Gold

Hi All,

Well, the weather's finally broken here, what a thunderstorm we had at 5 am this morning. I do enjoy a good thunderstorm although I wasn't quite excited enough to actually get out of my bed to look out the window.  Hopefully the sun will return soon.

I made a birthday card the other day and it just to happens it fits with this week's CASology challenge which is "GOLD" and the Craft-room Challenge which is "HEAT EMBOSSING".


I used a Klimt stamp from Chocolate Baroque which I think has quite a Deco feel to it.  I stamped the image onto black card and heat embossed in gold.  I did the same with the sentiment, then mounted them onto gold miri, then matted again onto the black and gold miri card.

Well, that's me for today, short and sweet.  I'm still going to the chircopractor and getting deep tissue massages (ouch) but I'm feeling much better and I do seem to have more energy again.


Thanks for popping in, see you all soon.

Suze xx

hi Suze - wow what gorgeous work, so stunning and I LOVE the stamps and yes they do have that Art deco Feel. I go to my osteopath every 6 weeks - have done for years, I love it when he lays hands upon my person!! (Laughing!) No, to be fair, all the crafting and stuff makes my back and neck ache terribly so its such a relief. Hope you feel better soon! Cxxx
