Just Add Ink Challenge

While Jessica was making a card for Fathers Day, I thought I would try another challenge site at Just Add Ink. I met some of the girls on the team there at Convention in Brisbane this year and I am very inspired by what they do each week with the challenges. Here is this week's sketch . . .

I decided to get a head start on my Christmas cards with this challenge. I was checking out some blogs recently and a lot of people make one Christmas card every week throughout the year, so when they get to Christmas, they have a pile already done. I think I have left my run a little late, but better late than never. Here is my card . . .

Project Recipe

I'm On A Roll

I decided while I was at it I would have a go at another Challenge Site. This one is called Dynamic Duos and the challenge this week was to make a card using Pool Party and Basic Black.
Here is the Challenge . . .

And here is my card . . .

Project Recipe
StampsPostage Collection (Hostess), Best Dad Ever (Retired)
Card stock & Papers    Basic Black, Pool Party
 InkBasic Black
AccessoriesPool Party Brads
Tools    Postage Stamp Punch, 1-1/2" Square Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig

I like the clean and simple look of this card and I just hope that my Dad doesn't look at my blog before Father's Day (not likely really). If you love the look of this stamp set, contact me to host a party and you could get it for free!

First Challenge Post

I have decided to try one of the Challenge Sites that a few friends have talked about as a way of trying out some new styles of cards. The first one I have attempted is for a site called Mojo Monday #307 where they post a sketch of a card and you make up the card in your own colours, card-stock and DSP.
Here is the sketch . . .

And here is my card. . . .

Project Recipe

I really enjoyed creating this card and putting my own stamp on it, so to speak. Why don't you gave it a try too?
