Just Add...Blue JAI#39 + optional add-on


Another special week ... Over at Just Add Ink we are recognising Anxiety and Depression Awareness month. Find out more at the fabulous Beyond Blue site.

My card base is the gorgeous new Marina Mist, the scallop layers Baja Breeze and an assortment of both inks using the I {heart} Hearts stamp set. I finished off with a little Marina Mist Satin ribbon - I love love love the Satin ribbons. If you haven't already purchased any go out and get yourself some, it is truly divine!

Now there is an optional add-on challenge this week, and that is to do something nice for someone for no reason - a Random Act of Kindness (RAK). My card was given to a very deserving friend yesterday. She is struggling with her own anxieties and depression more than usual at the moment and to know she has friends and support is very important!

Head over to JAI and check out the other gorgeous DT projects.

Hope you've all had a lovely week and have some fun and exciting plans for the weekend! Take care.


  1. I'm loving Marina Mist too!! Those hearts are so cute - I think I might have to get that set.

  2. This is gorgeous! I love how you used two different sentiments together - works perfectly. Yes, that satin ribbon is stunning, isn't it?

  3. Hey there P!

    This card is so lovely and I can only imagine how much your friend appreciated it! I loved the challenge this week and couldn't wait to make a card this morning!

    RAK's are beautiful, but so are words, so I just want to say that I think you are the most beautiful kind hearted person and a fantastic mother, and I'm so glad we're friends!:)



  4. I agree the satin ribbon is just gorgeous and those hearts just go so well with the theme for this challenge.

  5. I've been resisting buying the Hearts but your card makes it more difficult to give into temptation!!! Beautiful!

  6. Love the strip with the vintage wallpaper and the cute hearts.

  7. So beautiful Patrice, I love the layered hearts! Love Keesh x

  8. Lovely card, and those hearts are just gorgeous.

  9. That poor Marina Mist is getting a work out with us all isnt it? LOL

    I love your card, the hearts look fab in blue. Well done. :)

  10. Stunning card Patrice!

    I thought I could live without Marina Mist...but now I'm not so sure ;-). It is a really beautiful shade.

    Best wishes,

  11. LOVE those hearts in blues - what a great idea. Your card is beautiful, lovey :) The only problem with the satin ribbon is having to decide which colours to buy, because they are ALL divine!!
