Sneak Peek - JAI55

Just wanted to pop in and say hello!! I've been doing some other crafting at the moment (crochet and sewing) but wanted to show the Valentine's Card I have made for my husband!!  For my regular readers, you'll remember that my WH only likes cards that are not girly, no ribbon, no embellishments.  Just plain and simple!!

This week we had our team - Avid Inkers Social Meeting and we gave ourselves a colour challenge this time.  Chocolate Cherry Crumb Cake!  Now doesn't that sound like the most divine dessert colour combination ever!!  Yummo!

So, I was thinking these colours would make a perfect card for my husband.  Nothing outlandish there!!  So I did!

The colour combo:

My creation:

Very simple but so cute (well I think so anyway).  Although now that I see the photo staring right at me, maybe I could have done something more!!  I will confess (however) that I added one more colour to the mix - a touch of soft suede for the sponging of my hearts!!

Here's what I used:

Stamps: French Script
Papers: Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake
Inks: Soft Suede
Other: Mat Pack, Full Heart Punch, Sponge Daubers & Stampin' Dimensionals

So this is why I'm submitting this card to the Just Add Ink Challenge - 55, Just Add Love.  I made this card with love for my husband.♥ ♥ ♥

But sshhh..... it's a sneak peek to you and not my WH.  He has to wait a few more days!


  1. This is a great card, Carolyn; I love it, and am sure hubby will too!

  2. A simple, but GORGEOUS card Carolyn. It is a good lesson for us all to get back to basics once in a while. You have nailed it! Thanks for playing at JAI

  3. Thank you ladies for all your lovely comments!
