Signing off with a challenge - Just Add Ink #48!

Well peeps (always wanted to say that, it sounds so cute when my blogging friend Gretchen says it!) lol I am out of here at five thirty tomorrow morning, heading to the East coast for Christmas and New Year. Things have been crazy busy here getting ready for our holiday, working and also celebrating our youngest daughters graduation from primary school. But before I go, I just thought I would post one last card which is for this weeks Sketch Challenge over at Just Add Ink.

Please indulge me for a moment

... while I share a few pics of my gorgeous daughter(s).

My youngest one, who is unbelievably going into HIGH SCHOOL next year (how old do I feel?) attended her dinner dance tonight. I can't believe how grown up she looked ... sniff sniff.

Can someone please slow the world down, it is going way too fast for me!

Just Add Ink #47 - Colour Combo

Is it just me or are the weeks going faster and faster the closer we get to Christmas? I just don't seem to have had a spare 5 minutes to myself lately and my to-do list keeps getting longer rather than short!

The only good thing about it being the end of another week, is that it is challenge time again over at Just Add Ink. And this week it is a nice vibrant colour challenge for you!
And here is my card. I made this for my sweet nephew for his recent 6th birthday.
Cardstock: Basic grey, tempting turquoise, daffodil delight
Ink: Basic grey, riding hood red
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Other: felt, cloud die by PTI, border template by Tim Holtz

JAI46 - Just Add Critters!

Don't you just love that word 'critters'? Well this week over at Just Add Ink the theme was to use a critter of any kind on your project. Unfortunatley I am VERY late with my submission as it was due to be up on the JAI site with all of the other DT projects but life has just been crazy busy lately and I have had absolutely no time to craft at all :( So my apologies!

But better late than never right? Here is my card for this week's challenge. And it's hard to see in the pic by my water and little whale spout are actually quite sparkley thanks to the addition of dazzling diamonds :) The colour is also a bit off, the colouring of the whale is a perfect match to the bermuda bay but has come out a little more 'blue' in the photo.

Stamps: Pun Fun
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay DSP
Ink: basic black
Other: Paper piercer, stitching, prismacolour pencils, dazzling diamonds, night of navy satin ribbon, pewter hodgepodge.

Just Add Ink Swap Hop


Recently all of the Design Team at Just Add Ink participated in a card swap. So we thought it would be fun to do our own little blog hop so that you could check out all of the cards that were made.

There are 14 stops on the blog hop, but don't worry if you are starting here because you can just continue around in a full circle so you won't miss out on anyone's blog! All you have to do is click the Swap Hop Button at the bottom of my post and you will continue onto the next stop which is Patrice's blog.

And here is the card that I made for the swap (if you are a regular visitor to my blog it may look familiar to you).
Stamps: Take a Sip
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Love Letters DSP
Ink: basic black, riding hood red
Other: stitching, prismacolour pencils, big shot embossing folder, modern label punch, black brads, border punch
