Just Add Ink #281 - Just Add a Colour Combo

Hello and happy Friday ~

Before I get to my card I want to wish my beautiful BFF, Trish a super wonderful happy birthday today! I hope you and your gorgeous little guy have some fun plans today.  Thinking of you and missing you loads!  Totally wish I was there.

There's a new challenge over at Just Add Ink!   Di wants us to choose our favourite three colours. Fun huh!  I went with Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Smoky Slate because they are my faves for this week. Lol, I know you all understand - favourites change all the time!

I used the PTI Linen Impression Plate on my mat layer here, and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and heat embossed with Smoky Slate e/p (retired).  There is lots of shimmer on this card irl but the photo hasn't picked it up :(

Yet again I've been very short on time for one reason or another.  I even missed blogging my 'glimmer' card last week.  Shame on me.  Suffice to say it was pretty, pink and perfect for BFF's birthday!  I arrived home earlier this week from five fun days in Queensland with said BFF and her beautiful family.  The weather was kind and not too hot.  We did a bit of shopping, visited the Eat Street Markets - AWESOME - stopped in at a real life craft store (of which we don't really have in Canberra nowadays) and did lots of lazing around chatting (and eating).  The highlight of course was her baby boy's Baptism.  I am now officially his Godmother.  So. Very. Proud!

Please make sure you head over to JAI and see what the lovely ladies have created for your inspiration this week. Hope you find time to join this fun challenge with us.  Enjoy your weekend! I'm planning on catching up around here, making a few cards and sharing some of the pics I've been promising for weeks now.
