My Miss Milly…

Although I had quite GRAND plans for getting into my studio these school holidays it just hasn’t happened BUT… I can say that my house is the cleanest and tidiest it’s been since the day BEFORE we moved in.We have a couple of extra “small fry” for the next few nights so for whatever reason I felt in imperative that I dust, vacuum, wash, and scrub EVERYTHING!

As was pointed out to me by another this afternoon after advising them of my day, “you know… 8 and 10 year olds don’t really notice those kinds of things“…. I know, but I knew they were excited about coming over so felt it necessary to make an effort and besides, it made me feel good. And how good will I feel in the morning when I get up and now have only a stereo to re-home… (cleaning always involves some sort of moving for me unfortunately…)

But just because I haven’t been able to create, that hasn’t stopped my Darling Miss Milly… she might be only seven but she does like to get her daily dose of creating and this card highlights the way she’s producing her cards just at the moment… very balanced. Plus, she really should be commended on her use of Stampin’ Up! products without influence or prejudice!!!


I love how she’s placed the pink ribbon horizontally across the card then rolled it over then used double sided tape to keep the height. She saw this on a card of mine last week – whereas my ribbon had wire on the edges Miss Milly couldn’t find any so this was her solution. Gotta love the way she thinks! Now I wonder where she gets THAT from???

Conditions are looking perfect…

it’s a long week-end, hubby is home and keen for some one-on-one time with the children, and the pumpkin soup is simmering on the stove-top… so yep… conditions are perfect to pop George into the DVD player, plug the lap-top in beside the bed, fill the coffee pot up… and blog. Actually, one could say the conditions are idyllic in fact!

Well, yesterday was a big day… given it was the last day of April I thought it well and truly time to give the children’s teachers and the lovely ladies in the school office their Easter gifts. Yes, yes, I know, Easter was more then a few weeks ago but with one thing and another (read – one child with ear infection, another with chest infection, and DON’T get me started on the cats as that’s an entirely different story!), sadly time has slipped away from me.

I’m trying to make the most of the Retiring Colours from Stampin’ Up! before they leave us August 31. I know change is always good, eventually, but I can’t deny that I will miss some colours, especially Ruby Red and Almost Amethyst. Like so many things in life I didn’t know how much I liked them until I heard they were retiring hence I may just have to start stocking up on them. Don’t forget to let me know if you would like me to add some of the retiring card stock to my order for you. But enough rambling, here ’tis…

All products are Stampin’ Up! with the exception of the organza ribbon and obviously the Ferrerro Rocher’s of course! The Card Stock colours I’ve chosen for these shoes were (back to front) Cameo Coral, Barely Banana, Lovely Lilac, Pale Plum, Sage Shadow, and Almost Amethyst (which looks much bluer in this photo for some reason). On each of these I’ve simply used my Illuminated Wheel on the diagonal along with the corresponding Ink Pad. With the left-over card stock I’ve made the flowers on the front, fastened with a large rhinestone brad from the Pretties Kit.

Judging by the reactions of the recipients, and those visiting¬† my Inkee Fiddlings Studio prior to yesterday, the lateness was irrelevant… my gosh, I’ve even had requests for classes on them so watch this space. Sadly I can’t take all the credit for these as I CASEd the shoe from the lovely Tracey – thank you – and have tweaked it every so slightly. Works well don’t you think?
