Thankful for you

With a day off yesterday I was thankful that I could spend a morning with my daughter just chatting and sharing mother/daughter stuff. I also spent some time sorting some paperwork with my husband who I have been thankful for over these last couple of busy months. I have been working long hours and he has been off work and at home, which has ended up in him being chief cook and as soon I have walked in the door he heats it up ready for my. How lucky am I?

Later yesterday afternoon instead of then doing some housework or other chores I got to play in my craft room and as I was feeling in a thankful and creative mood I made a card for today's Just Add Ink challenge. Today it is a colour challenge and they are a beautiful colour combination as you will see from the projects created by the team. Here are the colours...


Here is the card that I created with the colours above...


With such a pretty card front I thought I should carry some of this beauty over to the inside...


Maybe when I feel inspired I should actually write in this card a special message to my daughter and tell her how thankful I am to have her as part of my life. Always nice to receive handmade cards and not just on your birthday or special occasions. We should always check on our friends and family and make sure they are ok, don't you think?

I am so thankful for so many things in my life and also for the wonderful team at Just Add Ink who have allowed me to slacken off with my Design Team commitments for a few months while the 'busy tax season' is upon me and dims my creativity! I don't even get creative with clients figures as that would not do for the ATO!

Have a lovely weekend. I will be spending part of it working and little of it planning my upcoming NZ trip with one of my BFFs.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop over at Just Add Ink to see what inspiration the other team members have for you with this lovely colour combo!

New Stampin' Up! YouTube Videos on the Holiday Catalogue

Sorry for the lack of inspiration here on my blog lately, but my daytime job has been keeping me extremely busy and tired.

However, not to worry as the Stampin' Up! training team has been hard at work and they have some great videos for you to provide the inspiration for you while mine is lacking! They have some great videos based on the new Holiday Catalogue that is out (contact me if you would like your own hardcopy).

Just Add Ink Challenge

It has been a while since I made a card for a Just Add Ink challenge, however, I found some time to myself last Sunday and in my craft room!

This week it is a colour combination suggested by Kim and I have used one of our newest stamp sets Kinda Eclectic. Here are the colours....


And here is my card...

Need for speed...no a card really!

This week my daughter's boyfriend turned 21 and she has organised a surprise celebration for him tomorrow night (he doesn't follow my blog so no secrets blown out of the water by me here lol) and so I had the need for a card. As Jake still has the need for speed at times I thought what more appropriate than using just that stamp set by Stampin' Up! Need for Speed (now retired)...although I think I have made one for him before using it, although that time the car was red if I remember correctly.

I found a terrific tutorial by Michelle Zindorf here In My Dust and thought that would make my card making process so much quicker as I am working tomorrow and only had tonight get it designed and made. This has only been the second time in the last couple of months that I have managed to create in my craft room as my time has been busy with work...tax time is my busy season! The other card I made you can see tomorrow on my blog as part of this week's Just Add Ink challenge.

Anyway, here is the card that I made for Jake and I hope he likes it...and it doesn't encourage him to do burnouts (knowing he has in the past!).


I even decorated the inside of the card too.


Don't forget to pop by my blog tomorrow to see my entry for this week's Just Add Ink challenge.
