I really wanted to have a go at the Just Add Ink challenge last week but didn't get there in time but decided yesterday I would still have a go... the challenge was to use the colours Chocolate Chip, Barley Banana and Kiwi Kiss, But since I knew I was entering the card I changed the Kiwi Kiss to Old Olive I thought it suited the stems better.
Maybe this week I will get a bit more organized and have a few more things for you to look at.

I have mixed feelings about the change because there will be some colours I will dearly miss like Pink passion and Mellow moss.
Here is a list of the colours that will be retired come August 2010
But then WOW take a look at the New colour collection.....

This is one of the wedding cards I made, this one was for the beautiful Trista and her new hubby Brenden who were married a couple of weeks ago.
Just using basic black and white can make a wedding card look so elegant and classy...
The stamp set was Baroque Motifs and I added some pearls from the Pretties Kit. Very simple but very classy don't you think?
Thanks for looking
This month we are making this card pack using the Fifth Avenue stamp set and includes 3 cards matching envelopes and the cute little box to keep them in.
I have chosen to use Brocade Blue, Close to Cocoa and Very Vanilla card stock,ink and ribbon.
This one was my pick out of them I think because I have used the Butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and that is my all time favorite stamp set.
Till next time

Not sure if you can see it clearly but the centre picture and the two stars together pop forward when the card is opened.

Well how slack am I already... Promising I would be back yesterday with pic's and didn't,
Sorry but was still sorting a few things out on here, but I think I am finally on to it all, so away I go with my first attempt at pic's for you.
You gotta love this Hippo from the Pun Fun stamp set, I think he is so cute... I have also made a couple of pop up cards using this set will put them on tomorrow.
For both cards I stamped the hippo on water colour paper and use my aqua painter and basic grey to colour them, For the boy card I used Sanded background and Hello again stamps, Real Red Brilliant Blue and Green Galore card, Real Red striped ribbon and coloured his bow tie and balloons with markers.
For the girl I used the little flower out of Simply said with Real red and Pink passion card I looove these colours together and white taffeta ribbon, I paper pierced and used my scallop edge punch on both too.
Thanks for stopping by...
