Just Add Ink colour challenge #117

Blossom Birthday
My oh my isn't amazing how sometimes things just work.  I had a look at this weeks JAI challenge and was a little skeptical.  Not quite sure of the colours that we had to use.  So any way went on my merry way and bang an idea came to me, so dropped everything and a way creating I went. When I see a colour combo challenge I always seem to overload with the colours, but this time I thought less would be best.

Colour Combo

Now we all know we are our worst critics and its not very often we WOW ourselves with our own work, but I must say I am very very pleased with how my card turned out this time.  So yes I did go WOW looking at the card finished.

I hope you like and its goes WOW for you too.  So don't forget to pop over to the Just Add Ink website and get some more WOW's from all the talented ladies.

This is my card.

May is for Mothers Day

 May is for Mum's
SUO Challenge #44

Well I have had time to put together another challenge card for the Stampin Up Only challenge website.  I have just encountered these bookmark cards and I am loving them.  Not only do I think they add just a little bit more to giving a card but what a great way to give that special person who also loves to read a gift.
This one I have made for my Mother-in-Law as I know she loves reading.

I have used Early Espresso cardstock with Old Olive and some retired Designer Series Paper.  The eyelet border punch was used on the front of the card along with the new release of our Framelits Dies - Labels Collections aren't these just fantastic. I used the Round Tab punch for the top of the bookmark added some Stampin Up Markers for the colouring in and old olive grosgrain ribbon.  The sentiment inside reads "Your in my thoughts, you're in my heart."  from the Word Play stamp set.

So thanks for stopping by to have a look and don't forget to pop over to the SUO Challenges website for more Mother's Day inspiration.

JAI#116 - Just Add...Mother

Oh my goodness it has definitely been a while since I have managed to enter a card in a competition.  But in saying that it doesn't mean I haven't been watching all the challenges that have been and gone.  Everyone never ceases to amaze me with their super talent.  When I popped over to Just Add Ink challenge site today, couldn't believe my luck the challenge is to Just Add Mother.  Well I was lucky as I have just organised my Mothers Day class for next week, so I thought I would enter my card this week.

The card I have made is a Detachable Bookmark Card and here it is.

The first picture is the front of the card and the second one is showing you the detachable bookmark.

I used the Everyday Enchantment designer series paper with Lucky Limeade and Pool Party cardstock.
