Peace be upon you hello hello & hello you must have arrived from Lin's BLOG well .. let me introduce myself first my name is Amna .. and I'm from the United Arab Emirates .. Pronounced Aa- Me - Nah in formal Arabic :P it means peaceful & safe and yes I am peaceful and safe .. hahah .. I am so thrilled to be taking part in this gigantic quillers blog hop
and sorry for any last minute inconvenience
it is also my first blog hop :) but girls just wanna have fun don't they ? so lets have some fun then ..

I chose to demonstrate a tutorial for making domes these are normally used for making flowers .. but also used for making faces in quilled miniatures but today .. we'll use them for .. ahm .. chocolates why ? because .. life is sweet and to me chocolate is sweeter
( update : ok finally managed to upload the video .. I hope you like it )
Domes or half circles were used in making the strawberries on the cakes
while the cake it self was simple made by creating a large tight coil
You can visit my website check out the gallery for more pictures .. okay ? no we aren't done yet .. you still have more fun things to come across and you should be heading towards Yuenie's blog for even better things to come

Valentine cards with colour !!!

Yes .. with colour ..
why not ?
not a big fan of only red
not a big fan of only pink
but yeah I'm a big fan of a mix in a nice way
oh well .. just look at the pictures and you'll get it
I just love larger stamps with space & details to colour
was trying to act smart by blending with white pencil but the result wasn't good
so crackle paint was calling for me and I answered
it did the trick
Stamps: HeroArts Tall Flower, Tags & Tickets
Ink : Tuxedo Black Memento
Cardstock : PapertreyInk kraft card
Other : Colour pencils, Copic markers,
Dimensional pearls, stickles, white gel pen, ribbon & thread
and crackle pain clear candy rock
look at the large flower ?
that's the glossy accents help .. haa haa haa
great isn't it
Didn't know what to do with the large heart .. only used it once before and felt bad looking at it
I thought .. ok time to do some colouring again
so .. once more .. Kraft cardstock and pencils and markers
and sky's the limit
Stamp : Blooming Heart, Great Flourishes
Ink : Tuxedo Black Memento, Heroarts latte chalk ink
Cardstock : PapertreyInk kraft card
Other : colour pencils, glitter pens, white gel pen,
dimensional pearls, stickles, pearls, glossy accent
have a great day full of colour and glitter and glossy accents & crackle paint

New Bride?!!!

something old .. something new
combination of old & new creations
New Bride
Normally I don't like making the same creation again
but the bride I made long time ago
was sent as a gift to a very sweet artist in Australia
so I decided to make a new version with different style
but hey .. it's still a bride in white
or cream in this case :P

نعمة الصحة

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
سنه يديده وحاله يديده
Not a good start :)
been sick precisely from 2nd December
last week got a little better
and last night was my worst
don't even know why I'm writing this but
one should thank God for ones health
and I lost mine
لكن الحمدلله على كل حال
not being able to sleep coz I can't breath
not being able to practice my hobby coz it turned out I have allergy and the amount of paper I consume in my hobby everyday surely had its effect
not being able to do many things and not being able to be content with so many other things
but thank God nevertheless
I fear that sometimes my little tiny bit of faith is drifting away
but I'll still hang in there and see how its gonna end ..
I hope 2011 is better than 2010
with no sharp spears of envious eyes or rude people ..
اللهم أعني على نفسي وارحمني برحمتك يا أرحم الرحمين
