And so another term begins…

And what better way to start the term then at McDonald’s for dinner on the first night back at school! Yes, what can I say but “Mother-of-the-Year” strikes again.

After such a wonderful week-end of Master Eight turning Nine, my parents joining us for a sleep-over to help celebrate such an auspicious occasion, and my husband surprising us with an additional night at home, well… what can I say? We just didn’t want the fun to end… and that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!

I can’t believe Term 3 has finally commenced – it doesn’t seem that long ago that the holidays actually commenced. Not that very much was accomplished on my “to-do” list. As I was tidying up the studio today I realised I should have set myself the task of doing just one little job everyday instead of loads of big ones but what’s that saying… hindsight is a wonderful thing!

BUT… one thing I did manage to achieve was my “Live, Love, Life, Laugh” wall hangings… oh yea me!!! Here ’tis…

Of course, looking at them now I feel I could tweak them a tad more but I’m more then happy with how they are now and you know what… apart from the square canvas for each, all other products were Stampin’ Up!  (and you know what’s really sad, initially I was afraid I’d mess up each canvas so made up a cardstock square to fit over the top of each one so…). Yup, this girl is slowly gettin’ there!

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

Flower Power…

Of all the photos I could of been posting, I’ve only just realised tonight that I’ve never posted the cards that were made in my “Technique Tuesday/Thursday” class back in the first week of May. Not sure how THAT happened but given how full speed life is at present, I guess it’s understandable in some ways. This is card #1… To You From Me


There was a slight change in my class in that instead of utilising two different punches – both the scallop and the five-petal punch – to make four different flower, only the one punch was used to make three flowers. After careful consideration I felt it better to put the time into making three fabulous flowers rather then racing the clock to tick the box on four flowers. This is card #2… For You

Don’t you just love the how the Medium Jewelry Tag from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue creates the delightful white picket fence?! I prefer calling this punch the “tiny tag” punch as this is what it is to me so if I ever mention a tiny tag punch I’m sure this is the one I’ll be referring to! It’s actually a white background but the bad lighting has it looking very similar to the Pale Plum I used on card #1.

And lucky last, card #3… Thank You for your Friendship

Unfortunately taking this photo at night has done NOTHING for the colours I’ve chosen. The background is Taken with Teal with the DSP being Urban Garden. After circling this pack for so long, now if anyone looked at my cards I’ve been making of late they would think this is the only pack of DSP I have!

And of course I couldn’t help myself by using the Big Shot’s Leaf Sizzlit with all three cards. What can I say – I love it – much like my alphabet sizzlet set but more of that another time! But as you can see, just the one punch and three beautiful flowers. I can’t decide which I like the best as they are all so effective. Miss Seven loves the rolled rose flower (card #2), whilst Master Eight leaned towards the scrunched flower (card #3). Guess that leaves me with card #1!!!

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