Just Add Ink #10 - colour challenge

Wow, it's time for JAI's 10th challenge already. Where has that time gone. I couldn't wait to get started on this colour challenge because I really love this combo. A certain little someone (see here), had other plans though and I had to do my stamping in bits and pieces. That's the way it goes these days. At least it gives me time to come up with lots of ideas. Here is my card and a little gift box for this week. I am thinking of giving this to Mum for Mother's Day with some earrings in the box.

This is such a simple card to make - no fiddling with ribbon to make bows etc. The glitter was added using a line of sticky strip and the glitter poured straight over the top. I like usuing this technique when I'm not using ribbon on the project.

As always, thanks for visiting my blog.

Ink - close to cocoa, blush blossom, versamark, Cardstock - close to cocoa textured cardstock, cameo coral, blush blossom, kraft, Stamps - I {heart} hearts, short and sweet , Accessories - sticky strip, glitter, clear embossing powder, dimensionals

Our new baby girl - Grace Amelia

Well, after my blogging holiday I am back to share our exciting news - we have a new baby girl. Grace Amelia was born on the 24th February, weighing 7lb 3oz or 3250g. She was 47cm long. Grace is a fairly calm baby, despite being loved to bits by her big sister Madeleine (almost 22months). Madeleine is so excited when she sees Grace and loves telling her name to anyone who will listen. I was hoping to be back into the blogging by now but it's been a busy month of getting to know Grace, which is the most important thing at the moment. Here are a few photos of our girls.

I'll be back in a few days with my Just Add Ink design team creation.
