Just Add Ink #381 - Just Choose Two

Happy Friday friends ~

We've survived week one back at school - yay us! The nice weather is here, & the garden is colourful once again. I really love this time of year. Hard to believe Christmas isn't too far away either....eeeek I have another few birthdays to get through before I can even think of that!

We have a Choose Two - Embossing Paste or Colouring or Sequins challenge from Jan kicking off at Just Add Ink today. As my new Stampin' Blends arrived earlier this week I couldn't resist having a quick play. Out came my Birthday Bloom favourite again....I've used Pink Pirouette & Old Olive here, with a little touch of Cherry Cobbler in the centre. What you can't see is all the shimmer on this card, unfortunately.

I really enjoy using the Embossing Paste, & if you haven't tried it yet I urge you to get yourself a pot. So. Much. Fun!

We'd love you to join the challenge fun with us so pop over to the JAI blog, grab yourself some inspiration & get busy. We really do enjoy popping past your blogs to see what you've created, & leave you some comment love.

Now that the warmer weather is here our two youngest are doing Little Athletic's each Saturday morning again, swimming lessons have resumed & life gets that much busier for this taxi mum.

Yesterday I had my hair cut & coloured, & today I'm lunching with a friend to celebrate her birthday. This evening is my semi regular dinner with the girls (four of us have been catching up every six weeks or so for too many years to remember) & we always have so much to talk, laugh & commiserate about. Our dinners don't roll around nearly as often as we'd all like.

I hope the start of your weekend is as good as mine.
