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

The Lucky Last!

Oh my gosh… talk about being on auto pilot… I’ve been awake since 3.30 this morning so now I keep falling asleep as I sit here attempting to write this so goodness knows if I’m going to make any sense but here ’tis, my last three colours on the Colour Renovation Chart.

Actually here are six of the retiring colours and DSP’s that I’ve used for Term 3’s thank you gifts for the teachers and the lovely ladies at the school office as I like them to know how much I appreciate their hard work each term. Beside the colours I’m highlighting below I’ve also used Barely Banana, Really Rust and Apricot Appeal.

These came about as I really wanted to make some notelets with the Big Shot Scallop Circle Die Cut but to simply put them into a box didn’t seem right so I made up a template of a hand-bag that would hold them. I made four notelets for each bag – two each of two designs. (And I’ve used one of the new punches from the 2010-2011 catty – can you spot it?)

Okay… here is  Fond Farewell to Colour #28 – Blush Blossom.

Here is a Fond Farewell to Colour #29 – Pale Plum.

Here is a Fond Farewell to Colour #30 – Orchid Opulence.

I’m really happy with how they turned out but I’ve dozed off so many times now I’m signing off as the alarm is already set for 4.30am as I need to make a dozen or two cupcakes before school tomorrow. Yes, seemed like a really good idea last week when I planned to make them then and there then put them into the freezer so I would be organised. As I’ve said before, just call me FOGI!

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