end. The twins started kindy, in separate classes, so there was a little apprehension from one but the other was very keen to be doing her own thing. This is the first time they've really been separated and I can happily report that five days in they are doing great.
Gorgeous Kid started college and seems to be loving it so far. I think the most attractive thing for him is his timetable - he gets to start later and finish earlier several days a week. He's also not restricted to school grounds and heads over to the local shops with friends during the lunch period. Lucky he earns his own money!
It's time to share a new Just Add Ink sketch challenge with you. Narelle created this one for us and I love it. I've used my much loved Treat Bag Thinlits to make a little birthday card that I think is suitable for a male - I find I need these on hand as Gorgeous Kid gives me next to no notice when he needs them for his mates.
Very CAS, just the way I like it
Pull up the insert and there is plenty of space to write a message
Here's another card using the same sketch. This was my first 'cut' into the delicious Cool Treats designer paper. My photo editing has washed it out a little - but how good do all those ice creams and popsicles look?! I love the colours in this suite.
I used the Stitched Framelit dies, silver foil, glimmer paper and some random enamel dots on both cards. The c/s and dsp is Watermelon Wonder. Here is the sketch if you'd like to join the challenge fun this week. Pop over to JAI and check out the awesome inspiration from the design team, their projects are sure to get you started.
My weekend is shaping up to be nice and quiet. The rest of the family are going camping (not my thing, particularly in this extremely hot weather with no aircon), so I get to do whatever I like - woohoo. Hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. Thanks for stopping by today.
