Just Add Ink #30 Helping Hudson Challenge





Over at Just Add Ink they are running a really cool challenge this week. It's to co inside with the Helping Hudson Appeal which is a fundraiser for a wee 2 year old boy called Hudson who has a raft of medical issues. The idea is to raise funds for a posh set of wheels to help Hudson get around on his own. They are selling bundles of craft tutorials which many Stampin' Up! demos have donated - including me! It's a great opportunity so pop over to their sites and see what you can do to help.
So the JAI#30 challenge is "wheels" so you can use anything either with wheels on it, or made using wheels which is what I did. I used the Classic Star Jumbo Wheel on both cards. These cards both have the an insert in it which holds a gift card. I made these masculine as it's coming up to Fathers Day here in New Zealand. Also these cards are one of two masculine projects that we are doing at Wednesday's class this week.
I started with a Kraft base - this colour is being renamed to Crumb Cake which is going to take a while to get used to calling it! I love how Old Olive looks with it. The stamp set I used for the salutation is from the set Greetings Eight which is currently on sale for $29.90 (that's 50% off!!) as it's retiring at the end of August. SO contact me today if you would like to order this cool set - you would hate to miss out!
The other card has a Bashful Blue base and Riding Hood Red accents. The small star punch is also retiring so it's another thing to you need me to order for you today!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
