Cardabilities #91 & Dynamic Duos #87

Hey Everyone

I’m coming to the end of my four week holiday and I’m trying to figure out exactly what I’ve done in all that time.  These four weeks have just flown and I’m wishing I could rewind and start my holiday again!

I’ve been out all day but had a bit of a chance to play in my craft room tonight and whipped up a card for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Cardabilities and the colour challenge at The Dynamic Duos.

Black is my new favourite colour again for my card bases. So when I saw the challenge at Dynamic Duos was to create a card with Basic Black and Melon Mambo, I knew this challenge would suit me to a tee.  I had to forgo the dessert option of adding an umbrella as I didn’t really know how to incorporate one with my flowery card.

Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #124

Hey Everyone

This week over at Just Add Ink, Mae has come up with the following colour scheme for us to use.

I have to admit this is a combination that I would never normally put together and it took me a while to even get started this week…..this is why challenges are good for me, they get me out of my comfort zone and make me try new things.

I’ve used a retired stamp set called Love and Care that I have only recently purchased from one of my fellow JAI design team members – thanks Bron! – it’s my new favourite flowery stamp set.

I hope you have time to check out what the very crafty design team have created this week at Just Add Ink and if you have time, we hope you can play along.

Thanks for stopping by.
