Just Add Ink #502...Just Add a Sketch

Happy Friday ~

Over at Just Add Ink this week, we have a fun new sketch from, Tina. I think sketches are one of my favourite challenges....half the work is already done for us :)

I pulled out my Petal Pallette stamps & watercoloured with Blueberry Bushel & Smokey Slate. My accents & embellishments are silver - not sure if you can see properly in the photo as it has been bright & sunny here so quite difficult to capture without shadows - & the sentiment is heat embossed.

If you'd like to join the challenge fun pop over to JAI for some inspiration from the design team. Here is the sketch for you to use.

Another week of isolating & social distancing behind us. The ACT goes back to school next week so I'll be back to home schooling the twins. That proved interesting at the end of last term....fingers crossed for what's ahead. Meantime during the holidays my two have had more ipad time than usual, & we've been getting out for our daily walk. Fortunately the weather in Canberra has been really good, mostly sunny & mild so I've pottered in the garden a lot. Anything to keep busy & out of the fridge & pantry....a fair bit of baking has also been happening in our house. Not good for my waistline at all.

Hope you are keeping well. Thanks for stopping by today, & I hope to see your project over in the gallery.

Just Add Ink #500...Just Add a Die Cut Word - Blog Hop

Happy Easter long weekend ~

Welcome to Just Add Ink's 500th challenge! We've been offering challenges weekly for 10+ years now & I joined the design team just 6 months in at challenge #26. I've had a couple of breaks over the years....because,! I can't stay away for too long though because these gals are more family than friends to me.

Anyway the whole team decided it would be fun to mark the occasion with a blog hop. Yay! Hops are always fun. This week we're adding a Die Cut Word suggested by Jan.

I pulled out some long forgotten stamps - The Sweet Life by PTI - & wanted a bold colour on my all white base - Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry & Blackberry Bliss. I used gold foil for my sentiment (the remaining part of the sentiment 'YOU' is on the inside of the card). During these weeks/months of isolation I'm trying to send more my friends know I'm always thinking of them even if we can't catch up in person.

Here is the banner. It would be so good if we fill that gallery to the brim this week to mark Just Add Ink's special milestone. So head over to the blog & check out the details, create your own project &B link it up.

Next along the way is Kim with a fabulously happy card to share. Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely Easter, hope the bunny is good to you, & most of all take care & be safe.
