Lifes Most Precious Moments

Hi folks, how are you all?  I have been in my element today, no work as I was using some holiday up so what did I do, yes you guessed it, crafting this afternoon.  Heaven.

My card today is using some of the embellishments I made using my melt pot.  Yes folks, I actually unpacked it, put it on and used it.  I just needed some time so on Friday I had a craft day, well I couldn't go anywhere, injections into my foot so I had to rest it.  Brilliant excuse of course to craft.

I have to say I really enjoyed playing, my mate Sheila was also using her melt pot for the first time so we played together on skype. 

I had made loads of paper roses which I glazed to get used to it.  Then I added my first lot of colour and made some embellishments using my silicone moulds.  I have to admit, I am hooked now, and have already ordered some more clear utee in the biggest size I could find.  Hope it arrives by the weekend.  Have added some more moulds to my NEC list and ofcourse some more colours.

The idea for this layout came from issue 2 of the tattered lace magazine and I have used the free die that came with it. 

My Shopping List

Tattered Lace leaves set

I do hope you like this and I am so pleased with the melt pot embellishments, they are not as heavy as I thought they would be.

Thanks for stopping by and you take care.
