I have inked a small area with fluid chalk in a maroon colour, then poured red embossing powder on it. I took off the excess then heat with my heat tool. While the powder has melted and still hot I poured some black embossing powder and repeated the process.The last step I used the red EP again.While still hot I stamped a small swirl stamp into it, holding my stamp in place for a few seconds. When I took it off, it leaves an indented impression.I tore the paper around the image which has an enamel effect. I have cracked the image a few times to give it a crackled effect.I then some beads on a wire and attached it to the back of the embellishemnt.
I have used 7 gypsies to spell thinkning of you...they are really tiny and cute and fit this space perfectly as I didn't think of my wording while doing the card!!

This week's challenge over at PCJ is set by Nerdbird's (Stephanie) turn to pick a subject - 'Thank You'
Come and visit us HERE . We do hope that you will be inspired with the DT's examples to create something of your very own. Rather than have the challenge each week based on one medium, e.g cards one week and ATCs the next, we have decided that, as everyone has different preferences that each challenge will incorporate an example for every medium - Cards, ATCs, Altered Art and Scrapbook Layouts. Hopefully in doing this it will encourage people to try things outside their comfort zone.This challenge will run for 1 week and each new challenge will be uploaded by 21:00 on a Sunday evening. Please upload your photographs to our Gallery under 'Challenges' and let us know the materials you used and your thinking behind your creation. Please note: you must be a fully registered and moderated member of PCJ to upload your photographs.Each week the Design Team will choose the best uploaded picture and that person will receive a 15% discount code for our on-line store and sister site, CraftyCarrot.com (should an international crafter be selected, the cost of shipping will apply to the order. Also you must be registered separately with http://www.craftycarrot.com/.
And this is my take for this challenge. I hope you like it!

Challenge 19 on PCJ Website.
This is my take for this challenge and the only elements holding the card together is a brad in the centre and some paperclips at the side. I have made a similar one for my friend at work and loved it so much that I made another one for this challenge where I ommitted any glue.
This week is DebbieN's (Debbie Nicholson) turn to pick a subject - 'No Glue (or tape)'.

I just wanted to share this experience with you so that you know that there are some sick people out there who has got nothing better to do than hacking into people's emails. My email which I normally use and which I had on my blog has been hacked recently. I opened a new email account and emailed my origin email and asked blatantly who is doing this and why. To my great surprise, whoever it was replied to me as 'Gmail Admin' saying it was a problem with the server and I was given a new password. Now Gmail admin would never reply to me using my email, they would normally use a no-reply system and anyway, who would bite this?
Then the next minute, the second email I have just created got hacked too!I managed to devise a system of recovering my password asap.Now everything is in place and Im just amazed of the extent people go at times..! Sad , really sad.
Now I have learnt from my mistake so this is a piece of advice I can give you. On your comments section, choose to moderate your comments so you get to delete any comment you don't want. And always make sure of the secondary email you have used when you are creating your email, so that if you have to recover your password, you can do so by accessing the secondary email asap.
Anyway, I have spent loads of time to sort this out and I hardly have any time to sort other bits and pieces before going back to work on Monday!Have a great week end and see you soon!

Happy 2008 and thank you to evveryone who visited my blog in 2007 and who has supported me all way through. A big TY to Papercraftjunkies website for all the wonderful challenges which have been set and for such a nice crafting zone to share and learn stuffs.
I have a few resolutions for this year but I think I rather not write about them as each and every year, I let go of them a few months down the line....I have asked my friend Sharon to give me an idea if she's got one but if you do have an idea about how to keep the resolutions going please tell me!:)
I have watched 'Derailed' and I think this is a fantastic film. I liked every single minute of it, if you haven't watch it yet, do so, its worth it!
I will be posting some cards soon , so watch this space....
