Day 1

So, here I sit.   University lectures are now over for the year and I am on study leave for the week before two exams on Saturday.    I should be studying, I want to stamp and create.   So the battle between the two begins.   To add to the mix, I have both my youngest home for the day and the neighbours almost 3 year old daughter for the morning.   She loves my stamps and punches and so it's likely that I will wait until she has left before I do any stamping.

On Friday night the wonderful  Paula Dobson  came over to run a class for myself and a lovely group of ladies.   I so would love to show what we made but we have been sworn to secrecy.   Suffice to say it will be worth the wait.   Paula truly is one talented lady with what she came up with.

Over the weekend I managed to make a number of creations, one of which was created with the  Just add ink challenge in mind.  The challenge over there this week was "Just add blue" to mark Anxiety and Depression month.    So my focus on the weekend was blue.   I used it in a number of different ways but this card was the most simple but I think it is quite effective and just a little masculine as well, quite a difference from my usual girly bling cards.   Hope you like it.


  1. Lovely and simple Julie. Good for you entering your first JAI challenge! Hopefully, many more to come from you! Well done :-)
