Just Add Ink #316 - Just Add Stripes

Happy Freezing Friday morning ~

Yes Jack Frost has been a regular visitor of late....but the days are blue skies and sunshine so I can't really complain.  You can see a little of said sky in the background of my card below.  I didn't have time to fuss about with finding a spot indoors where I was going to fight with brightness, and/or shadows.
Can you tell I've had no creativity in me since returning from holidays?  It's been a few weeks between posts - sorry!  Despite all the new stamps, papers, punches and pretty things I've been playing with I'm still feeling a lot rusty.

I have managed to put a little something together for the new Just Add Ink challenge kicking off today.  I set the challenge this week and I want you to add stripes to your projects.  How fun!

I used the super sweet, and very versatile new stamp set Foxy Friends along with the coordinating designer paper - all from the brand spanking new catalogue.  Paper and ink are Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate respectively.  A few little silver sequins and thread and I called it done.  Not thrilled with the finished product but hey, I have to submit something to a challenge I set lol.

I can't wait to see all the goodness you come up with.  The design team have created some really gorgeous cards this week!  Be sure to head over to JAI to check them out.

No time this morning to tell you all about my US holiday, however, I WILL be back soon to share some stories and piccies.  Let me tell you it was an AWESOME holiday!  Busy weekend ahead, but the highlight is my cousin (and her family) arriving from New Zealand to stay with us for a few days. So looking forward to that.

Thanks, as always for stopping by today.  Enjoy your weekend!
