I have to confess to putting the heating back on today ...
The atrocious weather could be indicative of the forthcoming Bank Holiday weekend.
Hope life is warmer, and sunnier, with you.
It's AAA Cards' birthday - 2 years old!
Addicted To Stamps have a photo bursting with cupcakes and
Seize The Birthday want to see a bit of dimension.
My little cupcake is shimmering with a Wink of Stella to complement the glittery hearts and shiny gold thread.
It's the only thing shimmering around my neck of the woods as the sun is resolutely refusing to appear.
It's a cold overcast day.
Off to put the washing out to dry ...on the radiators!
Thanks for popping by!
I've been having some spitzing fun with my Brushos.
If you would like to join in with the Uniko challenge,
there is some lovely inspiration from the rest of the DT:
Inkspirational want to see mint and navy.
Addicted To Stamps want CAS.
A quick post as I'm off to do the hoovering whilst little Alfie is fast asleep.
Do you know how exciting the hoover is for a 13-week old puppy?!
I get very little carpet hoovered whilst he wants to play with it ..
Thanks for popping by!

We made this card (amongst others!) at my last Craft Club session.
Lots of different techniques to have fun with - watercolouring with dry embossing, then heat embossing and a final sprinkling of Mica powders!
First we "pooled" a couple of ink colours in the debossed areas of the embossing folder before passing the card through the Big Shot.
Then we brushed Versamark over the embossed areas and sprinkled it with holographic and silver embossing powders.
To finish it off, we added some irridescent Mica powder with an Aquapainter.
both have "anything goes".
Metallics could be in the form of paper, card, embellishments or heat embossing.
I've paired the wonderful "Background Builders: Circles" stamp set with some sentiments from the "Simply Said" set and some requisite metallic sequins.
