Just Add Pearls 121 JAI

Oh my!  It's been 6 months since I've last posted on my blog! That is just plain terrible!
I've been having a little break from creating - just felt I wasn't enjoying it anymore which I felt very sad about. I also have been super busy working at a seasonal job - which has been fun in a way but lots of long hours.  That has pretty much finished now - and I've found I suddenly have some spare time on my hands - bonus!

For 6 months I have successfully avoided my craft table...until today!  I finally had a few minutes where I found myself doing a bit of blog hopping etc on the computer and remembered that I have terribly neglected Just Add Ink since I finished up on the Design Team last year - so I visited and saw that this week's challenge is Just Add Pearls - and if anyone knows me well, they'll know that I LOVE pearls and wear my pearl earrings most days!
So... I took it all as a sign - it's time...time to dust off the craft table and let some creative juices start to flow!

I had a person in mind when I made this card - and I know she's gonna love it when I get to deliver it to her in person very soon!

Enough it is!

I realised once I had finished this card that there is no stamping on it at all!  I used a bit of ink around the edges of each piece and the sentiment is a Rub-On I found tucked away in the forgotten Rub-On folder!

Thanks for coming to look - and hopefully it won't be another 6 months before I create again!


  1. I think it is a beautiful card Tania, and I love the crochet flower with pearl centre. It looks fabulous!

    It is lovely to find you back blogging too. I want to see more of your luscious green grass and your cute sheep (goofy, I know, but I like looking at pretty country pictures :-).

  2. Tania I am glad you dusted off your craft table and found inspiration again from Just Add Ink...we miss you! This is a lovely card and it reminds me that I too have some rubons that could do with seeing the front or inside of a card! I am about to have a free evening home but me and the doggie so maybe my craft room might have my presence for the evening! I am sure your friend will just love this beautiful handmade card. ♥

  3. Wow! Tania, I did a double take in my blog reader! It's so great to have you creating again and what a beautiful card to launch you back onto that craft table of yours.

  4. Hey Tania,
