JAI Challenge #52

Another week, another challenge over at Just Add Ink! I am lucky to have my good friend and Stampin Up! upline Christine Stevens staying with me this weekend and this morning after breakfast we sat and made some cards… Here is my creation;

For this card I wanted to use Daffodil Delight Cardstock, so I consulted my Color Coach… and then modified the colours to use up what I had! I used some now retired Designer Series Paper and Ribbon, but the remainder of the supplies are available. All in all, I was quite please with my result! I hope you all enjoy it too!

And this is my friend Christine’s creation;

I hope you all have a good weekend! Australia Day is looming!!!

Just Add Ink and Flood Appeal

With my return to work after 4 weeks off approaching very fast, I felt like making a card or two this muggy evening in Sydney! SO what better challenge to play along with than the Just Add Ink Challenge #51… JUST ADD MONOCHROME! I was a little stumped at first, until I decided to run with pink… yes, yes not my natural first choice with cards… but I relly wanted to use the “Autumn Days” stamp set, as it has a few nice simple stamp designs… and well, pink just seemed to happen!

Also it is with great pleasure that I announce the following release from Stampin Up!;

As flood waters continue to inundate Australia in what has been described as the worst flooding in 37 years, we express our deepest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones and homes and to those whose lives have been changed forever. We, like so many of you, feel a compelling need to lend support to all those who have been affected.

Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have a long history of making a difference in the lives of others–especially when disaster strikes and the need is greatest. Nearly two years ago, we watched another tragedy unfold in Australia. Our hearts were touched as demonstrators, customers and friends joined together in support of the Bushfire Appeal. We’ve done it before and we can certainly do it again!

Please join with us by supporting the Australia Flood Appeal–a cause in which Stampin’ Up! will donate $2 AUD of the retail value of sales from any stamp set (with a retail value of $30 or more) sold in Australia and New Zealand from 15 January through 15 February to the State Emergency Services in Queensland.

SO, jump on board and order  stamp set or TWO, or THREE!? Ha ha, we really need to support this very worthwhile cause.
