Just Add Ink

Hi everyone,

Well it has been over two weeks since I last got my fingers inky and I have to say it has been driving me nuts. The down side - when I finally got into my craft room - no mojo!!!! I think it has something to do with the fact that I can't stand up easily and get what I want off my shelves.

I saw the Just Add Ink Colour challenge and seeing it uses three of my most favorite colours I thought I would have a go. Strictly speaking it is not keeping with the challenge as I have used Whisper White as well but oh well.

I am going back to the Specialist on Tuesday so will have an opportunity to hand in a Thank you card to the wonderful nurses on the ward I was in. There is one nurse in particular who I need to thank. His name is Bede and he has been nursing now for 17 years. He has such a positive attitude and calls a spade a spade. He says if you are upset then that is OK. However if you don't want to get out of bed he will not have it!!! Whilst I was waiting the roller coaster of when I was going to have my operation he was the one that kept me sane. So whilst looking at the Just Add Ink colour challenge I thought I would make him his own Thank you card.

Here I have used Kraft (soon to be Crumbcake) as the card base, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip as mats. Kraft Taffeta Ribbon. The stamps are from Friends 24-7 and of course Tiny Tags. The 'button' is from the Sizzlets Button Die from the Autumn/Winter Mini.

Hope you like it,

'Til next time,

This is simple but stunning and I'm sure Bede would have loved it! Great to see your mojo is back (not that I believed for one minute it had gone anywhere).
