Inkspirational #159

Hello There

First off I wanted to apologise for not visiting your blogs or Instagram accounts for a while. I have been poorly for a few weeks and am still recovering. Had to cancel a holiday to New York for my husband's 50th Birthday, made even more disappointing as I had plans to meet 6 crafty friends. I have a number of posts already scheduled....I always plan ahead as my health does have a tendency to play up without warning!. So my blog hasn't and won't be completely empty...although IG isn't get any action from me! I am hoping to visit you all soon and bet I have missed a whole lot of crafty goodness!

Time for a new 'word prompt' challenge at Inkspirational and the word is:


And I created this:

I was thinking that we all like to craft and that is our 'playtime!'
The sentiment is from The Ton. This design looks really simple but did take me a while to decide how to put it all together. However that embossed, shiny and purple card and purple stars were all pressies from crafting packs I got from my blogging friends on my Birthday last year-yes girls....they are still being used!!

In the end I was really pleased with how it turned out.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Sarah. I am sure many of you know Sarah and her amazing blog, Sazzle Dazzle. She is an inspiring CAS designer who I have admired for so many years now. I have got to know her through different Design Teams we have been on together. We have a lot of laughs together!

Check out what Sarah and the DT have made here and then get inky!


  1. Yes you do make things - beautiful things like this stylish card! Just emailed you too....

    Your card is super CAS and I love the shapes! Hugs, Gerrina

  4. Awesome design Sandie. This is perfect for the the word prompt! Sorry to hear you haven't been well. Take care. xx

  5. Oh my, Sandie! I didn't realize you had to cancel your trip! Fingers tightly crossed that you'll be able to reschedule once you're feeling better. BIG hugs and positive energy coming your way. Your card: only awesome! Yes, we crafters quite enjoy 'playing', don't we!

  6. You can always add 'fabulous' to that sentiment, Sandie ... you certainly do ... this one is a case in point! So good to see you picking up a little ... hugs & prayers, Anita :)
