Cheers

Wow, is it Friday again already?  This week has gone by fairly quickly and I'm looking forward to spending the evening participating in Virtual Stamp Night over at Splitcoast Stampers.

But to start the day off, our theme for Blogger's Challenge this week is embossing (heat or dry).  I have to admit I'm not a great embosser, especially heat embossing.  But, for a challenge, I'm willing to try it out. I only embossed my sentiment on this.


I actually created this card awhile ago for the Card Ideas for Paper Crafters (formerly Go-To Sketches) and really liked the design of it, but it didn't get in to this issue.

Want to join us and show off your embossing skills this week?  Join us by linking directly to your creation below. Please do not link to cards that were created prior to the challenge date. Entries not linking properly, or backlinked will be removed.

Great card. You should do embossing more often, you'll find your confidence grows with experience and I think your results on this one are fabulous.
