Just Add Ink #318 - Just Add S

Hello, and happy Friday ~

There's a new challenge up over at Just Add Ink.  This week we're adding 'S' to our projects - so you're only limited by your imagination.  You could add spots, or stripes, or silver, or any number of S word stuff :o)

I have a super CAS (clean and simple) one layer card to share with you today.  This is the type of card that we don't usually feel like making when we actually need them so it's always good to have a few on hand. I like to keep my sympathy cards clean, with lots of white space.  It's not the occasion for fussing, and I've always been one for less is more.

I used some Clearly Besotted stamps, and inked them onto Shimmery White c/s - can you see the sparkle in the close up below?  I've used Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron and my card base uses the Thick Whisper White c/s - love that stuff!

What do you think?  Clean?  Simple?  If you'd like to join our challenge this week, hop over to JAI and check out the design team inspiration, have a quick scan of the rules and get busy in your craft space.  Don't forget to link up once your project is complete.  We really love looking at all your gorgeous creations.

This week Gorgeous Kid has been doing work experience at his favourite music store here in Canberra.  I think the 9 to 5 is knocking him around a little, but he's really enjoying hanging with the staff and being treated like a grown up.  They seem to be loving him too.  Grateful mum here!  Did I mention he's learning to drive as well?  Yep got his L plates a month ago and we've been taking him out twice a week for lessons.  So far he's doing really well.  He sure is growing up fast all of a sudden.

The twins are back to good health this week - thankfully!  All three start their school holidays next week.  Bring on the non routine.....I love it, for about two weeks.  Lol.

Hugely busy weekend for us - we have friends staying from interstate, a dinner, a 21st celebration - lunch and evening drinks, some fundraising to be done for the twins preschool and of course Australia has an election!  It's compulsory to vote here.  Not quite sure how it's all going to fit in but so long as things go according to MY plan and there are no hiccups I'm hopeful of making it all happen.  We shall see.

Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by today.

  1. Beautiful card and just perfect for a sympathy card.

  2. I think this is perfect P. The tiny details on the flower and foliage and sparkle are all you need to make this special. Good luck surviving the weekend - I'm exhausted just reading about all you have on! xxx

  3. This is such an elegant Sympathy card P! I love the pop of colour of your gorgeous red bloom and the leaf sprays against the white background. Hope the weekend and school holidays are fun and so lovely that GK is enjoying work experience at the record store - such a cool place to be too! xx

  4. This is so simply elegant P. I love the crisp white and simple sentiment...beautiful. Xx
