Just Add Ink Challenge #61

Woohoo, don't fall over in surprise but I can say that I actually made a card or two today!!! It feels like it has been so long since I have actually made a card and it also feels like a long time since I joined in a Just Add Ink Challenge.

After seeing this challenge I must admit that I couldn't resist. The challenge this week was to Just Add Stamps and nothing else. You can find this challenge here.

So onto my entry card:-
This card was inspired by a blog I came across belonging to Patty and you can find her inspiration card here. I loved the simplicity of Patty's card and new it would be perfect for this challenge.

I have used Very Vanilla as the base of my card followed by a piece of Crumb Cake which has been versamarked with the image from the Bliss set and have torn the top. I have also added a little stamping onto the small strip of Concord Crush. The main image has been stamped off with Close to Cocoa to give it a more softer look and the butterfly is stamped in Concord Crush. It is all nicely finished off with a "happy mother's day" stamp and ready to put into my stash for this next upcoming occasion.

So there we have it (finally!!), a lovely quick and easy card. It is so nice sometimes to just get back to the basics.

Now you will have to stay tuned for the next card. At the moment it is literally bucketing down rain so any chance of getting good pics is definitely out of the question. I am so over this rain - I just want to be able to walk in my yard without sinking in the mud.

Happy stamping,

Soooo pretty Karen! Glad you've found time for cards again.

We must be on the same wave length, I made a card using the Bliss set, and similar colours on Friday night.
