Just Add Ink # 30/ Inkspirations challenge #34

First of all i would like to mention that it is only Two more weeks till the new SU catalouge hits Australia and I am soooo excited.
i havent got much of a chance to stamp this weekend so i an combining a few goals in one with this card. Well we've been busy visiting our new Nephew who arrived on Wednesday.His name is Zain Nicholas Moore and he is sooo cute, and my husband is soooo clucky. He was a whooper at 3.93 kgs. (must be the Moore Genes)
So this card is going to one on my Good friends Who is 30 today. We went out to dinner at the Meat and Wine Co in Parramatta last night and i dont think i will eat for a week.
So i have used to challenges for my inspiration. the Inkpirations sketch Challenge #34 , but more special is the Just add in #30 Challenge. Add Honor of a very special little boy name Hudson who needs some help to raise money for a walker. The stamping community is amazing to come together to help a family in need. If you want to read more about helping Hudson please click here , and if you want to play along with either challenge visit Inkspirations and Just add Ink
So this turned out to be a great masculine card. here's a tip, if you don't have nestabilities or dies to cut out scallop ovals or circles, I have used my oval cutter first and then carefully punched the edge with a scallop punch to achieve a similar look hope this helps
Till next time peace out

Fox and Friends

So my brother in law and his wife are about to give birth any second. (shes due today) so i thought that i would make a baby card to welcome the new arrival when it turns up. They know they are having a boy so i thought what a perfect time to whip out fox and friends... I have the say that i did case the design for this from another blog called let me stamp, so i cant take all the credit . I also did the inside of the card which i see the very talented Tenelle Williams use for her lovely cards.

Just Add ink #29

Hi Guys,
This weeks challenge from the just add ink girls is a colour Challenge. I was glad that i could get back to my roots and be as girly and blingy as i wanted to be. I don't have always artichoke , so i have substituted with Mellow Moss which is sadly going to Stampin up colour heaven.
I started off making one card and then made another with the left overs . I was happy with both cards so i'm going to show off both.
If you were wondering how i did the ticket corners on the birthday card, i just used the scalloped oval punch and nipped off the corners to make the pearls stand out a little more. If you want to join in on the fun please click here
