Just Add Ink #325 - Just Add a Sketch

Whoop whoop it's Friday ~

I'm doing the happy dance.  Had the greys (hair) taken care of last night, heading out to double birthday dinner celebrations with lovely friends tonight, last footy game tomorrow and Gorgeous Kid's birthday (16 can you believe it? where did that time go?) on Sunday so a little more celebrating.... I've got a pretty good weekend lined up.

Today I'm here to share a simple card I've made for the new Just Add Ink sketch challenge, from Tina.  I'll add the sketch at bottom for you.  I've used a new set called Seasonal Bells, from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue.  Once again quite a difficult card to photograph - it's all shimmery and pretty irl.

I heat embossed the bells in silver and added the adorable little bells, also new!  My mat layer and swirl (from Cupcake Cutouts Framelits) uses the lovely red foil we had last Christmas - I always keep a stash of the good stuff.

If you'd like to join the challenge fun pop over to JAI and grab yourself some inspiration.  The design team have a lovely variety of cards using the sketch.  You're sure to want to get inky!

Short and sweet from me today.  But guess what?  I've finally started sorting the New York piccies. It took me some time to actually download...well truthfully Brian did that, not me.  But I now have them on my computer too.  Slowly coming along with learning to navigate the iMac as well.  I'll have something for you next week for sure.  Until then....

.....enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by today.
