Cards for Christchurch

It's been a terrible twenty four hours for Christchurch, New Zealand with a 6.3 Earthquake that has flattened the city and caused tremendous loss of life, hundreds of people are injured ... some severely, people have lost homes, possessions and some have no way of contacting their loved ones.
Our heart and prayers go out to those people affected. We hope and pray that there will be more survivors. Know that we want to help in any way possible.

The whole Design Team (some who have family and friends in Christchurch) want to do something and this is what we have come up with...

Victim Support are a group affiliated with the NZ police force and are trained in dealing everyday with adversity, helping and supporting people in need.
We thought they would appreciate some cards that they could write in and to take to victims of this devastating quake.
If you would like to do the same then you can send a home made card (blank inside with envelope if possible) to -

Victim Support
PO Box 2109
New Zealand

Thinking of you, get well soon, with sympathy or just a plain blank card would be appreciated.

Kia Kaha Christchurch we are all thinking of you.

Just Add Ink # 56 - Sketch Challenge

Hi Inkers!

We were completely blown away not only by the amount of entries we had last week but the sheer talent you all shared. Needless to say, we put Hallmark to shame! heehee.

Amanda has put a sketch together for you this week - it can be converted into a scrapbook page, or use it on a card, either way we are excited about seeing what you create for us this week at Just Add Ink!

Here's the sketch..

We love sketches ..and obviously all of the Design Team loved playing with this sketch too's what they came up with.

So we hope you will love what we've done and play along with us this week.

Thanks for playing along with us this week!

Just Add Ink 55 - Just Add Love

Hi Inkers!

Before we get into this weeks awesome challenge we have a very special announcement to make!

There's no easy way to say this - it's sad and exciting at the same time (for me and Danielle, anyway) but we hope you are happy for us and understand how we've arrived at making this decision.

Danielle and I have decided it's time to step down from our baby, Just Add Ink as of the end of February.  Just Add Ink has been our baby for the past year and saying we're thrilled at how much you all enjoy it is an understatement. It wasn't an easy decision but we were both certain we wanted to start together and finish up together.

To all the wonderful Just Add Inkers - the girls that play every week or every now and then, you guys rock! Just Add Ink  wouldn't be what it is today without your amazing submissions, kind comments and lovely emails! We'll miss you, but we'll still be around (and most probably playing along with you from time to time).

And the exciting part?? We're very happy to announce that Delys Cram and Bronwyn Eastley have agreed to carry on hosting Just Add Ink, bringing you more inspiration with each challenge. A big change - but I'm sure you'll love what they have in store for you!

Now on with the fun... this weeks challenge is 
It's Valentine's Day on the 14th of Feb, don't forget to make something sweet
for that special person in your life...

Here's what our amazing design team came up with this week...
