Yummy Mimi and Floral Text

Not blogged for a few days, busy with other things ,hot etc...did have a craftroom tidy though,2 big bags of rubbish and I'm still jam packed, I keep saying I will not buy any new craft stuff but I'm hopeless....I see a stamp I like on another blog,or paper or die cut and baam I'm off spending again....

My first card features yummy Mimi , a penny black stamp, I stayed away from the Mimi's for ages ,but now I'm hooked on them. I've coloured with copics and lovely bright colours adding some modge podge for a bit of dimention and gloss to the heart and cherry. The papers are BoBunny,sweet tooth. The sentiment ,love it, just click the pic for a better look,is a chipboard by DCWV called glitter sweet.

love to create : add a sentiment
The crazy challenge : childhood memories (what child didn't love licking the icing from the mixing bowl)

My second card features a Hero Art stamp, floral text, I've had it awhile but seldom used it,the thing is it's a bugger to stamp and so big ,the main attraction ,so to speak.
Well after 3 tries at stamping this,although not perfect, was the best. I've coloured the flowers in bright promarkers, used bright green bazil paper and a few black pearls. I also added some orange and yellow stickles.

simon says : anything goes

I was supposed to go gardening yesterday but it pee-ed it down,so I used the time to clean my craft room ,will it stay nice ...hell no...
Decided to chance spag bol last night with normal pasta , instead of glutten free, bad idea , it tasted great but I woke in the night with terrible tummy's just not worth it.
Enjoy the long weekend and any celebrations you may attend, hope the weather is kind.

I know it wasn't pleasant for you last night - but at least it confirmed for you that the new regime works. Hope your tummy settles again soon.
Love these two cards - especially the second. Well done for sticking at it and getting a good impression (looks great to me)and your colouring is lovely.

Two gorgeous cards Jane. Haven't bothered with Mimi either but the more I see her the more I like her. Up with pains last night myself, not sure what caused it though:( Hope you have a lovely weekend mrs.
