Determined to meet a deadline!


Hi there!

I can’t believe that I am going to make a deadline for a challenge! Yes … I have been itching to do this one all week … and … I MADE IT! 😀 This is the latest Just Add Ink Challenge … a fabulous colour combo …

And … after seeing a pretty card on Kay’s blog … I was determined to use my Fast & Fabulous Stamp Set! I LOVE this set … and must try to remember how quickly you can put a card together using it.

I am kinda pleased with this card. Lots of vibrant colour … and a gorgeously simple layout! Sorry … my camera was playing up … this photo (above) is a little blurry! (Ooooh! That’s making my eyes go funny! I wonder what happened?????) I hope you can see how lovely it really is! So … the only thing I still have to do is remember to put the link on the JAI website! 😀 😉

Thanks so much to all my wonderful blog friends who left comments on my previous post! I am so touched … and your congratulations have warmed my heart! I appreciate all your suggestions for a name, too! So … keep ’em coming! 😀 It is so lovely to have so many special friends to share my joys & blessings with! Stampin’ Hugs xxaxx






  1. No wonder you love this – it really is soooooo pretty – reminds me of my nana’s garden – Ooooh how appropriate – LOL.
    BTW – I must have been visiting your blog while you were at mine- I went back and found your comment AFTER I found out your news!!!! How funny!
    Andrea adds: I think we have done that before, Debbie! 😀 And … I will add nana to the list! It’s kinda “cuddly” … isn’t it! Hugs xxaxx

    Wow! This card just showcases that SU!® left some good colours in with their renovation! You’ve made a stunning card!

    The truck arrived yesterday and started packing…. but they will not finish until Thursday…. I know… how did I manage to accumulate sooooooo much stuff! I begged them to leave my bed and computer till last…lol! Could live without the tele… but definitely need the computer!

    Take care and I’ll be back as soon as I can!

    Andrea adds: Soooooo totally get those priorities! Hope all goes smoothly. Hey … did you give me your address … and I just forgot??? 😉 Hugs xxaxx
