Just Add Ink #110 - Sketch Challenge

Surely another week couldn't have whizzed by already? As hard as that is to believe it appears to be true because it's challenge time again over at Just Add Ink.

This week we have a sketch challenge for you. If you would like to play along (and we hope you do!) just make a card/project using this sketch and go over to our challenge blog to enter.

And here is the card I made this week. The colour looks a little off in the pic, but it is actually Pink Pirouette.

I never thought I would have a need for the adoption sentiment I had sitting in my stash, but my sister-in-law and brother-in-law recently adopted a gorgeous little girl in Cambodia so I was very excited to be able to ink this one up!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White (SU!), DSP from Twitterpated by SU!
Other: Stitching, fence punch, boho blossoms flower punch.

If only I really were a princess...

But I guess I will have to settle for being awarded one of the Perfect Princesses over at Freshly Made Sketches this week. This lovely award was for THIS card. Thank you ladies! Now if only I could convince the rest of my family to start treating me like a princess! LOL

A quick card share

I hope that you are all having a great weekend! I don't know where mine has gone, it seems to have whizzed by and I haven't had much time at all around the house. I did get a chance to play last night and got one simple card made. Unfortunately I couldn't seem to get a good photo so it looks a little washed out but I thought I would share it anyway.

Stamps: All PTI
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink, White
Ink: Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso
Other: Dies by PTI, stitching, pretty in pink satin ribbon, Pearl embellishments

Now I am off to clean up my craft room, and do some re-organising in there. Wish me luck! lol

Have a great week :)
