Just Add Ink #319

I’m pleased to say I actually made a card despite the school holiday chaos. Yesterday we had storms and hail. The kids were so bored because they couldn’t go outside. Then the power went out… and the kids really learn’t the true meaning of being bored! Thank goodness I had a charged i-pad that they could all fight over whilst we shivered in the cold with no heating and no way to even make a hot cuppa. Today I think the kids and I have new found respect and admiration for electricity.

Anyway whilst the power was out I coloured in some images from Simon Says Stamp to create a berry wreath for the Just Add Ink #319 Inspiration Challenge.

Apart from creating a wreath using the little branches and foam tape I also tried to incorporate the wood of the door by using a woodgrain stamp as my background. I’ve used similar colours from the picture with my little stars and dots.

Merry & Bright card

I currently have the kids all making cards so hopefully I might get to make a few creations myself.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog! Em
