Just Add Ink #45

Well i didn't have to try to hard to make a card for this weeks JUST ADD INK challenge.
I have one of my very very oldest friends little boy turning 1 next week and yesterday one of my most cherish girlfriends invited me around to help make her X mas cards all day long.
So while i was in 100% card making mode i made this card.
I had such a great time and the chance to Raid my friends stash and use stamps that i don't have.
Im not going to pop a card recipe on this one cause its a mix of Su and non SU but i was so excited to use "All in the family " to make the little birthday boy on my card(and i didn't use a stamp-a-ma-jig either)
till next time

Just Add Ink# 42

I've been a little bit absent from the stamping world, we had to focus on starting the renovations for the outside of the house but lucky for me its been a rubbish weekend for it cause it was raining off and on so i had a little time to make this card but Ive only been able to post today,
here's my take on the challenge, i wanted to start experimenting with Xmas cause i still don't have any idea for my Chrissie cards this year. I've been dying to try to make this rosette thing that ive seen in the catalouge and a scowerd u-tube to find a demonstration
i also brayed over the embossing folder image with some ink and a brayer and then used some glitter to make it stand out to have ago at this challenge please visit Just add Ink
i hope you like
till next time
