JAI 87

I don't know how long it has been since I last took part in a JAI Challenge, life has just got in the way.
Sorry girls, here's this weeks Colour Challenge.
 I love Calypso Coral it is my favourite 2011-2013 In Colour.
 Today is Mrs Elliot (teacher aid at Samuel's school) birthday.
I only found out this morning, so I came home and checked JAI and decided it was about time to cross of my list of must do cards.
The Spring or Diamond Fold Card has been on my list for a while now.
 I have 3 cards using this colour combo, Samuel chose the card above to give to Mrs Elliot, with her present of a bar of Caramello Chocolate and a tool caddy.
We visited her after we dropped the big kids of at youth group and ended up helping her eat her birthday cake, that Tammie (another parent from school) had made for her.
It was very yummy Tammie, Thanks.
 I have used the Double Embossing Technique again.
 I have used 'Tiny Tags and On Your Birthday' Stamp Sets.
I love these bows they are so easy to do, it's the way you fold the ribbon then you place a brad around it and like magic you have a bow.
Have a fantastic weekend.
