Just Add Ink #56 sketch

I know I have already posted today but I have been crafting today(to keep my mind off the destruction in Christchurch!) and decided to join in with this weeks Just Add Ink's sketch challenge which finishes tonight!.

So here is my card - I made it for my son who (finally) passed his Learners Licence the other day. I have had the cool set 'To a Classic" for a while and haven't had a event to use it for but thought it was perfect for him. I used my lovely markers (again) to colour-in and to be able to use only parts of the main stamp.
Of cause I used the awesome Top Note Stampin' Up! Big Shot die and embossed it with the lattice embossing folder. The colours are Basic Grey, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie which I got from the cool Colour Coach that I mentioned yesterday.

Don't forget that there are now a few ways the we as a Stampin' Community can help those affected in Christchurch. Firstly they need money so donate on line or thru banks - we as a family chose the Red Cross Appeal . Secondly you can join in the card appeal that the team at Just-Add-Ink are organising where you send blank cards to Victim Support, PO Box 2109, Christchurch, New Zealand and they can then use them to assist their work. We all know how wonderful it makes you feel when you receive a hand made card so imagine what the victims in the Christchurch and Canterbury area will feel during this - their darkest hours.


  1. What a great card for your son but the congratulations might wear a bit thin after a few hours in the car with him!!! (speaking from experience). Thanks for joining in the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink.

  2. love your card Julia. Must get that set as mine is painfully trying to get his restricted...
