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!

Friday's Followers Gallery - 3rd Sept.

Hi, I'm late today with my FFG post and again I have to apologize to Julie, but this is what happened and if you read it in a book you would not believe it!

I returned home last night jubilant over a bowls match victory that gave us the 1st Division Ladies Championship. To unwind from the tension, I switched on the tele and started to watch a programme on not sleeping (something I'm good at) and being kept awake by snoring. It was interesting! The programme reached a point where this couple jumped into bed, the husband (being the snorer, of course) was going to try this new idea of placing a shield on the roof of his mouth, the wife leaned over, kissed him and said "goodnight" - switched off the light, the scene when black, we sat there also in darkness for a few seconds waiting for the prog to return - would the man be snoring or not!?!??!? Nothing, just as the light when out so did our power! 18 hours later, it's just come back on!

Anyway, back to Julie and her card.
This is what you call using your dies to the full!

If you pop over to Julie's blog you will find a detailed explanation of how to acheive this brill card.  Well done Jule, and thanks for sharing and allowing me put this in the Friday's Followers Gallery. 

I'm having a day out tomorrow since it's my birthday, but please feel free to have a look around the Cupboard, I'm sure you'll finding of interest in my back posts.

Inventive use of dies!
At least you didn't have to hear the man snoring in the end. Well done too on your bowls victory.

What a fab card from Julie... Love it.

OMG - you were without power for all that time? We've had a couple of power cuts recently... no idea why. However, they don't beat the time you were without power.

Congratulations and well done on winning the Championship...
