Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Blog Hop. This month we are sharing projects featuring our favourite colour combo. You may have arrived here from my super talented friend Jenny if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the full line up below will guide you through all the projects.   It's no secret ... Pool Party is my favourite colour, add a little Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist to complete my favourite colour combination.   I love the Pool Party patterned paper in the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper Pack and the fact that it's a free Sale-A-Bration item is even better!   I've also teamed it with a piece of black and white spotted paper from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper Pack, also a free Sale-A-Bration item!   The bouquet of flowers are from the Needle & Thread Stamp Set and are stamped in Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist.

I love these gear cogs, especially in silver, as it makes them look like they're alloy! And these Classic Garage Metal Elements are adorable - I love anything in miniature! And what guy doesn't like a little sweet treat too? I filled this little Clear Tiny Treat Box with jellybeans in

Doilies remind me of my Nana. She used to set the table beautifully especially for high tea on a Sunday and a doily was always tucked underneath a delicious chocolate cake! These doilies from the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies are simply elegant and the delicate sprig of flowers from the Dear Doily Stamp Set are perfect with them. The background Whisper White cardstock has been embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The sentiments, both stamped and die cut, are from the Well Said Bundle. It's one of those "must have" sets! The bow on this card was created by water colouring a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Melon Mambo ink and then die cutting it. Water colouring it gave a softer effect.   The die cut sentiments have been cut several times to create height and I've used Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to do this. It is must quicker and easier than gluing them. I've also used three black
