Hello and happy Friday to you! This week has been full of early mornings and busy days - by this time next week we will have just spent our first night in our new home! Goodness, where has the time gone? Today we spent a little time in the new garden, giving it a tidy to get it veggie ready whilst waiting for a delivery....some might say it was an excuse to get away from packing and enjoy the sunshine and they wouldn't be wrong :-)
Also ready to be enjoyed is the new challenge at Just Add Ink this week. Tina has suggested a letter challenge that is sure to be popular.....to Just Add ...."G".so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and see the fabulous cards our lovely Team have made to inspire you and we also have another announcement that you won't want to miss!
For my "G" elements, I went with goal posts, grass and geometric shapes to create this rugby themed slider card for my brother's birthday. Our family are all rather passionate All Black rugby supporters - the national past time of New Zealand for sure :-) So a goal kicking slider card will hopefully appeal to my fabulous brother - and the rest of his young family can play with it too :-)
To create the slider track, I used the Shooting Star Framelits and there is a video tutorial by Stampin Up showing how to use them you can see here. I created the goal posts out of strips of card stock and rounded the edges using a small circle punch. The rugby ball is made using circle framelits and the 13/4 circle punch andfaux stitching details are added with a White Gel Pen. Then, it's mounted using Dimensionals with their edges snipped and placed between eyelits. Using your Embossing buddy both on the sides of all things sticky, as well as the slider track will help it slide better.
