Just Add "W" JAI #286

This week has been pretty busy as Sally the Lab had surgery for a dislocating knee. She is doing really well and walking/limping out for essentials better than expected with a just a little support needed through her harness. But it will be 6-8 weeks before X-rays reveal if the very strict exercise restrictions can be lifted. Fingers crossed :-)

 And it's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week we have a brand new type of challenge for you! Tina has suggested we "Just Add W" so that is anything to do with the letter "w". It could be a technique or a concept or different elements including stamps and accessories - anything that you can think of! The Team have all come up with brilliant ideas to inspire your creativity so I hope you can take a moment and pop on over and take a look!

For my card I decided to go with Winter - and the Winter Wonderland DSP to be specific - as well as the lovely Wooden element :-) So you see this fun challenge is quite open to interpretation and there are so many options!
I've used the Sleigh Ride Edgelits with both white and gold card some other gold accessories for this night time Christmas card. And you may be able to see that I've added a little bit of gold foil behind all the windows too :-)

Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper white (thick), Gold Foil
Designer Series Paper: Winter Wonderland
Ink: Tuxedo Momento Black
Stamps: Jingle All The Way
Accessories: Big Shot, Sleigh Ride Edgelits, Snowflake Elements, Gold Cord Trim, Metallic Sequin Assortment.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop over to Just Add Ink and see the wonderful ways ( yes, puns intended lol ) the Team have used "w" in their creations and I really look forward to seeing what you will choose this week!

In the meantime here is a fun little plaque that was given to me by a friend the day that Sally came home from the vet -very appropriate it seemed too!

Even if "runs the house" is from her bed at the moment :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
