Just swinging by…

to say hi! ๐Ÿ˜€

Still alive, but everyone in our household has been sick with the dreaded gastro bug, and I’m suffering with quite a severe head/chest cold at the moment, so all creativity has been put on the backburner of late! Will be back shortly, but I didn’t want anyone to think I’d fallen off the face of the earth!

Hope your little corner of paradise is treating you well!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 13 – Colour

Gosh I have no idea where this year is going! There seems to be so much going on, and so little time to try and squeeze everything in! Of course, here I am again squeezing in my entry for the Colour Challenge over at Just Add Ink at the very last minute. (Well, technically tonight that’s not true, I still have just under an hour & 45 minutes to get it loaded – so proud or myself!!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the combo that Amanda & Danielle have set for this week:

And my entry:

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps :       Autumn Days
Paper :          Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Barely Banana
Ink :              Chocolate Chip
Ribbon :        Chocolate Chip 1″ Double Stitched Grosgrain
Other :          Loop to Loop Rub-Ons (hostess), Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Barely                       Banana Marker, Dimensionals, Sewing Machine.

So I got to use my brand new Sewing Machine that my wonderful In-Laws bought me a couple of weeks ago for the stitching, and I love it!! I’ve been playing with it a bit over the last week, but tonight was the first night I put some paper in it and I must say, it won’t be the last!! I’ve been browsing fabric shops & blogs over the net too this week and, ooh-lah-lah, there’s some gorgeous fabrics and patterns out there! I’ve really got to start with the basics and learn how to sew a straight line first though!!

Seeya back here tomorrow for my entry into Keesh’s Sketch Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 12 – Sketch


I know it’s been a while, but we’ve been away on holidays, and my poor old blog is showing some serious signs of neglect! Time to update to the correct mini I think!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s the sketch challenge the girls over at Just Add Ink set this week:

… and here’s my card for the challenge. Now, I’m not 100% certain that I haven’t CASE’d this card from somewhere… something is niggling in the back of my mind telling me that I have – and if I have and this card looks at all familiar, please let me know! I have just had a look in my Favourites over at SCS and at my Fave folder in Firefox, and can’t see anything that I’ve saved… but that doesn’t mean anything!

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps :       Whimsical Words
Paper :          Melon Mambo, Taken With Teal, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss
Ink :              Melon Mambo, Kiwi Kiss
Ribbon :        Melon Mambo
Other :          Top Note Die, Large Two Step Bird Punch, Taken With Teal Stampin’ Write                                 Marker, Blender Pen, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
