I must have a fever…

as I’m in a complete eating frenzy at the moment and isn’t the saying “feed a fever“, so that’s what I must have… mustn’t I? And that’s MY story and I’m sticking to it (lol)! 🙂

I’m getting the feeling that I’m looking forward to these school holidays more then the children are. I can’t wait to NOT have to get out of bed and to NOT have to get out of my comfy flannies (although given the way the temperature appears to be rising each day I’m sure how much longer I’ll be able to tolerate my flannies…). I doubt if Miss Seven and Master Nine have such limited aspirations for these holidays but one can dream!

Once again I fell asleep on the keyboard last night before I could resize these pics for you of my “Cup a Soup Card” and post them. If I was being paid for each time I fell asleep on the keyboard of late I’d be quite the reach little lady… if only!

Anyways… this card came together for me after one or two of my friends returned from holidays quite sick with the flu. I wanted to send a card but knowing how ill they were it needed to be a little something more. As I was thinking out loud one of the children asked me why are you meant to eat soup when you’re sick? Good question, why? but it did get me thinking about soups and along came this card.

Nowstick with me on this one as there are three pics of this one card… this is the front of the card with the Greenhouse Gala DSP (no surprises there!).

Then inside I made little pockets on either side – placing the cup a soup on one side and a tag for writing on the other (I’ve taken the tag out in this photo for a reason that I can’t remember now).

This is the tag using the Morning Cup stamp set which I just adore. I particularly love how the set comes complete with even a stamp for the steam!

Joke of the day:

A potato wanted to become a newsreader but it didn’t work out.
She was just a common tater!


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

Monday-itis is alive and well…

Just what is it that allows you to sleep-in on a week day but not always on a week-end?! People joke it’s a student affliction but I can assure you it’s alive and well in the “very mature”. Just like last Monday I could have quite easily turned over and stayed in bed without any drama whatsoever but alas, there were things to be done that could only be done today… dang it!

Looking at the clock now I can’t believe where the day has disappeared to yet the really sad thing is all the cleaning I had planned to do this afternoon after collecting the children has yet to be ticked off my list. Now that really is a  BIG dang it. No prizes as to guessing what I’m doing first thing tomorrow morning… ugh!

So it’s kinda apt what I’m about to show you. It’s one of my little demonstration items for workshops… a Tea-Bag Holder.You could really use it for anything but I had tea-bags sitting on my desk so I used them.

This one all came about through that small piece of  Greenhouse Gala DSP on the front. It was on my desk one morning, along with scraps of the Tangerine card-stock, and after a little playing this was the end result. The arrival of the new stamp set “Morning Cup” from the new catty was perfect timing. I had the most wonderful idea of how to use the coffee pot today so I’d best go sketch it before I fall asleep so I can do it tomorrow.

Only four more sleeps to the school holidays… BRINGTHEMON!!!

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