Celebrate Today – not JUST balloons!

When playing with this set it was WAY too easy to use the balloon as simply a balloon, hence I challenged myself to come up with other ideas.

The first was rather obvious, using the balloon as the top of a baby’s rattle but it’s still kinda cute.

The second card came about quite as accident as I was also test-driving the Rose Coral ColorBox Chalk Ink and as I was looking at the die-cut balloon saw the beginnings of my next card.

Personally I REALLY like this second card; my children, not so much but hey, I didn’t make it for them… although I did have one of my son’s friends in mind, oh well!

End of semester already?!

Well… we ended this term the same way we started… SICK!

I couldn’t believe it as I had quite a few things on my list that required ticking off this week as I wanted to be “all clear” for the school holidays, heck I even had  a lunch planned for today, but with the kidlets home since Wednesday not much has happened but the icing on the cake was waking up this morning and feeling as if the entire FLEET of buses had hit me. No No No… I have all my fingers and toes crossed that next term is ours!

Fortunately I had moved the TV into the lounge room yesterday. Yes, I know this is where most people keep their TVs but I have this aversion to a TV being the pivotal part of a lounge room. And yes,  I KNOW most of us spend more time watching TV there then anything else in there but I just don’t like it. However… with everything that was happening yesterday I didn’t want to miss a moment of it so out it came and we all agreed it should stay.

Anyways, it did make for a comfy day today as I set myself up in the corner of the lounge, complete with  my blanket, coffee pot and remote. Of course I couldn’t just sit could I and brought up my box of ribbons to start putting them all on separate cards and hang them in their colour families.

This is my days work… JUST the pink ribbons. Only the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, white, cream, silver, gold to go… it’ll take no time will it? I love how they are coming together and all it’s taken are two punches  (the TAG punch and the HORIZONTAL punch) and my CROP-A-DILE. Too easy but effective don’t you think. These  tags have been punched from acetate but next time I’ll simply do card-stock.

I guess at this rate I’ll show you the rest in a few weeks time!!!

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