It’s about this time of the year I start getting Snowflake Fatigue! The timing of this week’s Just Add Ink challenge is perfect!
Everything in this picture says Australian Christmas to me from the colours to the gum leaves!
You can use any element or theme of the inspiration picture to spur your creativity. Upload your project to our blog to share with everyone.
You can also see the fabulous Just Add Ink team projects on the blog.
My card is inspired by an Australian Bush Christmas theme….
Apart from the sentiment, all the elements are from the non-Christmas product range. There’s no such thing as ‘just a birthday set’.
The wreath is from Hello Friend, the gumnuts are from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous and the Wood Textures DSP is part of the everyday DSP range.
The floral elements from the Christmas set – Merry Mistletoe – even work well for a quick spruce of the inside….
I’m sure there isn’t a child who attended Kindy in Australia that doesn’t remember spray painting gumnuts silver or gold to make Christmas decorations! I wonder if they still do that?
I’m not sure if the availability of Pinterest has made Kindy teaching easier or harder? I take my hat off to all teachers – it’s a rollercoaster of a job! An hour in a classroom and I’m exhausted!
Thanks for joining me today! Hopefully your Christmas card creating is going well. I have much more ambition than time, so there’s a chance I’ll be extending the Christmas spirit through til January. Or maybe Feb!!!
