Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #29

This morning I have had a few hours to spare & decided to participate in Makeesha's Inkspiration challengeCindy Major is hosting the challenge this week whilst Makeesha & her family enjoy a holiday in beautiful Canada you have to check out the photos on her blog they are amazing.
Cindy has added a little twist to the challenge to use something from our stash that has been sitting unused for whatever reason. I have chosen to use a little asian girl stamp that I absolutely love but just don't get enough time to use, I have also used some gorgeous Japanese paper I've been hoarding along with some ribbon from before my time with Stampin Up. I have also used the trusting gold gel pen .

Secret Sister Cards I sent

Well now know my Secret Sister has received her final gift I can post some photos of what I sent. I have been holding back posting cards that were similiar as not to give away who I was. My first post is one of the first cards I sent Richelle & I thought that I may have given myself away as they were similar to what I made for an ESAD blog hop.

This next card is similar to the one I sent to Richelle, I obviously didn't photograph the original. Richelle's card was made with Pink Passion & Kaleidiscope DSP as Pink Pssion & Taken with Teal were listed as her favourite colours & I really struggled to find cards to make that I was happy with. I cased this card of Splitcoaststampers but now can't find the link to give credit.

Bye for now Hope to be back tomorrow with another post.

Just Add Ink Challenge #21 & Crazy 4 Challenge

Hi, I am back with another entry into the JAI challenge & also an entry into the Crazy 4 Challenges. After finishing the first card I needed to make a card for my great neices birthday & knowing she would love the Pony from the Pony party stamp set I then decided I would stick with the Sketch because the stamp was a good fit & chose the colours from the Crazy & Challenges clour challenge.

The colours I have used are Almost Amythest(but looks blue), Pink Pirrourette, & Certainly Celery. I love how it has turned out & am sure my neice will love it.

Just Add Ink 21#

Hi everyone,
I have a card to share that I made for the Just Add Ink #21 Challenge, it's the first time participating in this challenge. I have found challenges a good way to get the Mojo back.

The card I have made uses the Bloomin Beautiful Stamp set, I made the card using the layout & it just didn't look right so I flipped the layout on its side & am much happier with it now.

Happy Stamping

Emily's Clean & Simple Card

I am back with a card my daughter Emily made after discovering that she could make sunglasses out of the butterfly punch, she was playing around with scraps left over from the card I made earlier & when she came up with the idea & she is MEGA proud, not sure if they have been done before but that doesn't matter because I know she hasn't seen it done before. The black for the lense of the sunglasses is made using the small oval punch.

Emily has then made a card with the Sunglasses for the Clean & Simple Challenge

Please leave Emily a comment as I think her card is just Awesome.

Clean and Simple

I have a quick post of a card I have made for the Clean & Simple Challenge

This card even though it was a clean & simple card I struggled with only putting 2 objects within the cirle as I have always been told you should never have an even number of something,other than that I am happy with the outcome it certainly looks better in real life than in the photo.

Inkspiration Challenge #26

Well I said I would be back with another entry for the
Inkspiration challenge
& here I am (amazing I know).
So after seeing Makeesha's video tutorial on the cute card box , I knew I had to give it a go & it is just as easy as Makeesha makes it look. But of course a card box needs cards so I made 3 cordinating cards to go inside.

I chose the colours from the challenge Real Red , Kraft, Whisper White & Basic Gray
challenge colours & the Wild about you stamp set.

I am reasonbly happy with how it has turned out & will make the perfect gift for someone I know.

Let me know what you think,

Well it has been an extremely busy month. On top of convention ( which ws just fabulous), I have had numerous family members in hospital, My hubby's 50th Birthday & many other small things that have added to it being a very stressful month.

So enough about my hectic life I have decided to participate in Makeesh's Inkspiration challenge to revive som of my creative Mojo & I must say I love this colour combo & have actually made 2 entries.

My first one to share is a little Top Note handbag made (isn't it just so cute. I think we will be making one of theese at this weeks class
