Murphy's Law or Mission impossible?

Gisterenmiddag viel plots onze telefoon- en internetverbinding uit! Blijkbaar was onze 'black box' defect. 't Was wel even zwaar afkicken zo zonder internet. Ik heb dan maar verder gewerkt aan een kleine attentie voor een vriendin, tegelijkertijd mijn deelname voor de Crafty Creations challenge #1, die gisteren van start ging met als thema 'Harten in overvloed'. Op het stukje zeep (zonder merk) heb ik een hart van Hero Arts 'gestempeld'. Leg hiervoor bakpapier op de zeep en strijk over de zeep om ze zacht en indrukbaar te maken. Neem de met Versamark beïnkte stempel, druk hem in de zeep en laat even staan.
Het bijpassend doosje werd gemaakt met Core'dinations cardstock 'aged wine' en DP 'Bittersweet mousse' van Basicgrey. Het hartje werd gestempeld met VersaMark en geëmbossed met clear poeder, het randje is 'Burgundy van Core'dinations. Het doosje sluit met een klein magneetje van Basicgrey.


Yesterday afternoon our phone and internet connection fell out due to a technical problem. I got one hell of a 'Cold Turkey' without my internet, lol. I decided to work on a small present for a friend, which is also my entry for the new Crafty Creations challenge #1 'Hearts Galore', that started yesterday. On the piece of soap I stamped a Hero Arts heart. Put baking paper on the soap and iron it so it becomes soft. Then press your stamp that is inked with versamark into the soap and leave it for a while.
The matching box was made with Core'dinations cardstock 'aged wine' and 'Bittersweet mousse' DP by Basicgrey. The heart was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with clear powder; the border is 'Burgundy' by Core'dinations. Ribbon from stash. The box closes with a magnet snap by Basicgrey.

Mmmmmmmm, I bet that soap smelled lovely when it started to melt. Never crossed my mind to stamp into soap, that's really ingenious, and it looks wonderful as does the box. You really know how to spoil your friends with these lovely gifts you make. By the way it's still cold here, AND we had tons of snow fall in the night, had a nasty shock when I got up this morning and saw it all. YUK, me no like snow :P And my nose is cold, which if I was a dog would be a sign of good health, but I'm not so I'm going to cuddle down in bed and dream of Spring :)
Take care, keep smiling and sweet dreams

Wat een leuke dingen heb je gemaakt!
Ja het is echt wel afkicken zonder internet, wij hebben afgelopen weekend 4 dagen zonder internet gezeten. Als je een beetje blogverslaafd bent en graag emailtjes schrijft was dit voor mij wel serieus afkicken.
