Just Add Ink #483...Just Choose Two

Happy Friday ~

It's an extra special weekend for me as Gorgeous Kid has come home for a couple of days! Yay!

Short & sweet post due to above :)

The new Just Add Ink challenge has been set by Di this week & she's asking us to Choose Two - Stars, Spots or Sparkle.

I had to photograph at night so you can't see all the Champagne Shimmer Mist sprayed liberally on my card. I love this new Forever Blossoms set I won at On Stage in Sydney last weekend. I haven't got the matching dies yet so coloured straight to my card front & fussy cut a little flower to pop up for added interest. I used Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Blends.

If you'd like to join the fun this week, pop over to the blog & check out the design team inspiration. Here is the banner for you:

I had an absolutely fantastic long weekend in Sydney last week rooming with some of my favourite people. Here is the Sydney contingent of Just Add Ink team members, minus Tina because we couldn't find her for the pic. We really needed her there though because she was wearing a gorgeous emerald green top & it would have worked so well in our photo.

And our Perth lovelies (I should have shared some of their 'hamming it up' pics lol).

We really missed Jan, however, she's been a busy bee of late & couldn't join us - unfortunately.

Righto, off to enjoy an extra special weekend with my big boy. Thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #482 - Just Add a Sketch

Woohoo, it's Friday ~

I'm here to share my card for the new Just Add Ink sketch challenge that Jackie gave us to play with this fortnight. Yep you read that right. This challenge is open for two weeks, until 20 November, as many of the design team will be in Sydney next weekend for the Stampin' Up! OnStage event.

SU! events are so much fun.... new goodies to see & touch, meeting up with old & new friends.... my favourite part is spending real (not computer or phone) time with my JAI buddies. We have A LOT of fun together laughing & chatting until the wee hours, shopping, eating out.... it's the highlight of OnStage for me! This year we're staying an extra couple of days because it's always so rushed. Cannot wait!

I made a very pink card this week because my daughter is off to a birthday party on Sunday & this is perfect for her little friend. Using the Dino Roar suite & coordinating c/s colours (Flirty Flamingo & Lovely Lipstick) I created a little tri fold using some excellent instructions from Sharon Burkert, here.

Here is a little video to show the sparkle & how the card opens. Because, well.... I'm not a very good photographer. Thanks for the tip, Kelly.

Pop over to JAI & check out what the rest of the design team have created. Lots of loveliness to get you inspired. Here is the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by. See you in two weeks!

Just Add Ink #481 - Just Add Inspiration

Happy Fri-yay ~

I came back with another card to share :)

For this week's new Just Add Ink challenge, Nikki, gave us an Inspiration pic. I chose to ink up the new Stampin' Up! Christmas Rose set & colour it with my Zig Markers. They came up a little more vibrant than I was aiming for, & coupled with not photographing well my card really isn't showing its true colours here.

I've heat embossed the image on Shimmery White c/s - I find embossing really helps when colouring with water. The Gold Shimmer Ribbon & Glitter Enamel Dots are part of the brand new Christmastime is Here Suite available to customers today! Wait until you see the full Suite....gorgeous Designer Papers, & Dies to match both the Stamps & the Papers, plus lots more!

Here is the Inspiration pic & if you click over to JAI you'll see what the rest of the Design Team have put together to whet your appetite & hopefully have you joining in on the challenge fun.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by. I'll pop back in a few days & share the twins Halloween outfits & haul :)
