Just Add Ink #308 - Just Add M

Good morning ~

Well I just have to tell you that On Stage last weekend was fabulous.  I had so much fun, and thoroughly enjoyed the extremely long day that it was.  We saw soooo many gorgeous new products, got to play with fun new toys, received loads of was an awesome time!  I can't wait to do it all again for On Stage Live in Brisbane come November.  The highlight was catching up with my JAI girlfriends, and other blog friends from across Australia.

Tina has given us an M word challenge over at Just Add Ink this week.  That means you can create anything that begins with an M - could be your chosen colours, a theme, or even a technique such as're only limited by your imagination.  I no longer have a need to make Mother's Day cards, unfortunately.  However, I do have friends that need them for their that's what I chose as my M card for this week.

I created an easel card using the Love Blossoms designer papers.  So sweet.

Goodness knows what was going on with my editing as both pics are quite different colours.  Lol. Sorry 'bout that.  If you'd like to know my measurements and how I created this card leave a comment, or shoot me an email (address over on r/h sidebar) and I'll be happy to share.

If you need an excuse to get your craft on this weekend then head over to JAI and check out the challenge details. We love to see all your entries.

So the countdown is on....less than two weeks until my much anticipated holiday.  We're staying in a fabulous apartment whilst in NYC.  It's going to be perfect for relaxing after our crazy sightseeing days and nights.  And that's exactly why we didn't go with a hotel!  We want the real experience.  A couple of things on our itinerary, pre booked are - a walk up to the crown of Liberty, being part of the live audience at the Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show, and a Burlesque broadway show. I have a lot of foodie places to visit also, Levain Bakery for the best 'cookie' in New York, Shake Shack for the best burger (and because I always see it in movies hehe) list goes on.  I swear I'm going to weigh 10 kilo heavier when I get home.  More next week :o)


  1. Beautiful P! Your paper and product choice are perfect for a very elegant Mothers day card. xx
    Now go unpack half that case..:0)

  2. A gorgeous easel card, Patrice. Perfect for Mother's Day. Sounds like you had a fabulous time at On Stage. I'm kicking myself I didnt go. Rochelle xo

  3. I love how you brought hints of the red up into the top panel P it has real impact against the neutral background. The pearls make a great stopper for the easel too love the hint of shine there! You'll be walking all those calories off P so I wouldn't worry about it at all - just enjoy!

  4. So pretty P! I too love your colour choices and DSP to suit your lovely stamped heart and flower. The side easel resting against your 3 pearls is a stunning effect too! So glad you enjoyed Onstage - and sounds like you're going to have an awesome time away too!! xx
