I have to ask the question…

Do ALL children sit up crossed-legged on their beds in the middle of the night? Cause my two certainly do – it’s hilarious! And what’s really funny tonight is that I have both my girls, that is Miss Seven and the Fur Ball, on the bed with me and even though both are asleep, they are both doing exactly the same things at the same time!

Initially they were both curled up in balls, then one uncurled and began stretching so then the other began doing the same, both arching their back in their sleep, then back into ball they went before Miss Seven sat up crossed-legged, looking around. I always love how  she looks around yet her eyes never open. It’s quite comical! Anyways

A couple of weeks ago I saw this card on the web and was very keen to CASE it so when the challenge was cast  just a few days later for a sympathy card I seized the moment and this was what I came up with. I thought I was being clever by scanning it but I can see now I wasn’t that clever at all. Anyways

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

  1. Why thank you mam! I did forget to add “DSP” to Newsprint but anywho…

    I cut a 1-1/2″ x 12″ strip of newsprint DSP, then punched along the top with the Eyelet Border Punch. Holding the left hand bottom corner I gently pulled/folded the paper in on itself to create the rosette effect – cutting any length off you feel is excess. I then pierced a hole through the entirity to fill with the that GORGEOUS antique brad (what can I say, no home is complete without a set!) supported with a flower stamped in Black StazOn from the Punch Potpourri Hostess Set then punched with the co-ordinating BoHo Blossoms. Once assembled, using my thumb, I gently curled the edges up to create a slightly softer effect…

    Now I’m off to do a spot of correcting… yikes!
