Just Add Ink #543....Just Add a Sketch

 It's Friday ~

Kelly has given us a fun sketch challenge to work with this week over at Just Add Ink. I'm totally loving on the True Love designer papers. So much so, that I need to order a second packet already!

Here I've coloured the florals softly with my copic markers & popped up on dimensionals, adding a little copper thread underneath for interest. And once again, Label Me Bold stamp set to the rescue. I love these small sentiments as they just fit in anywhere.

Why don't you join the challenge fun with us? Pop over to JAI for some gorgeous inspiration, & get busy with your own version of this awesome sketch.

The twins had a birthday this week! They're getting old enough now that they like to celebrate separately. So little Miss had a sleepover pizza party with the girls last weekend & they spent most of it in the pool thanks to lovely weather! This weekend Master is taking a friend to the coast, while his sister stays in Canberra. He'll have his own pizza party & beach fun. Let's hope I can transport his cake in one piece!

Here is her cake. My girlfriend makes amazing cakes, & a really good size so you're not eating it for days on end. We all love her oreo balls - which she has decorated in Miss' favourite colour purple. If you're local & want one of these for yourself leave me a comment & I'll happily pass on contact details.

Thanks for popping by today. Have a fabulous weekend!

Just Add Ink #541...Just Add a Blended Background

 Happy Friday ~

Over at Just Add Ink this week, Nikki has set a pretty cool challenge to add a blended background to our projects. Back story .... I made a card a couple of weeks ago that I wasn't entirely sure of. So it's been sitting on my desk & I've been looking at it & looking at it trying to decide if I like it or not. Late last night I decided to whip up something different .... & because it was late my fallback was the gorgeous SAB paper  Oh So Ombre'. Bit of a cheat move but it is beautiful paper.

I also coloured some of my other favourite paper - True Love - & fussy cut it, popping it up on dimensionals. Label Me Bold seems to be my go to for quick & easy sentiments these days too.

When uploading my card I realised I must like this colour combo because I found a card I'd made for a previous challenge using the same colours. Hmmmm.

If you fancy joining us this week, pop over to JAI & check out some inspiration from the design team & the challenge guidelines. 

News for me this fortnight is that we bought a coast cabin! Exciting. The beach is beautiful, with gentle waves (thinking we may invest in a kayak too) & dog friendly. I'm going to love morning walks & chatting to everyone else's doggos on the weekends & holidays that we visit. The twins are beyond thrilled at the prospect of meeting new friends & being 'free' to explore their new area. Gorgeous Kid is looking forward to going down with his mates when the folks aren't there!

I've spent some of this week out purchasing lots of new items to furnish it....I really thought that would be more fun that it actually was!

Have a super weekend, whatever you get up to!
