Sprinkles of Life JAI #290

It's Friday and the week has really flown by!! There has been some very hot weather, and some very cold….visiting family from Queensland and thankfully, Sally is now back on all 4 legs and doing all she should. The veggie garden is also doing really well - the first of the cucumber are nearly ready and the tomatoes won't be long behind them  :-)

And Friday means it's time for a brand new challenge at Just Add Ink. And this week it's a colour challenge suggested by me! The lovely ladies that make up our fabulous Team have created really beautiful projects to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and have a look.

Here are the colours:

Yes - rather bright, bold and beautiful don't you think :-)

Here is my card:

For my card I started by choosing a stamp set - this time the fun Sprinkles of Life that has been sitting quietly on the shelf for way too long. It has so many images and greetings to choose from and already I can see this card being made again - with apples or cherries instead of flowers :-) The greeting thinlits add another layer of texture and height -and are on dimensionals too. The "Thanks" on the actual stamp was masked using a Post It note so as to only stamp the last two words.

Card stock: Whisper White (Thick and standard), Sahara Sand, Watermelon Wonder
Designer Series Paper: Regals Stack
Inks: Garden Green, Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry
Stamps: Sprinkles of Life
Accessories: Big Shot, Greetings Thinlits, Large Polka Dot EF, Tree Builder Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Hello Honey Twine (Retired)
Non SU: Dynamics Stitched Circle Dies (My Favourite Things)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment and pop over to Just Add Ink and see all the wonderful creations the  Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will make with these bright and cheery colours this week!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. I love your card for this week's challenge Jan, that little cupcake is adorable!

  2. Love this card Jan. I love your balance of the colours - so bright but still fresh and those little flowers colour pops in the basket - so cute!! Really glad to hear Sally is going so well too! xxx

  3. Gorgeous card, Jan! A basket full of flowers are always beautiful & cheerful & the combination of colours make this a delightful card- Katerina

  4. Jan your choice of colours really pushed me this week but you've used them like a pro - such a sweet card! It's good to hear Sally is up and about.
