A day and a half....

Morning folks....yesterday turned out to be one of those all kicked off bright and early with a bit of Broadband this going to be a mega SAGA...a head in my hands and tearing my hair out job...certainly NOT...sorted in a jiffy thanks to a very very nice man from BT...the only saving grace of the day as it happens.  I should have known that these little disasters normally come in was squaring up to be one of those days when you just can't put a foot right.  The little smidgen of inspiration that was still lurking in the cubbyhole took off when the sun decided to grace us with his what did I have to show for a toil and trouble day in the cubbyhole...ONE Fiskars card and believe me even that was a struggle...crikey if production continues at this cracking pace...the deadlines will have been and gone...Christmas will too.
And speak about kicking an old girl when she's down...I had intended to use my favourite Fiskars Squeeze Punch....

this cheeky little chap looks rather sweet all togged out as a Robin Redbreast...but he doesn't feature in the 2011 catalogue so I can't use him....I can't believe he's been made redundant after his sell-out debut appearance at the SECC last year and the little tinker hopped right off the shelf and onto one of my Ribbon Girl DT cards...just a little sneaky peek.

See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add:....sorry folks if I gave you the impression that this little dude was discontinued....he's not...just not in the current UK catalogue but he is still available to buy HERE


  1. So sorry you had a bad day yesterday, hope today will be much better. Love the card really sorry, sorry you can't use the punch. Hugs to Buddy. Anesha :)

  2. Well you certainly made a great card yesterday, I love that Robin too! Jx

  3. Morning Kath , Like the look of your card with the little robin. He's so cute, sorry you had a bad day, hope this one is much better.Hugs x ChrisB

  4. What a shame the punch is no longer... the robbin is rather cute..

    I'd like to share a blog award with you (piccy & details over on my blog) - your blog brightens my day... and I love ALL your work.

  5. Have a more positive day, Kath , and whizz through those samples the robin card for CC.

  6. What an ADORABLE little bird! Looks like he's dancing. I cannot believe he's been discontinued...what are they thinking? Ah well...have a great, inspirational day!

  7. Oh dear, oh dear . . . hate days like that. Let's hope you have a better one today Kath.

    Hugs, Sandra

  8. I'm so glad I have that wee birdie - but a bit gutted that we're not going to see any inspirations from you. Maybe you could use him once you've got all the fiskars stuff out of the way - think he probably needs to come for a jolly at the beginning of October?

  9. Morning Both. Love your card hope today is going better than yesterday.

  10. So sorry about the gremlins - they were attacking me too: email didn't happen & when the nice man from Apple (they had to get a Specialist to sort me out!!!) sorted it there were almost 30 for me to wade through.
    Love your little bird - hope you have a better day.
