Just Add Ink #133 - Just Add Mustard and Metallics

Apologies for my late posting! I have just had one of those days (well two actually!) that were so crazy busy they have just got away from me.

But better late than never right?  This week's challenge over at Just Add Ink is to use Mustard and Metallics on your project.  Perfect timing with Father's Day just around the corner, these colours are perfect for masculine cards don't you think?

I made a bookmark with a matching card for my project this week. I have used silver metallic card stock but it is really hard to see the pretty shine of it in my pic.

Stamps: My Favorite Things
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! DSP by Bo Bunny, silver metallic cardstock from my stash.
Other: All dies by My Favorite things, Ink and brads are Stampin' Up!

Just Add Ink #132 - Sketch Challenge

So sorry I am late with my post this week! I forgot to do it before I went to bed last night and then spent all of today running my girls around to various social engagements ... since when do the kids have a more exciting active social life than I do?  Oh yeah that's right, for about the last 10 years!

Anyway, this week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun sketch challenge for you. Wanna see it?  Well here it is ...

And here is my card:

I made this card for my brother's partner who has been unwell lately, I hope it cheers her up!
