It's Wednesday evening here and feels like it should be Friday. Why is it that the weeks just fly by so fast - UNTIL you are counting down to holiday. Only three weeks to go until I'm back at the Great Barrier Reef scuba diving with the fishies.
Anyways, it's Ruby's Rainbow Challenge Time! The challenge this fortnight is:
ONE FOR THE BOYS
Now making boys cards is always a bit more of a challenge for me, I mean what can you do if you can't add pearls and lace?? However La La Land have the cutest little boy stamps, and with stamps like those you don't actually need many other embellishments. For my DT work for Ruby's Rainbow, I have used Fireman Luca.
My exciting achievement is the creation of a background paper using Tim Holtz distress ink. I hadn't tried it before and really wasn't at all confident, but I love how it turned out. Now a whole host of distress ink pads are on my wish list!
I hope you'll join us with your own "for the boys" creation at Ruby's Rainbow.
Also entered into the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy - try a new technique
Southern Girls Challenge - anything goes
Until next time,
