Well, what a frustrating day I have had. I popped out this morning which I thought would only be a couple of hours just to do some bits and bobs, I was all the morning and a lot of the afternoon. I wanted to upgrade my mobile phone as the last one had died. I was in there over 2 hours and even then they couldnt transfer all my numbers across so I had to go home, do it myself and then go back. Nearly got a parking ticket earlier in the day, then couldnt find a parking space the second time. Then, I was so fed up after my trauma in there I forgot to get half the stuff I went out for the in the first place. By then it was 4pm and I just gave up. ARRGGHHH.
The good thing though was that my new Ladybug stamps were waiting for me on my doorstep when I got home! I've only just got around to trying one out, I didnt think I would be able to get to do a card today. Mind you its nearly 1am so probably should have let it until tomorrow!!
I love my new little stamp but I am a bit upset about the cupcakes. I used some glossy accents and then throw on some real sprinkles. I think they have made it look mesy :-( . I also tried some faux stitching on this card (Lisa - I had a go!). Well, it took me ages! It would have been quicker for me to go out and buy a sewing machine! I used a sukura pen for the stiching. Does it look anything at all like stitching?? Advice and comments gratefully received! I dont even think you can see it from my photos anyway! I did make some big holes but you can't seem them as it is layered onto another piece of paper! Also is there a tool out there that makes the whole process quicker??!!
I am going to enter into:
- A Gem of A Challenge - sketch
- Make It Monday
- Pollycraft Challenge - Anything Goes
- A Spoonfull of Sugar - Sparkle and Shine
I have waffled on a bit, sorry about that. Really must think about heading to bed.
Hope you have all had great Saturday's and have a restful Sunday.
