Just add ink - patterned paper challenge #23

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge is to use patterned paper on your project. I used some stampin up patterned paper to make these two cards. I made the dress then thought a girl can't go out without a hand bag to match! The bag is easy to make with the square and circle punches. I can't tell you how many skirts I made until I got the pleats just right.

I Loved doing a girly card. I used an accessories stamp set I've had for a few years for the background.

Just add ink - colour challenge #22

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge was to use this fantastic colour combination.

I don't have any Rich razzleberry so once again I called on my friend Kim for her stamp pad. While surfing You Tube I found this great tutorial to make pansies with the butterfly punch. They used water but I decided to use the ink and alcohol technique, you can find this tutorial on Chantell's blog. Because I didn't have any rich razzleberry I mixed Elegant eggplant, Rose red and regal rose re inkers to get as close to rich razzleberry as I could.

I used my new Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set for the background and words. Any way I hope you like it.

Party clowns

6 years ago I delivered a friends baby girl. For Sarah's birthday party her mum asked if I could do something with the children that she could then put some sweets in.

So this is what we made fun clown boxes.

Here are the boxes they all made.

Wedding bells

Recently a friend of ours married. A great reason to make a pretty card!
Congratulations Tarsh and Kenton.

I used the flower from baroque motifs stamp set. I also used Crystal Effects and glitter in the centre of each flower for a little sparkle.

A tribute to an old friend

16 years ago I rescued a fluffy little kitten and named her Puke (pronounced Pookee). She was very frightened of people but not of our dog, and they became best friends. Soon she got used to us and turned out to be quite a character. She loved playing with water, was a great hunter and chased torch lights literally up the wall.
Puke became a cat for the whole family living with Rob and I and my sister Chantell and her family.
18 months age Puke started to look very thin and after a trip to the vet we were told she had only 2 weeks to live. We took her home knowing she was on borrowed time. The next thing we know she's proudly bring us the fruits of her hunting and continued to live happily.
Sadly last month puke passed away peacefully at home. Classy to the end.

A tribute to Puke
Chantell made this wonderful album for me. It has pull out photos with space on the back of each one for us to write about the cool things Puke did. Thanks so much Chantell I love it!

Puke loved to lounge around and show off her fluffy tummy.

She had a pink and white toy mouse she loved to play with. Here she is with my niece Sarah.

Just chillin'

I always loved her big whiskers.
