Just Add Ink #259 - Just Add Sequins

Thank goodness it's Friday ~

I'm so looking forward to some down time this weekend.  It's been one of those weeks.  Never enough hours in the day and always something on my 'to do' list.  I keep carrying things over and it's not at all satisfying when I can't put a big line through something I'd like to have achieved.  Am I the only one who feels like this?  Please tell me I'm not!

Our new challenge over at Just Add Ink this week is to add sequins.  Yay for a bit (or a lot) of bling and fun.  My card this week was really hard to photograph, perhaps because Canberra has had some really dull weather, and also because of the window sheet on my shaker card.


I've created a girly pink card using the On Film Framelits, some window sheet (which I stamped on using StazOn) and a bunch of sweet sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  I rock-n-rolled my stamps with Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry inks.

There are so many things you can do with sequins, so why not join the challenge fun over at JAI this week?  If you're stuck for ideas the design team has a bunch for your inspiration.  If you fancy making a shaker card, go to google and it'll come up with a ton of tutorials to help you along.  Or feel free to contact me and I'm happy to help!

Gorgeous Kid is off at a sleepover tonight, and then off to a movie marathon with a bunch of mates Saturday night. I'm using the time as catch up.  So much to do before Convention - eeek less than two weeks until I get to see everyone and have some crafty fun with them all.  Just. Can't. Wait!

  7. Loving all this pink goodness and the corner bunch of flowers is gorgeous!! No, your definitely not the only one who hates not crossing things off the list. I've finally made piece with school holidays knowing that I won't get many jobs done or hardly any housework. I feel better about it now but that first week back at school I'm flat out catching up with myself. Hope you get a chance to put your feet up this weekend!!
