Using Silver, Bronze Or Gold - We Stamp On Sundays

Hi all!
Bit of a delay in the post today, but I shall tell you about that later. This week's challenge for Adventures In Stamping sort of snuck up on me (only doing the nails today on sunday) so I had to quickly decide on what to do. And when I really thought about it I realised I knew exactly what I wanted to do, and what with :]
Base Coat: La Femme
Base Colour: Miss Sporty - Unkown, I thought It was Fatal Black..
Stamping Colours: Miss Sporty - Electric Beige
Barry M - Gold Foil
China Glaze - Millennium
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM315
Top Coat: Sally Hansen - Advanced Hard As Nails
In real life the colour difference is more noticeable, and maybe i'll have a look through other photos and add a better one in at some point. For a swatch (although old and bad:P) go here.

Here's what I used:

So I was all ready to write this post up about 2 hours ago, but then the weather went wild. At first I was happy as I like storms, especially when I'm in the house, I was just about to make a hot chocolate (sad I know) and then It went downhill.

First I went running around the garden to see if my cat Cheese had been locked in the greenhouse, as she wasn't in the house. She wasn't in there but there were a couple leaks that were pouring, so I stuck out some empty tubs. By the time I ran back to the house with a huge umbrella I was soaking wet, but Cheese was in the house now all safe and sound, so it was all gravy. That is, until I went into my room, and saw the window leaking water everywhere! So yeah I sorted all that out, and moved all electrical bits and bobs away from the splash zone. Now the rain wouldn't hurt you with its sheer force if you went outside, and the water level isn't almost up to the top step of the front door anymore, so there's not so much panic in the house.

So, now I'm back to writing this post, but in the kitchen instead. Fingers crossed it won't rain heavier ;( This is also why there's only one picture of my mani, and lack of time to edit, but also because for the worst part of the down pour, it looked like it was night time outside lol.

I hope you lot are having a nice Sunday to make up for mine! :]

    1. It was a horrible time! I don't think the damage is too serious (I think it was some ivy & clamatis that's grown between the wall/roof and the guttering) Will have to wait for my dad to come back from holiday though hehe.

      Thanks =]

  8. The manicure is gorgeous! And I know the rain story to well! In my house in romania 3 windows were leaking until recently and it wasn't fun when the rain started :/ But it's good that everything went okay in the end and that Cheese was safe ;)

    1. Oh really; it sounds like you ARE laughing at me :P You'd be laughing even more if you'd seen me running about in heavy duty (and really heavy) mens size 10 wellies, pajama bottoms, and a Zelda shirt lol.

    Hope your house didn't flood out too badly and glad Cheese made it in safely!

    1. Awhhh thanks =3

      Luckily none the rain let up a bit and the drain out front could cope! Another 15 minutes as heavy and i'm sure it would've flooded a bit.

    1. It was quite a pleasure to work with, only a couple turned out naff (on the stamp before stamping on the nail) but that was because I waited too long.

  15. I love storms too except for last summer when there was one so fierce that my skylights flooded fiercely and I was standing on my sink in the middle of the night holding towels. The next day I was told I had to buy a new roof!!! Love the stamping-perfection!
