Just Add Ink #147

This week at Just Add Ink the theme is "Just Add Balloons", and I immediately thought of the "Up, Up and Away" set from Stampin' Up.  It's a pretty straightforward card with Red, Blue, Black and White, a bit of patterned paper, some embossing, and of course, some stamping.  

After having some dramas with my workspace lamp and getting replacement bulbs for it, I bought one of these Naturalight Hobby Lamps from Officeworks this morning and it's amazing.  I thought the lamp I had was pretty good, but this baby lights up my work space so beautifully.

If you are a crafter you will appreciate how important great lighting is, and I am so glad I decided to invest in a new lamp!


  1. Love your crisp colours Louise, a great card and it fits the challenge perfectly!

    Liking the look of your new lamp. I'm in need of another and will definitely check this one out. Can I ask how much it was?

    1. From memory Patrice, it was about $80 and worth every cent :-)

  4. Oh I love this fun and colourful card!!!

    I think the twine pulls it all together.
