Where IS the iron?!

 Morning Fluffers :)


 After my 'rant' about ironing, yesterday, Squirrel raised an interesting point. And so, I ask you... where IS the Iron? This should be a simple issue. In all things Fluff, you can be sure if something goes with something, they will live together. DVDs? Bookcase near the Telly. Duster? Tub with Mr Sheen. (Other Brands available!) Jellybeans? Craft Area. Ironing Board? Garage. Iron? Erm...! Despite the fact that the Garage is designated a Strictly Blue Area, I can tell you, the Iron is not there. So, I ask again. Where is the stoopid Iron? Bearing in mind I have been known to put the Kettle in the Fridge, (with the Milk for the Tea. No, I'm teasing. Seriously, I don't actually know why I put the Kettle in the Fridge!) it could be. Anywhere. Not that I want to use it, you understand. Wait! Does chucking it at Hubby count as using the Iron? Ooooooooooh!

Anyway, this gorgeous lass is called Tress (I actually misread her name when I first saw her and spent a good few days calling her Trees!) and she has just been released at Make it Crafty. It was really nice to use red and green for something non-Christmassy. I've used the Sketch from the current Challenge in the Make it Crafty Facebook Group. It's a lovely Sketch, and considering how easy it is, Boy! Did I struggle!!

So gorgeous Faye, such a pretty image and amazing colouring, her hair looks so beautiful. I love the papers and ribbon too.
Due to me having 3 children who seem to change their clothes every day, I am sorry to say that I need to use my iron on a regular basis therefore it has a permanent place on my kitchen work top.
Unfortunately no-one else has been tempted to use it yet!
Hugs Sue xx

Hiya... Fluffer Christine here! Your posts really do make me chuckle.. and your run down on where things are kept... love the fact that the jelly beans are in the craft room! Mind you, it'd have to be Jelly Bellies for me! LOVE those things!

Gorgeous image... and your colouring is, as always, stunning... I love the hair colouring in particular.

Big fluffy hugs

Good Morning Faye! My trip to Hobby Lobby was a success! My hubbie went to the Sporting Goods store next door while I shopped!
I love round cards! Something about them makes the subject so pleasing on that little round palette. I love this image! Your coloring is awesome! I love her hair! A great little card!

Amanda R said...

Iron equals paperweight at my house! Love your coloring on this, you just get better and better!

Margreet said...

Great hair colouring. Now I do happen to know where our iron is cos it's where The Doc put it in the garage. I also know where my travel iron is. It's in my craft drawer along with my glue gun and heat gun so have you looked in the Flufferie? Now perhaps you can explain why the packet of hot cross buns we bought yesterday was found in the cheese drawer of the fridge this morning! No one is holding their hands/paws up yet!! Hugs Muver.

Another absolute stunner hun, love the shape, and she is gorgeous. Your artwork is flawless and fills her with life! On the subject of the missing iron, I went searching after leaving the comment...and I did find it - it's upstairs acting as a doorstop for the cupboard with the dodgy latch in the study! Hugs xx

It's true, one don't see many red and green cards that are not Christmas cards, I don't know how that is, it's a great color combo for other themes as well. I love her hair! Ever since I was a child I wanted red hair. I preferred Cindy dolls to Barbie, because there were CIndy dolls with red hair, and those were my favorite ones.
