This week the Just Add Ink Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge that has been suggested by Trish. Below is a pic to inspire you with whatever you are creating this week – be it a Card, Scrap-booking Layout or 3D project………..
Here is the card I made:
Go to the Just Add Ink Website to check out the Design team projects that were inspired this pic. We were inspired by a variety of the elements within the pic and have come up with lots of different ideas. So join us in this Challenge and share your idea’s with us.
A friend of mine mentioned to me the other week (while we were crafting) that she really like the Shabby Chic style…….so I decided I’d give it a go. And I have been mulling it over for a few days.
So now that it is time for the new Just Add Ink Challenge (#312) I thought…….OK now’s the time to give it a go……….
Challenge # 312 at Just Add Ink is a Colour Challenge – and I think it’s a lovely one. Really helps that my fav colour is Blue…….
So here is the card I came up with:
I did have much in the way of Mint Macaron, so had to improvise a wee bit. And I thought to make it truly Shabby Chic, it should have been a bit more aged, but because I was working on sticking to the colours I decided not to add any colours that would make it look more aged.
These colours are stunning and I am looking forward to see what you all come up with for this challenge. Join us at Just Add Ink for this challenge.
We have an Inspiration Challenge at Just Add Ink this week. This “Inspiration” Challenges has heaps of great elements to inspire you, fun patterns, pretty colours and texture ideas. We hope it inspires you to get creative and join in the fun.
Here is the card I made:
I enjoyed putting this card together and I’m sure you’ll have fun playing along with this challenge too. Join us at Just Add Ink to share your project and check out the rest of the Design Team project.s.
We have a sweet Colour Challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink – very pretty colours
Come and join us for this challenge at Just Add Ink – see what the Design Team have put together and also show us your creations.
Sometimes, producing a ‘Man Card’ can be hard to do. I often ask my husband his opinion and if there is any hint of glitter or ribbon – he deems it “just tooooo girly”!
So this week at Just Add Ink we are sharing our Man Card ideas, for the Just Add Cards for Males Challenge.
Here is the card I put together for this challenge:
As you can see – there is no glitter, flowers or ribbon……so I think it fits!
Head on over to Just Add Ink for more Cards for Males – the Design Team have some great cards to share. Join us for the Challenge and share your projects with us.
It’s Color Combo time at Just Add Ink this week and it’s a great Colour Combo too – put together by Kim.
This incorporates a couple of the In-colours, Tip Top Taupe and Lost Lagoon and then two very pretty blues, Soft Sky and Pool Party.
When I looked in my stash of stuff in my craft room I realised I did not have any Tip Top Taupe and the only Soft Sky item I had, was some ribbon. So I did have to improvise a little. Instead of Tip To Taupe I used Crumb Cake. Here is my card.
With such pretty colours (can you tell I like them) you HAVE to go and check out what the Design Team at Just Add Ink have made – beautiful. And then, join us for this Challenge too.
I have had a busy couple of weeks….well weekends really….
As many of you have heard, I completed the Weekend to End Women’s Cancer Walk last weekend. And I had a great time doing it.
It was 7.00am on Saturday that we started out from McCallum – after an address from a man in a Pink Tutu (who happened to the be the head of the Harry Perkins Institute) and some inspirational words from a Cancer Survivor, Lee.
Day One of the course took us round Mill point and past the Zoo, along Como beach, across the Canning Highway bridge, down Matheson Road, through Ardross to the Esplanade and back over Kwinana Freeway, past Collier Park Golf Course, through South Perth back to McCallum Park.
Lee that addressed the walkers at the beginning of the day, ended up being my walking companion for last 7km on day one……she inspired me to keep going and we chatted all the way.
I came in on day one tired but not sore. Then I snuck off home to rest.
Day Two, the course opened at 6.30am – we went across the Causeway and under the bridge, around the WACA, up into Northbridge. There were lots of strays, making their way home from the night before!! We then headed towards Mount Lawley, through Hyde Park, through Leederville and along the Mitchell Freeway. We went around Lake Monger, past Subiaco Stadium and down through Kings Park. We walked along Mounts Bay Road and over the Narrows, along the South Perth Esplanade back to McCallum Park. I finished up with a couple of small blisters – but not too bad overall.
The entire weekend was a lot of fun. The event was very well organised, with plenty of food, water, support and cheering along the way.
A total of $2.2 Million was raised for Women’s Cancer Research with 845 Walkers.
I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to those of you that donated to this cause. You helped me to raise just over $2100. The money we raised is being used right now for new equipment and research staff to fight cancer.
And – I enjoyed it so much…..I want to do it all again next year. With some friends, I am putting a team together – cause it’s so much easier to walk with a buddy or two. So if anyone is keen to join us in a year’s time, let me know.

So as you can see – it was a great weekend and a great achievement – walking 60km.
The weekend before was also busy – as I ran a fundraising Craft Afternoon. I will be adding pic’s of the projects we made that afternoon here shortly.
