Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #17

Hi all!

I am sorry it has been such a long time between posts, with promises of Regionals projects etc still not uploaded - but I am getting there slowly! It has been a huge eye opener for me this year, thinking that I would have heaps of time to make my Christmas cards and little gifts... not realising that everything else (orders, workshops, classes etc) steps up in the leadup to Christmas as well! Not to mention people are still having birthdays too... ;)

Since it is the last Inkspirations Challenge for the year (and if you look back through my posts, you will see that these are what got me into blogging in the first place), I decided to make an extra-special effort to join in! Here is Keesh's fab sketch:

And here is my card, on its way to friends who have recently welcomed their second daughter into the world!

Stamps: Wild About You, Short Order Alphabet, Polka Dot background

Cardstock: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla, Candy Lane DSP

Ink: Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose

Accessories: Very Vanilla jumbo brads, Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, blender pen, dimensionals.

I have lined the inside of the card and used some of the fantastic new Chit Chat rub ons for the sentiment inside.

Pop back this afternoon for another post - I have to go and get my bub off to sleep now!

  6. Funny, I was flipping through the slide show on Keesh's website, not paying attention to names & thought "I really like that card, might CASE it for my friend's baby dedication", then come here & realise it was your's!!!! It is so cute, I love it.
    Hope life is going along ok for you at this busy time. Will have to email you when life is a bit less crazy & catch up with how you're going.
    Have a great weekend,
    Love Fi xox
