I love sundays

Well I like the ones when there s no chores to catch up with and c****y jobs to be doing altho there s plenty of them I could find but nothing is desperate right now lol. So I ve played and managed to do nothing fit for showing hinestly everything I ve tried just went in the bin apart from one thing but I m not going to show you it today, you will have to wait till tmrrw. yeah I m planing on blogging tmrrw. as well only cos I ve got something very exciting for you. So I m showing you some older stuff this time, I m starting with the birthday card for the swap that I didn t have a photo off to show you in my last post.


I cannot stop using *Simply Said* I just love the versatility it provides. Firstly I ve stamped the heart sentiment outline in Cert. Celery and I used the same ink to stamp my birthday wishes sentiment form *Sincere Salutations* set, then for my blue heart I took my solid heart stamped in Versamark pad first then in Basful blue pad then I ve stamped on a piece of whisper white, I took my heat and stick powder poured it over the image then heat it with my heat gun until it changed then I ve sprinkled ultrafine glitter all over and heat again to fix it. This powder is amazing it is not like an embossing powder altho it works in the same way it is like a glue that grabs your glitter and then when heat gently it just melts the glitter into that glue and this means that there is no shedding of the glitter, like there would be when you would just use glue. I love it and i find myself using it all the time. PP papers are from the Cutie Pie collection the white layer was punched out using the spiral punch from SU.
Next is a card I ve had to send to a dear friend.

I ve used the truck from * Loads of love* and my *loads of love accesories* to make this bright card. The papers were from Cutie Pie set Certainly Celery and Old Olive cardstock and heat and stick treatment was added to the flowers. I ve coloured the truck using ink pads as I wanted a softer look and coloured the flowers with markers. Hope it brightened her day.
Now my next one I should not post today really as it was made for Trisha my teamie and her birthday is not till tmrrw. but will go and warn her not to look on the thread as soon as I m posting this.lol



I know this is not a SU set hee hee, but I just wanted to use this Bella as I so like it. I did add a SU sentiment so that counts lol. I ve used papers from either Dovecraft or Papermania ( can t honestly remember and I ve had since january and only got round to use them) Love the brightness of this card I ve used Prismas to colour the image and yep you guessed it more heath and stick for the frosting on the cupcake. I ve left this image big so you could click on it to see the shimery effect better.
Ok I ve git something to share with you, I m seriously considering adding some video tutorials to my blog, I m not sure what you guys think? Is just that i know many crafters out there are quite visual and you know what they say a picture is worth a thousands words, and I always love watching tutorials and I know you guys would probably do too. So I will do some reaserch on this and keep you posted. That s it for today see ya !! M xx
ps How good it is that that little girl have been found alive an well? I was so happy when I found out altho only God knows what she might have experienced over those weeks. God bless her xxxx
