How is your Saturday going? Mine has been absolute bliss! After a breakfast date with our good friends Dave & Tania at a lovely restaurant overlooking the ocean at Kiama … I am now “home alone” … with several hours to myself. The cricket is on the TV in the background and … YAYAYAYA Australia is 9 / 472! The girls are out at a youth group car rally … and the boys have gone with Gav to the Motorcross in Sydney. Neither will be home until well after tea. It is rather quiet here … but I am enjoying a little “me time”! I am determined to get a few more Christmas cards done today … but first I wanted to play along with the Just Add Ink Challenge. This week is a sketch challenge … and the design team has posted some gorgeous samples! Click on the sketch to view these! Here is my entry …
I haven’t pulled out my FAV Vintage Vogue in a while … and it was so nice to play with it again. I honestly think that it is hard to do a BAD card with this set. It is one of those stamp sets that you just can’t go wrong with. I have used the “Rock N Roll” technique for the flowers … and (sorry) I forgot to add this to the “details” on my card recipe. But … I think most of you already know how to do this technique! For those who don’t: Ink up your stamp using the lighter colour ink … then roll the edges of the image “around” on the darker colour ink pad. Stamp. EASY! 😀 The bow is a “No Tie Brad Bow” and I used a Chocolate Chip Neutrals brad (flat top) and stuck a pearl on top with a mini glue dot … to go with the pearl accents on the flowers!
So … I need to do a bit of a clean up before I get into those Chrissy cards! But … I still have time to play some more! 😀 Happiness is … stamping!!! 😀 I am feeling a little lonely … but that is ok … I will cope! 😉 Perhaps I need a little blog love!!! I go away for a few days … and all my blog comments dry up!!! So … please stop for a moment … and say hi! It will feel like you are keeping me company! 😀 😉 Have a nice weekend, everyone! xxaxx
