The Best Laid Plans...

Hi Folks,

Well who told the weather that I was to paint the shed???  Its been either raining or really windy since I got the paint, so yesterday afternoon Shell and I had a bit of a facetime crafty play!! 

My first creation went in the bin as I just wasn't happy with it. Then I made 2 cards  and I love them.

This is the second one. I will share the first another day.  I found a stencil that had been put away ages ago and  wanted to make a card for Shells challenge My Time to Craft
I used clear embossing ink through the stencil and made the card all sparkly with embossing powders. 
Card Recipe
A6 Card
Stamps By Chloe Snowflake Stencil (free in magazine) 
Holographic Embossing Powder.
UTEE Embossing Powder On the Die
Die - Pre Loved from Ebay.

The die was heat embossed with the holographic powder then I put s coating of UTEE on it as well so its very sturdy. 

Thanks for dropping by today,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

This is so beautiful with the heat embossing!
I think you must be glad with the weather. Crafting with Shell is so much nicer than painting the shed.

Hazel that card is amazing. Just love the way it turned out. Better than painting the shed if I say My cat I thought did better with it initially, but now I think that she has ME TRAINED. She cries continuously in the morning UNTIL I give her treats. She has a sensitive stomach so I have to get them at only one store, argh. Then when I come home she cries continuously UNTIL I hold or cuddle her. So I have been trained to meet her needs and I think she is loving it. So I don't know if she is still having problems or just likes the routine. Spoiled brat that she is.
