Well I did manage to get into my craft room (yes I have my own room now, that's what happens when one of your darling children leave home) and made a card for my brother and his family who live in Christchurch. Luckily they live in an area which wasn't badly affected by the earthquake.
I also decided to enter this card into two challenges this week the Just Add Ink colour combo and the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch challenge.
The colour combo for us to use was Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and River Rock but I don't have River Rock so I have used Crumb Cake instead as my card base. I have then used Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight card stock and Very Vanilla Ribbon. The stamp set is one I hadn't inked up before called It's the Thought which is a level one Hostess set from the Summer Mini available until the end of March. I coloured in the flowers and vase with markers and blender pens and added some Rhinestones and a little pearl. I also sponged the edges with some Daffodil Delight ink.
