Stripes, but not the film…

Wednesday Stamper is really one of my favourite challenge blogs to visit – so much variety to see and it’s fascinating to see everyone’s interpretations of the weekly themes. So, I just happened to have a house with stripes and stamping going on and the legend reads: “Arty Chick. Eat cake 5 x a day” It’s nothing personal, just the way it turned out… it’s neither an order, nor advice, nor my personal recommendation! It just makes me giggle and I think I was having a Marie Antoinette moment – probably because we’d run out of bread!! See – the ‘wicked’ sense of humour getting the better of me again!

Eat Cake 5 x a day!

The Eat Cake stamp is Anita’s, the swirls is my 2nd ever handcarved and the rest was pure fun and using scraps of stash from my shoebox of stickers, letters and eclectic junk! Looks good though, doesn’t it?!!

I had fun texting my DD at school yesterday – I know, bad Mummy! – but she wants to start a Saturday job for which she needs a work permit from school as she’s only 13… so I wanted to ensure she got that to speed up the process of interview, acceptance, start-date, etc. Then I also had to ask her if she’d remembered to buy me some rubber erasers to carve. (I can resist the urge to carve… NOT!) She came home with 10 staedtlers… each about 3cm x 1cm! Not really big enough for what I wanted, but hey, there are 2 new stamps in my collection today, so I guess they are all going to end up inked anyhow! 😉

Nearly forgot – the film STRIPES is one of my all-time faves. I had a huge crush on Bill Murray and almost had the parade sequence down pat! I still watch it every time it comes on telly!!
