I spent ages yesterday trying to make a card using one of my new stamp sets from Uniko called 'balloon bash' and I wanted to stamp the balloons in a light pink. Well of course it was going to be one of those days..... either I could just not get the right pressure and the image was too faint or I ended up smudging it, so after several attempts (which all went in the bin) I finally gave up.
Then today the postie delivered a Mini Misti which I'd won in the wonderful Darnell's NBUS challenge and I decided to have another go....... well, it was like magic. I couldn't believe just how easy peasy it was and in the matter of a few minutes I'd got the image stamped and after the addition of a Tattered Lace sentiment die, a piece of ribbon and a couple of gems I had a card. No more cursing, just oohs and aahs and a smile on my face. I can see this Misti will be getting a LOT of use, so THANK YOU again Darnell.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Uniko challenge 'happy 5th birthday Uniko'
Tuesday Throwdown challenge 'say it with words'
In The Pink challenge 'dies and/or punches'
Allsorts challenge 'anything goes'
Thanks for popping by today and I hope you have a good week.
