Just Add Ink #322 - Just Add a Colour Combo

Happy Friday lovelies ~

This post is coming to you live from my brand new Apple iMac!  Eeeeek still very much learning but so far loving it. I have a beautiful big 21" screen with fabulous clarity - hehe no need to wear my glasses!

I'm here to share a sweet birthday card today using the new challenge colour combo at Just Add Ink. Rochelle gave us these colours - Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip.

In my effort to use the new In Colours more I chose a base of Sweet Sugarplum and the matching designer paper - I do love dots and spots.  I've been having a bit of fun with the new Sweet Cupcake stamp set as well.  I built my icing up using a Vanilla ink (non SU), Blushing Bride and Sweet Sugarplum.  It also got nicely 'winked' for some sparkle - not that you can see it here at all.  Both the cupcake panel (the icing too) and the sentiment are popped up on dimensionals.

The design team have come up with some great projects using this colour combo so head over to JAI and check them out.  We'd love you to join the challenge fun and show us your creations as well.

News for us this week has been a little on the sad side....we lost a friend following a very short and aggressive cancer.  Very sad for the young family he leaves behind.  Gorgeous Kid is totally looking forward to seeing his footy team play here in Canberra this weekend (he's a Richmond Tigers fan). The twins had their very first preschool excursion this week - the bus wash.  Oh my goodness talk about noisy! Three classes of very excited young children being encouraged to tell the driver which way to drive the bus.  Eeeeek.

I wish I could say I'd been crafting up a storm, however, I'm still not feeling super creative and each time I sit at my craft desk is a bit of a struggle.  Sad as that is.  Hope to get back to normal sometime very soon!  At least migrating all my documents and photos over to the new computer is keeping me busy.  I have a very steep learning curve ahead of me too.  Until next time.....have an awesome weekend, and thanks for stopping by my little part of blogland.
