Just Add Ink 136 - Kids!

Sorry ladies I thought I'd scheduled this post for this morning but obviously I didn't!!

It's FRIDAY!! Woohoo!

And Friday means a new challenge at Just Add Ink.
The challenge this week is just add Kids!  How much fun are kids cards to make? I know I love to use brighter colours and enjoy being a bit more playful :)

I really wanted to use the 'I dig you' stamp set but all the vehicles were facing the same way and I needed one to face the other way.  So I decided to stamp them all on vellum and then flip one the other way!

(sorry about this picture it's a bit wonky!) 

I've used
Paper - Basic Grey, Whisper White and Vellum
Ink - Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Basic Black
Stamp Set - I dig you
Other: Twine

You should see the fun kiddies cards that the other Design Team members have created - pop over check them out and don't forget to show us your take on the kid theme!!

Just Add Polka Dots!!!!!!!

What a fantastic challenge this week at Just Add Ink - just add Polka Dots!

When ever I'm unsure about what DSP to use I always turn to polka dots. They suit any type of card whether it be a masculine or feminine card.

This card was fairly quick to make and it was a great way to use up some smaller pieces of card stock and dsp that I had.

The rhinestones added a special little sparkle that the card needed!

I've got a busy weekend ahead with interstate guests and birthday celebrations for my other half so I doubt I'll have any time for crafting!  However I hope you'll get some time to check out the inspiration from the Design Team members over at JAI and enter in your Polka Dot creation.

Happy Friday

Dinner en Blanc

Tonight I'm off to something very exciting here in Brisbane....... Dinner en Blanc! 

What is Dinner en Blanc??
Thousands of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space (which is secret until the last minute).
It was first launched in Paris 20 years ago and tonight will be the first one here in Australia!

So I've been out shopping to find all my white goodies - who knew it was so hard to find a nice pair of white pants?!

I'll pop back soon with some pictures from the night!!
I'm very excited.

Also I've got a post at The Stamp Spot today so pop over and have a looksie.
Here is a little sneaky....
