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!

What a day!!!

Today was Under 8’s Day at our school with loads of activities taking place this morning on the oval that parents and carers alike were invited to attend. To cut a long story short, and with Miss Six having won the toss for which child I should be with, we were finally on the oval, amongst all the celebrations.

We headed to the police display as this was were all the noise was coming from. Miss Six was rather chuffed with sitting in the paddy wagon, riding on the BMW, and even singing into the Highway Patrol car’s loudspeaker but mummy, oh mummy was very excited. Why? Because I had the thrill of wearing a flap jacket!

Yes I know, you’re yawning but let me tell you, I was EXCITED – and I still am! For whatever reason I’ve always found the donning of the flap jacket the ultimate. No I couldn’t tell  you why I’ve always secretly harboured this desire but for whatever reason I have and today I fulfilled this little dream. I think it’s time for the dance (and if you’ve never watched Evan Almighty you’ll have absolutely no idea what I’m on about…)!

But as you know, nothing ever goes to plan so all this took much longer then planned hence not much of my “to-do” list was accomplished today which is more then a tad annoying. However, I did get a good head-start on Girl Child’s birthday present. I had briefly thought, as I raced out the door hoping to get to the Post Office before my 4.45pm appointment, that I would have the children in bed early tonight thus I would be able to come down to the studio to complete it tonight. Therefore being on track for tomorrow but that was obviously the two pots of coffee I’d consumed talking as I’m ready for bed NOW yet I hear the children still going strong in their bedrooms ;(

One thing I did achieve was the completion of a card I put together on Monday. It was layout that had caught my eye by the very talented Sharlene Meyer of Magpie Creates. Sharlene had found it in our Autumn-Winter Mini Catty and tweaked it to her liking so I thought, why not, I have the Medallion background on order so I may just have a “tweak” myself… and I did!

This is the end result in one of my favourite colours that sadly is retiring in just a few short months, the Pumpkin. Not my usual style but I’m impressed with the end result, very crisp and clean!


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