Getting closer every day…

Getting closer every day…

You just know what kind of day you’re going to have when you have 4 Tim Tam Crunches and a can of Coke for breakfast… there was nothing I could do it, I just HAD to have them.

In my defense though I shall say by 8am I had already done three loads of washing – of those dried and folded two, made 4 purses with 4 matching notelets for each, tidied the studio, found Master Nine’s missing school shirt; as well as the usual watering and feeding of the children and getting them to school almost on time complete with lunches.

School lunches just do my head in ’cause as soon as you think you have it all sorted… tastes change and nothing you put in those darn little bags is like anymore… aahhhhh!!! Although I am looking forward to tomorrow as it’s a sausage sizzle so there is half the pressure off me. Then for the rest of the week we have leftover pizza from Tight Wad Tuesday… a sliver of silver lining for me!

Anyways, before I get back into it let’s bid a Fond Farewell to Colour #27 – Lovely Lilac. This is another of those colours I would never have declared as a favourite but I did tend to use it a lot in layering as it goes so beautifully with the Elegant Eggplant. On saying that then I guess I’d best order some before it’s “off the shelves“.

 Just over 24 hours left of retiring products so please don’t delay if you’d like me to order anything – call me now!

Joke of the day:

What did the lion say when he saw two rabbits on a skateboard?
Meals on Wheels!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

And then there were two…

And then there were two…

Although we all went for a sleep-over with the grandparent just for last night, it was only the girls who returned home this afternoon. Master Nine felt the need for chess match – the fact neither he nor anyone close to him can play doesn’t bother him – he simply enjoys the “aura” of chess. I do think though when we have our next visit to the local library we may just have to see if there’s an “Idiot’s Guide to Chess” so we can get even a basic comprehension of the game!

And in typical sleep-over fashion, Girl Child and I stayed up until midnight, sitting in the dark, wrapped in fluffy blankets, watching chick flicks whilst eating left-over KFC… well, the raspberry bullets were finished and we couldn’t find the French Fries! When we finally went to bed, Miss Seven was  asleep instantly whereas I on the other hand was wide awake. Not that it was a drama as I am still clutching my new catalogue close to my chest so I simply rewrote my Wish List until the wee hours.

This has however left me feeling as if I’m ready for bed now so I shall quickly bid a Fond Farewell to Colour #26 – Mellow Moss. This card also highlights one of my favourite stamp sets, Vintage Vogue, from the Autumn-Winter catty which I’m so pleased to say has made it’s way to the BIG catty – oh the joy, oh the relief!

Joke of the Day:

What’s yellow, brown and hairy?
Cheese on toast, dropped on the carpet…

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Dang Cat!

Dang Cat!

Fergus, our cheeky fur-ball, has a tendency of starting up the printer or scanner whilst on his way to the window to obtain the best vantage point of the front garden. It’s not unusual to see numerous blank pieces of paper sitting in the out tray after one of his ventures.

But in this instance his nimble claws published this picture without as much as a  how do you do… and I’m not even going to mention that he’s now sitting on my chest as I’m typing this… dang cat! What Fergus failed to mention was that this was June’s Off-the-Page class…

This month was going to be a mini scrapbook but once I saw this wonderful card holder designed by the very talented Christine Healey (SUD) I instantly knew that this would be something that could be used many times over as this folder holds three cards and envelopes comfortably. Just perfect as a gift!

For this set I used the Cottage Wall DSP and the Vintage Vogue stamp set and Very Vintage Wheel. All these are available in the current Autumn-Winter Catalogue. Don’t hesitate to contact me inkeefiddlings@gmail.com or 07 5309 6364 – should you require any further information or would like to place an order for any of the products used, or heck, if you simply what to purchase the finished product itself!

And don’t forget, you don’t need to be local to place an order with me as orders can be delivered directly to your door  anywhere within Australia – how good is that!

As I said earlier, this card folder with three cards makes a wonderful gift. Here are a few I made for my recent trip to the Perth, what do you think?

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

VINTAGE VOGUE!

Yes I know, I know… I’ve shown off the Vintage Vogue stamp set before as I said earlier this week, I had a hostess request a “Make and Take” with this set to get some ideas as to what she’ll do with hers – no worries I said. And as I knew  this lovely lady also had some of the Cottage Wall DSP it really wasn’t difficult to design something for her! Also, for a change of direction, I chose to make this card as a 6″x6″. This is what we made…


Plus I won’t deny I had recently viewed a card by the creative Susan Joyce which really tweaked my interest so was able to combine the two… BONUS! Of course it wasn’t until I was collating the kits that I realised that by using the DSP as a background on the 6″x6″ I would only be able to do eight cards MAXIMUM with this particular DSP… DOH! So this is what I did as Plan B… (which was lucky as we had two very late attendees to the workshop that needed to do these cards… phew!)

Anywho, on the Rich Razzleberry card base, I stamped with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink the leaf stamp from the Vintage Vogue set around the outer edges on the front of the card to create some interest as a background as opposed to a plain background. On the bottom left-hand corner I used the Double Rectangle Punch for threading the ribbon through. It makes ALL the difference, I can’t recommend it enough!


However, I couldn’t stop there could I? As I cut down the Kraft (soon to be renamed Crumb Cake) card-stock I had some substantial off-cuts, the same with the Cottage Wall DSP so wanted to give an example as to how everything has as a use, be it intentionally or not. I think you’d have to agree with me that unless you knew better, you wouldn’t guess the above card was basically made with left-overs!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
