Splash of Color for Inkspirational

Hi Everyone.

Firstly, a very Happy New Year to all of you.  Lou and I hope that 2018 brings you all the wonderful things you wish for you and your loved ones.  Thank you for all of your support during 2017 - it has been very much appreciated :-)

I saw this great challenge across at Inkspirational and it really made me think :-)  

 
Now, it has been a looooong while since I just stamped and didn't use dies or some such thing.  I decided it was a perfect opportunity to make a one layer card and it was a great chance to make a card for Lou to thank him for our fabulous trip to the Caribbean.  I also decided it was the perfect time for a little color - especially as our part of the world is so brown and white - with no color at all :-) 
 
I used a stamp set from Altenew called "Splash of Color" and used three of the splash stamps and made a little rainbow of splashes and clustered them around the sentiment.
 
Here's my card:
 
Inkspirational (1 of 1)-2
The colors reminded me of the Caribbean where the Islands are full of beautiful flowers and bright sunshine with turquoise waters.  I hope this card brings a little bit of color to your evening.
 
On a personal note:
 
Well... I spent some time in my craft room yesterday - and today...and made 8 cards in total.  That's 8 more in two days than I made in the previous two months!  It took some time to get back into the swing of things and I must admit that my arthritic hands certainly could feel that I had been crafting :-)   But... it did feel good to get down there and just do something!
 
I'll be back tomorrow with another card and a couple of snow shots for you.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight - and once again, all very best wishes for 2018.
 
Hugs
Jaydee
