Morning everyone, hope things are going okay for you all. I feel a little frazzled today as it has definitely been one of those weeks with Hubby's back causing him a lot of pain, Dad in hospital with pneumonia and this morning some more sad news....... but we are built to plod on regardless so here are a couple of makes that I finished at the weekend but not got round to showing you.
The first is a tag using some of my NBUS goodies and heat embossing. I'm very new to heat embossing and only have a pot of white powder so I used Uniko 'stunning snowflakes' (love those snowflake designs) to stamp, heat emboss and then sponge Memento inks on a circle of card before matting onto a gold mirricard circle. Then I die-cut the Poppystamps 'country houses' and 'country houses background' and layered them up but decided I wasn't keen on the white in white so used Memento inks to add some colour and then added another white 'country houses' die-cut on the top before sticking to the tag and adding the bow.
I made this for
ABC Christmas challenge 'H is for home, I is for informal'
Poppystamps challenge 'gift it'
WOW Embossing challenge 'favourite embossing technique'
Addicted To Stamps challenge 'not a square card'
And here is an easter card using a decoupage image and papers from the Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse decoupage' cd with just the addition of some flowers and ribbon to finish.
CD Sunday challenge 'spring colours' my 2nd entry
House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'stop and smell the flowers'

Thanks for popping by today and for taking the time to leave me a few words. I'm off to have a nice quiet (I hope) and much needed cuppa tea. Take care and I'll catch up with you soon.
