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

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?!
