Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Thoughts on Tuesday

Well I have had a lovely, relaxing start to my Tuesday.  I watched another of my favourite crafters, Sheena Douglass on TV, and as always she made me think and want to craft!?!?!!?  But, before I get out my various inks and play, I thought I'd share this very simple, but sweet ( tweet) card with you.
You can get this look with (or without) a magnetic mat and with any shape of die - I just like the simplicity of the square, which matches the stamped image.  The stamp is from Inkadinkado - the Butter & Birds Inchies Set.  I have coloured with DI and triple embossed.

Now to play.....see you soon - not sure what state my desk will be in tomorrow!
