Mega Flakes, Pan Pastels, Indigo Blu, Oh My!

It does the soul good to play and see what happens, so I got out the Flitter glue, Mega Flakes, Pan Pastels and Poppy Heart By IndigoBlu and started to play.

Pearls and Ribbon Buckle are from Mei Flower my favourite embellishment company.

I used the Brighton Pier Mega flakes on the Poppy Heart stamp you can see it has a fabulous effect on the picture below.

The prayer stamp I’ve had for years and I think it was a Stampendous stamp, I bought at a craft fair.

I had a little hiccup with my making the right choices in food on Saturday, Jack had been baking with his Mam and made both myself and his Grandad a chocolate cornflake cake, I picked the smallest one though and it was simply delishhhhhh.

Chocolate anything is my downfall. The other day I was craving so bad, I took the frozen baking bar out of the freezer. Bad me, bad me but it tasty yummy, your's sounds much better.

Hi Jak, what a beautiful card, the stamp is gorgeous. I have seen Pan Pastels on tv but am not really sure how to use them, can I suggest you do a tutorial on them for us all to learn more. They are quite expensive and I for one need to be convinced. Best wishes, Lesley x

One thing is I am never disappointed in visiting your blog and seeing your wonderful cards and this is no exception. I love what you have done with the poppy ( I know it's a favourite of yours) and the colurs you have usied....it's stunning. The pale pink and green go so well together. Can you tell me what the 2 patterened papers are please? Well done Jak as always.
