We are having such a gorgeous spell of lovely weather here in the south. Shame it wouldn't stay as warm as this throughout the winter....

Onto my card for today....I bought a Heat Gun some time ago and have only just mastered how to use it - it was funny really as I inked each letter individually and had to do them as fast as I could so it wouldn't dry but I think my first try turned out OK. I am only entering this one into 1 challenge - Crafty Catz Chocolate/Green Challenge. I just hope I have got it in on time....
Image - can't recall where I got it but it is a digi coloured in with PMs in various colours of green & brown;
Papers are from stash;
Brad from Paperchase.

Many thanks for leaving comments - much appreciated.


  1. Fab card. I used to be like you when I first bought the gun and the glitter was everywhere. lol.
    A little tip:- put all the letters together with masking tape and stamp, etc so that you only have to stamp once and quicker too.

  2. Well done you, it looks great.
    I don't use a gun very often but I have a frined that embosses every single stamped image she stamps, It does look nice and I know you have to use a certain ink in order for it to look good, yours does and your card itself is lovely. I love tree images. Debbiexx

  3. Hi Sheila, Love your card and I can help you with the image - it's my Spring Tree! The other images you were asking about printing out in colour - if you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements it's possible to change the colours but I don't know about other programs. You can find my email address on my blog if you want to know more :o)
