Lesley’s back from her month long blogging break (hope you had a wonderful holiday Lesley) and has provided us with the following sketch at Merry Monday this week:
I attended our Heartfelt Stampin’ Event on Saturday and then realised when I got home that I hadn’t completed this card for the challenge. This would be the fastest card I’ve made in ages. I’ve gone monochromatic (surprise, surprise!) for my card because they were the colours I had on my desk. Back to the Heartfelt Stampin’ Event – I had a fantastic time and finally got to meet some of my fellow Just Add Ink DT members – Tina, Christine & Jo. Thanks girls for taking me in and allowing me to hang with you all!
Here’s my card:
I hope you have time to check out this weeks challenge and the gorgeous project from the Merry Makers by clicking here – and hopefully you’ll have time to join in.
Thanks for stopping by.
Can you believe my month of Guest Designing at Freshly Made Sketches has come to an end? This month has flown and I’m trying to find where it went. I have thoroughly enjoyed my month of hanging with the DT and want to thank the Lesley and the girls for having me and for being so welcoming. I also want to thank everyone that has left wonderful and supportive comments for me – it’s such a thrill to receive them!
Now for the fantastic sketch provided for us by Lesley – how cool is this one?
I made my card with Mother’s Day in mind. I’ve used Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla for my card and dragged out my old faithful Stampin’ Up! flower set – Fifth Avenue Floral. I can’t wait for the new catalogue as I’m hoping there’ll be some new flowery type stamp sets for me to play with.
Thanks for taking a look and if you have time, head over the to challenge and join in.

I came across Colour Throwdown Challenge a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to enter until this week. When I first saw these colours they threw me a bit, especially as we don’t have Pool Party in Australia yet, so I’ve substituted Pool Party with an old favourite – Baja Breeze. Not sure if you can tell by the photo but I daubed around every piece of card with Crumb Cake. Once I started daubing, I couldn’t stop. My poor old dauber was worn out by the end of it!
Here’s what I came up with:

This is my third post today – I’m on a roll! This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is Just Add Mateship/Friendship for ANZAC Day. What a wonderful idea for a challenge! I’ve used the Strength & Hope stamp set because when I was searching for a stamp set to use, the words from this set sang out to me. They seemed so relevant for our fallen soldiers who fought for our countries.
Thanks for stopping by!
