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!

  1. This is just beautiful Patrice. That paper is brilliant (should've got some really...) and teamed with those gorgeous yellow roses it looks fantastic. A coast cabin sounds like a wonderful idea. You sound just like me - enjoying the morning walk chatting to dogs! You also sound as if you understand your kids very well indeed!! Vicky x
