Just Add Ink #498....Just Add E

Happy Friday ~

How is everyone doing in isolation these days? I have to say that as much as I love my children, my goodness they are keeping me on my toes....the noise level is driving me around the bend. And it's only early days yet.....

It's new challenge time over at Just Add Ink today & Tina has asked us to 'Just Add E' to our projects this week. Very timely with Easter around the corner. A lovely friend of mine asked if I could make three Easter cards for her niece & nephews since she won't be able to visit them this year :(  I'm sure they're going to love receiving happy mail!

I kept the cards very CAS. Using a base of Whisper White c/s, my copics for colouring & a couple of retired Stampin' Up! sets I had some fun. You can't see the Champagne Shimmer Mist that I sprayed in my photos which is a shame (I took my pics when it was getting a bit late in the day & losing light).

If you find yourself with more time on your hands than usual head over to JAI & join the challenge fun. We'd love to have you!

Take care, be kind to yourselves & try to take pleasure in the little things. For me that will be extra crafting time, & hopefully finishing some of the many projects I've started over the years. Knitting, chrocheting, colouring, reading, organising....

Just Add Ink #496...Just Add Inspiration

Happy Fri-yay friends ~

It's new challenge day over at Just Add Ink & Lou has given us a beachy scene to be inspired by this week. I'll add the image at bottom for you.

Going through all my stamp sets & designer papers I was quite miffed not to have any water or beach images in my substantial stash. Hmmmmm so I decided to go with the colours of the Inspiration pic & 'sort of' re-create the scene. I found this dsp in the Floral Romance pack of papers, tore it up (eeeek I find that so hard to do) & added it to my Crumb Cake base layers. And of course the flowers are from the Tropical Chic set - love it - I used Crushed Curry & Peekaboo Peach inks!

I really need to work on my photography skills....but once again was rushed to get it done before losing light. That's only going to get worse going into winter......I really need to up my game.

Head over to JAI to check out all the details & join in the challenge fun. Here is the Inspiration pic for you:

Keeping it short & sweet as we had a death in the family yesterday & I'm quite distracted. Thanks for stopping by.
