Trees for JAI #341

Happy Friday to you and welcome! This week has simply flown. We are still struggling with no home phone or internet despite many phone calls to the local hopefully the fault will all be sorted out soon as it's been two weeks now and it's too long already.

Much happier news though is the new challenge at Just Add Ink this week. Kim has suggested a beautiful colour challenge for us all to use and it works so well for Christmas and all the last minute parcels and cards you may have to decorate. The lovely design team have all made wonderful creations to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look.

Here are the colours:

And here is my card:

The first idea that came to mind was to create Old Olive trees and the rest came from there. I've used trees from Santa's Sleigh and am wondering if the central tree is a little high but is a bit late now. For the background and to add details to the tree, I simply flicked on some Clear Wink of Stella to add a subtle Silver wink :-)

Card stock: Basic Grey, Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink: Old Olive, Versamark
Stamps: Santa's Sleigh, Christmas Pines
Accessories: Santa's Sleigh Framelits, White EP, Clear Wink of Stella, Basic Rhinestones, Silver Metallic Thread

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see the wonderful cards the team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create for this fun challenge too.

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Those lovely trees make a great feature on your card, Jan. Great balance of colour, and the blingy touches are perfect!

  2. Beautiful layout and a gorgeous card! Two weeks without internet? I hope you get it back soon!
