Birthday Plants for JAI #698


It's Friday and schools are back from holidays here in Victoria. That doesn't effect me except that the Riding For the Disabled classes that I attend only happen during Term time. So it was a happy reunion with the lovely Harley (the horse) for me this week. I hope that you have had a lovely week are ready to craft too!

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink  is a fun one - Choose Two out of Leaves, Flowers or Pots and it was suggested by me so I hope that you enjoy it!!
 There are so many fun options of all three that most of us have in our crafty stash and I hope that you enjoy looking through your options to make something for this challenge. The design team had fun with this and I hope that you do too!

My cards are always created with a recipient in mind - especially these days as I am finding my fingers are much less responsive than they used to be and I can't make the volume of cards that I have done in the past. I still enjoy it, it just takes much more time and effort but is stil worth it for now.
So this card is made for a friend who loves her indoor plants - we have often chatted about care and propagation techniques and plants that we love... it makes for a change from when we chat puppies!😀

Sadly the Plentiful Plants stamp set has retired but I held onto it and the DSP,  for just such a friend and indeed, JAI Challenge! There is something else I must say about this card - this is the first time in over 15 years as a SU Demo that I have used Cajun Craze ink! In reality, it's not as bad as I thought and even suits this card quite well! Who knows, I might use it again in another 15 years or so!!😀

I do like that the leaves of these plants appear to have movement. It adds to the "real" look of the plants. As usual there is a liberal scattering of sequins which in real life, catch the light and add small touches of girly sparkle!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Choose Two of Leaves, Flowers or and Pots.  And I hope that you can pop on over to Just Add Ink and choose your Two elements as I look forward to seeing what you create!

Card stock: Cajun Craze!!! (not something I usually use at all but it went with the pot colours). Basic White.

Here is Harley. He loves a snuggle and is licking my hand after I gave him his post-ride carrots and a small piece of his favourite treat, licorice. If anyone else would like SU to do more HORSE stamps then please let them know. Thank you!

'Til next time,
