When did the wrappings on cucumbers change?

And who made the decision to change the wrapping from cling film to cellophane without consulting me? What’s with that? Now instead of utilizing what’s already on there after you’ve cut it, you now have to add your own layer of cling film. What a waste. Obviously a males decision! 🙂

And you don’t have to tell me I already know what you’re going to say… I need to get out more… LOL! Apart from the grocery shop first thing this morning, nothing else on my list was achieved but nevertheless, it was still a good day. I feel my fog is lifting. Fingers-crossed!

There’s a good chance you are tilting your head right now asking yourself why this card looks familiar and that’s because I did something very similar with water-colouring not so long ago. This was the original card.  I was very eager to play with my Crumb Cake Classic Ink that had just arrived. It was ink at first sight – I just love the colour!

For this card the base is Baja Breeze with Crumb Cake bordering the Whisper White. I just love the Elements of Style stamp set. The bird is stamped in Riding Hood Red and sprinkled with dazzling diamonds. I have to say I also rather like the Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon. What’s NOT to love about Crumb Cake?!

My new colour kit has arrived…

and I have to say, I’m not disappointed as they are beautiful. Although I do tend to think something was lost in translation when it came to naming the colours as on the ink pad for Cherry Cobbler, in German I think it is,  it’s Chili. As for the Cajun Craze, once again it’s German I think, it’s called Terracotta, which describes them both perfectly. My apologies now should I use the international names mistakenly.

Anyways, I couldn’t wait to use the Crumb Cake (formally known as Kraft) ink pad as I so wanted to see what it looked like. To me it’s gorgeous, almost like a faded gold. I chose the largest stamp from the Elements of Style set to highlight the Crumb Cake. It did so beautifully… until I started water-colouring it. Sorry, I’ll endeavour to do a plain Crumb Cake tomorrow!

I’ve used the Cherry Cobbler card-stock and the Cherry Cobbler ink pad… love them!

That’s surprising considering what it did to her!
