It’s that time of the year again when I ask myself…

Oh WHY am I living on the SUNNY COAST???

We were so spoilt over the school holidays with overcast days almost EVERY day but alas, this week the clouds are only coming in at night leaving the skies bright and glaring all day. Which to the average person is simply delightful, but for me it’s a nightmare as all it does for me is bring on headaches and migraines. Not the best thing when you already know it’s less then 9 weeks to the Christmas school holidays… oh well, only another 230 days until winter. 🙁

I wonder how hard it would be to teach my body to work like that of a shift worker – to sleep during the day whilst the children are at school and the sun is at it’s brightest then come alive at night by the light of the silvery moon. The only down side would be Miss Seven would be with me every step of the way but hey, it’s food for thought!

So… given my slightly less then active day today I’ll show you two of the three Make and Takes we did at the Brisbane Regionals last month. Both these projects used the Every Moment stamp set. This is one of those sets that if it hadn’t been part of the registration package on the day I would NEVER had considered it but now that I have it, of course it’s a completely different matter! This is the first project…

Don’t you just love how the flowers come alive with the new Daffodil Delight Classic Ink and just the one small pearl jewel on each one? It’s so sweet with a smidge of Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon tied onto a wide clip. The card-stock believe it or not is Soft Suede but you’d never guess it having taken the photo at night, sorry. The second project is slightly different…

How cute is this and how simple. It’s the Fancy Favour box both bottom and top – the top simply has the bottom flaps cut off and placed over the box on the bottom as a lid. How easy is that, yet how effective?!

And guess what? It’s only 80 days ’til Christmas!!!

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

  1. Both of those are really pretty…but dont mention Christmas. I am definitely not ready. Last year I couldnt convince myself to do cards at all. I will have to do better this year.
