Fond Farewell… Colour #7…

Fond Farewell… Colour #7…

Oh good grief… what is it with males and dinner time? My darling husband has been sitting here on the couch with me for the last half an hour…  watching all the while whilst I’ve been getting dinner ready and now that it is ready… HELLO, where is everybody? He best not ever accuse ME of doing this ever again!

Every time I sneaked yet another taste of my fabulous Red Curry Beef and Pumpkin curry he certainly noticed. He was watching like a hawk when I started the rice doing the absorption method (I don’t deny I have experienced the odd failure with rice). And when I licked the spoon after doing the Coriander & Mint Yogurt he was watching… but NOW? I could scream… But let’s face it, we could ponder this question until the end of time and still be none the wiser so I’ll move on, gnashing my teeth all the while.

Today I’ll be short and sweet, just like my example of the Fond Farewell to Colour #7 – Cameo Coral. I mean no offence to anyone but this is one of the few colours I just could NOT connect with. I don’t know why but just the mere mention of it could send me running and judging by the fact this is all I could find with this colour I must have given it away. (I hope so as I’ll be distraught if I find in the coming months piles of stashed away somewhere!) Hence there’s not a lot of it on this card. I’ve used it for the Twirled Flowers with a smidge of dazzling diamonds of course!

Along with these flowers, my favourite part of this card I have to admit is the white picket fence. All it is is the tiny tag punch out of Stampin’ Up’s! latest mini (but I can tell you, it’ll be in the new catologue also!).

I thought I may leave you with a joke today…

Why did the sea monster eat five ships that were carrying potatoes?
No one can eat just one potato ship!

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

Flower Power…

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!
