Just Add Ink #555 - Just Add a Colour Combo

Woohoo, it's Friday ~

Welcome to the latest Just Add Ink colour combo challenge, suggested by Rachael.

I finally cracked open my Prettiest Birthday this image. Coloured with Magenta Madness they almost look like lollies good enough to eat. I'm looking forward to colouring it in several shades but for this challenge I think all the pink just pops!

There is plenty of shimmery sparkle on this card too...which I never seem to be able to capture, sigh.

Come join the challenge using these gorgeous colours, pop over to JAI for some inspiration & all the details. Here is the banner for you.

I spent all of yesterday at the hospital with my big boy - previously known as Gorgeous Kid (he's a man now so it kind of doesn't fit). He had all four wisdom teeth removed under a GA. Defence has approved him a week of leave to be at home for his recovery. It's nice being able to look after him...even if he does look like Dracula lol.

And our landscaping seems never ending. Can't wait until I can step outside & not end up dusty & dirty. There are no pavers or grass or greenery of any kind out there at the moment. Sooooo looking forward to seeing the finished product! 

Enjoy your weekend!

Just Add Ink #553...Just Add a Sketch

Hello & happy Friday ~ 

It's the start of a brand new challenge week over at Just Add Ink. Kelly has designed the sketch for us to use. 

I've gone completely out of my comfort zone & cracked into the Sweet Ice Cream suite here, using some of the new In Colours. I think I love them all. Miss 9 always has parties to attend so this card will be used in no time, I'm sure.

Up close it's all sparkly with Shimmer Paint.

If you'd like to join the challenge fun head over to JAI to check out the details & get some inspiration. Here is the banner for you.

No interesting news from me this fortnight....our huge landscaping job (have I even mentioned that yet?) is still in progress & my entire back yard is a bomb site - not helped by three days of rain this week. It's nearing the end they tell me so hopefully I can get to the fun part of planting soon. We're also incorporating a fire pit & a large urn with flowing water. Hubby has been taking time lapse video for the 6-7 weeks that the workers have been here so once that's all put together I can share a start to finish.

It's Mother's Day here in Australia on Sunday. I found a little notation in our family calendar that we're going out for brunch. I've no idea where but I'm excited to know Gorgeous Kid will be hanging with us. I don't see him nearly often enough now that he's all grown up & away from home.

Hope all is well in your world. Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful weekend! Happy Mother's Day to those of you celebrating.
