Inkspirations Challenge 26


Finally Friday is here, I know I say it often but what a week! I am happy the weekend is here however my weekend is filled with lots of work but I still plan to catch up with some of my favourite people and have a little fun. I have been feeling a little uncreative lately as I am sure you can tell, I am happy to report I feel like my mojo is back! Last weekend I did my last classes in a scrapbook store, which was sad because I have been working in scrapbook stores for years teaching classes all over Sydney but I have stopped doing it so I can focus on my current career direction, having said that there will also be some changes here coming to my blog and with my Stampin’ Up! business soon. I hope to post a little more now I don’t have classes to design for stores.

Anyway I know you are here not to hear all about me or my week but to see a little eye candy and what I did for this weeks Inkspiration challenge. Keesh gave the DT a colour challenge this week….here are the colours:


Here is my card for this week, I am so happy with this card and just think it is super cute. I don’t think I can part with this one and normally I don’t talk myself up {well I don’t think I normally do anyway} but I am feeling pretty clever for coming up with this one 🙂 The Real Red DSP I have used is retired it was from a 2007 Simply Scrappin kit, I hand most of my scrap DSP to my 4 year old niece Bailey so I had to borrow it from her stash….


Loving the inside too….


If your wondering how I made the banner… well I used these stamps from Party Hearty, the row of party hats which I used upside down and punched the “celebrate” out with a small Circle Punch. I love Party Hearty and it is my most used birthday set.



Check out the other DT’s creations and be inspired!
