I Love Ikea..


Happy Sunday.

Today I am loafing around mostly watching NFL games with Hubby.

When I was in London recently I went to Ikea with my Ma. They had a sale on their stationery (drool..) and so it seemed rude not to buy a few things...

I bought a couple of blank card and envelope sets. Imagine my delight when I got home to find the notecard is watercolour paper - yay!

I wanted to make a nice card for a friend's Mum who is not very well, but I wanted it to be less 'get well soon' and more 'you got this'. So this saying is actually a bible version out of my accident bible version colouring book purchase!

I traced the verse onto the card using my amazing lightbox and I added some flowers and hearts and watercoloured it. Super pleased with the end result and it also meant I had x2 days colouring for the 30 day challenge. Win win.

The envelopes are super fun, this one has random leopards on it! I added a blank panel for the address.

I love Ikea!



  1. Oooh, Claire, this is fabulous! Brilliant idea to trace your design using a light box (why don't I remember to use mine???) and the message is awesome. I'm sure your friend's mum will love this!

  2. Brilliant card, love the vibrancy. I never think to look at the stationery at IKEA, think I'm just desperate to get out of there by that point! Have a great week x
