Embossing at AYLI

Hello friends.

I have my DT card for 


where our challenge for you this time is

EMBOSSING

I couldn't decide so have included both on my card, copper WOW embossing powder and a Crafters Companion free EF that came with a magazine. The stamp was also free and stamped and embossed on to a Joy tag set




I really should emboss more often as it adds such interest to a card and looks especially fabulous on pearl card, although it never photographs particularly well...you don't need me to tell you that!!





Hope you will find time to join us this fortnight...after all it's a great opportunity to dust off your pots of embossing powder!!

Some challenges to play

Crafty Creations #310 - Sentiment as a focal point
Creative Moments #88 - Amything Goes +/- a sentiment
Noor Design UK #16 - CAS
Ooh la la #199 - Add a sentiment
Create and Inspire #41 - Anything Goes

My first job of the day is to ring the heating engineer to get our heating fixed...it's too chilly to do without for very long. Socks in bed is not a good look!!
