JAI 500 milestone blog hop - hello & thanks

It's time to celebrate a HUGE milestone at Just Add Ink - our 500th challenge. That's a lot of inspiration over the years so we're having a blog hop too!

Before we get started, I must thank our amazing past and current Just Add Ink Design Team members. I hope some of you will play along with this challenge to celebrate with us too.

You may have arrived from my JAI and SU teamie, the fabulous Jo Stubbings, or some other way. Welcome to our challenge:  :)

Follow the hop from my post or from the main Just Add Ink blog.

My aim for this challenge was to start on some paper hello's to send, since in-person hello's are not possible in light of the Covid19 nightmare.

I'm sharing my space with my working from home husband, so time is very tight. I made this mostly with some of the many leftover bits & pieces on my desk, mixed with some die cut Hand Lettered Prose dies cut in poppy parade card. I love playing around with them to create something new.

I also really loved the Little Ladybugs stamp set that was available during Sale-a-bration, so I built my card around some of my coloured pretties. You might remember them from these January 2020 Stamping Sisters tutorial project and extra bonus projects shared here.

This card will be going in the mail soon, hopefully followed by lots of others soon once my stamp space is back together after some room painting. I encourage you to send some paper hello's too, as they sure to add some light & love to someone's day.

Thanks again for visiting today and I hope you enjoy all the inspiration being shared by the Team. Next you're heading to Patrice Easton's blog where you're sure to find a beautiful project.

Happy stamping & inky wishes,
