Hello and a very happy Friday to you! This week has really flown. The Winter bugs are definitely in full flight and that has certainly put a bit of a damper on things but hopefully over the worst of it now. Just in time to enjoy a little ease from the chilly temperatures.
And also just in time for your weekend, we have a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week, Rochelle has suggested beautiful colours for us all to use in our projects. Our lovely Team have put up fabulous cards to inspire you so I do hope you can pop on over and take a look.
Here are the colours:
And here is my card:
Truth be told, I was a bit scared by these colours at first - I hadn't yet tried using the new Sweet Sugarplum ....but then I fell in love with the new Thoughtful Branches stamp set and of course it's perfect colours for a cherry tree in blossom isn't? It was such fun to see that it goes so well with Chocolate Chip and I might just have to show this neglected colour some more love!!
There is a little gold in the embossing of the sentiments and a scattering of sentiments - hopefully it is ok as a neutral :-)
The "Spring "is the new Labeller Alphabet - stamped onto Vanilla card and then cut out and pieced together. Today is the 29th of July - so only 2 days and one month to go till Spring is here - yay!!
We really have had a true "Winter" this year - cold, wet and blustery! Some in the Northern Hemisphere might say that without snow we have gotten off lightly - that's true! It is the wind that has made it seem tough - as a Radio announcer in (Wellington) NZ used to say: "it's a lazy wind - it goes straight through you!"
This card is off to NZ - to a lovely friend in hospital who is having a harder time than expected post surgery (and she's a purple fan) so hopefully this will help cheer her a little too :-)
