My dear friend Naomi and I chose to spend our Wednesday together today - what's a mere 565kms over water between friends! With the help of the trusty telephone and internet, we had a lovely day chatting and creating!

Today, we chose to do the Mojo Monday Sketch (below) but before I could start, a quick dash down to the Post Office (15km round trip) to pick up my much anticipated BIG order was required!!! Woo hoo!! New Designer Papers! So couldnt resist using them today. I chose the beautiful Bella Rose papers - so pretty!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Red Riding Hood, Kiwi Kiss
Designer Paper: Bella Rose
Stamps: A Rose Is A Rose, Best Yet
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 1/4 Circle, Photo Corners
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black

Inkspirations Colour Challenge #15

What a glorious pre-Summer day and I've got the sunburn to prove it! In between buying a house and driving the tractor for my dad today, I managed to whip up this simple card for Makeesha Byl's "Colour Challenge" using Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa and Very Vanilla! Not my choice of colours so it was even more fun for me to make something out of my normal choice of pinks!!!

The 2 Very-Vanilla squares have been screwed up into a tight ball several times then spread back out again to give a crumbled, "loved" look (as well as the Really Rust strip behind). I have used Close To Cocoa with a Sponge Dauber to gently soften the edges etc and I have clear-embossed the Close To Cocoa birthday greeting. Hope you like it!
