Just Add Ink #547...Inspiration

Happy Friday ~

It's new challenge time at Just Add Ink. Kim has given us an adorable Easter wreath inspiration image to work with this week. I adore pink so naturally that was the direction I took....& of course a little wreath. I went with the Easter theme by adding a sweet little copic coloured bun.

I made this card into a gift card/cash holder by adding a little pocket using designer paper inside. Apologies for dull pics. We've had crazy rain lately & not a lot of natural light. You can't even see the sparkle all over this :(

If you'd like to join us pop over to JAI & get all the details. Here is the banner for you.

We've got a big landscaping job going on at home. Thanks to the recent rain our dates have been pushed out but finally they got started yesterday! I'm going to miss some of the greenery we have currently but I do look forward to our new design....just wish it didn't take so many years for things to grow big again. I'm most looking forward to the new smart wifi watering system - it knows when it's raining & doesn't double water & I can control it from anywhere. Being a bit tech challenged I may or may not be in charge of it. Lol!

Have a wonderful Easter, however you celebrate it. My next project will come to you from Fraser Island. We're spending the school holidays up there enjoying the warmer weather & beaches.

Just Add Ink #545....Just Add a Colour Combo

Helloooo ~

Shades of green....that's what Lou has us doing for this week's brand new Just Add Ink colour challenge. There are so many gorgeous greens in the Stampin' Up! colour families....where to start....I chose the beautiful Soft Sea Foam with a touch of Pear Pizzazz ribbon today.

I love the subtle Tasteful Textile embossing folder, which I've layered on Gold Foil here. And for the third challenge running I've used the gorgeous florals from the True Love designer paper. I fussy cut two layers & popped just the flowers up on dimensionals, using Wink of Stella all over the flowers for some shimmery sheen. Honestly this card looks a whole ton better in real life!

If you have a favourite (or more) shade of green, then pop over to JAI & join in the challenge fun with us.

Not a lot of news this week. We had coast fun last weekend, which included a public holiday - always a bonus! We are making so many lovely new friends down there. The kids love the freedom of riding their bikes everywhere & having several visits a day to the beach. I'm enjoying the food options way too much....I'm finding all the local tucked away cafes. Good but not so good if you know what I mean :) This weekend I need to stay in Canberra & tend the garden.
