Bright and Sunny

My daughter is off to a birthday party tonight so we have made a card and a box to put the gift in.

The weather here today it raining so with these being made in a nice bright yellow it is like a touch of sunshine.

Have decided to enter this into the SUO Challenge 15 - Birthday Cards.

Just Add Ink 59 A sketch Challenge

There is a sketch challenge for us over at JAI this week and this is what I came up with.  I haven't used this set for quite a while but thought it would work for this birthday card today.  It is the Every Moment set and I have made the card in Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie to match the bag I made last week that you can see here.

  I have even used the daisy on the inside of the card too.

Vicki's Birthday

Hello Again.  Today is my friend Vicki's birthday " HAPPY BIRTHDAY  VICKI" and this is what we gave her.

It is a combination of my last two posts and in some of her favourite colors.  So I decided I would get her a scarf for her present as it would fit into the lovely bag.

I gave it to her last night when we went to her house for a very enjoyable meal and she loved it  (as I knew she would).  She was actually at my house crafting with me when I made the card but I didn't tell her what I intended to use it for.

Bags, Bags and more Bags

Just a quick post to show you all what I have been doing this week. Bags, bags and more bags.  Actually there are only two but it sounded so much better this way. The pattern for these lovely bags I found at the Paper Crafters Library a site set up by Andrea Walford which I have joined.

The first one I made was the Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie for which I made a faux suede  flower using the fancy flower punch the leaves from the two step bird and a little old olive button.   
 The other one is Real Red and Black with a square red fire brad and some silver smooch spritz.

Have to dash now as I have a class to go to so will be back later as I haven't finished here yet.

Just Add Ink # 58

This week over at Just Add Ink we have been challenged to Just Add Amanda or Danielle.  These 2 amazing ladies are the co-founders of Just Add Ink and have decided to step down from the Design Team.  So this weeks challenge is a tribute to them.

I have CASEd a card of Amanda's which you can see Here and I also decided that as it is wear Red and Black day here in New Zealand in support of Christchurch I would use those colours for my card.

So I used Basic Black and Real Red card stock, Real Red satin ribbon, Newsprint and Real Red DSPs, Silver Smooch Spritz, a Rhinestone Brad and some Dazzling Diamonds to finish it off.  As you can see I haven't used any stamps but ink has been used is some subtle sponging and the flower was made using the Fancy Flower punch.

 Thanks Amanda and Danielle for you great inspiration.
