Get Mistin'

Okay! I'm finally back. I know I promised some cards, but it's been a busy few days. Weekend got taken out by my last acute shifts in paediatrics and on Monday, I went car hunting!!!
I can proudly tell you now that I have bought my first car. A bit of a flash one for a first one, but I reasoned that it was long term investment. I ended up with a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer. One friend said, "What a boy racer!" haha.

I have to remember to take a photo of it. I just keep forgetting to take one!
Anyway, I'm sure you didn't come to hear me talk about a car. It's more of a guy thing than a girl thing. You probably wanted to see some new cards hehe.
So, I got my second part of my Christmas gifts from Steph just recently. It had to stay at the postal service depot for almost a week, because this particular service didn't attempt re-delivery. So I had to wait and collect it myself. Steph kindly sent me 3 Mister Huey mists - Calico Shine, Dewey and Clover. I had also bought some more stamps from her so I'm trying to put them into action :)
I don't know how Dawn always makes her mists look perfect in her creations. I can't seem to spray it in the right places. Hence this card somewhat turned out messy. But it kind of adds an interesting touch to it.
The next card is a simple Love Birds card. I just had to use it, because those bird cages are so cute! My dies haven't arrived yet (I bought lots in my last order) so I had to cut up the cages by hand. It's a nice easy shape to cut out, so I do wonder if it was worth getting the die now...
 I misted this card with the Calico Shine mist too. I love how it just turns any cardstock into a shimmer cardstock! It's a little harder to tell in the photo, but trust me, it comes out with a really nice sheen to it afterwards! I have yet to figure out how to flick it properly to get the blobs ;)
Thanks for coming around. Sorry it took such a long time for an update!

Congratulations on your first car! I googled it to see what it looks like-- very nice! A huge step up from my first car: a 1985 Hyundai Pony.
Great cards, Euna! I love the misting you did on the first one and your handcutting on the birdcages is bang on!
To get the blobs for the mist, one of my friends unscrews the cap and shakes off the mist from the stem onto her projects. Something you might want to try...

Lovely cards. I rarely use my mists because I have a hard time getting the mist evenly distributed. Love that love bird card.
Congrtulations on your new car.
