Righto, on to this weeks Challenge, which is


For this weeks cards, LO's, altered items etc we want you to show us embossing. It can be dry, it can be wet, it can be both. It can be lots of it and it can be just a tiny bit.

Need some inspiration, head over to the Challenge blog and check out what the girls on the DT have created for you.

Now for my card, well, you see there was a bit of a mix up, and with my computer crashing etc, and trying to put everything back on. I went to load the card I had been working on for this challenge, and realised, der, I had made a card for the wrong challenge. So it was a mad rush to get this up and going, and my brain was in meltdown. LOL.
So what I decided to do was use an already coloured image from The Paper Shelter and
work with that. Wowzers, it is wonderful isnt it. (It does take the fun out of
colouring, but when you need a card quickly! WOW!!!)

Ok, so I have used the coloured image "Spring Swing" , and the paper is from the
"Let's Make a Picnic" Set. OMG these papers are so pretty, and went
perfectly with the image. I used two of my cuttlebug embossing folders, small dots, and errrrrr bird swirl (if i find the correct names i will add them! LOL)
And I have added some beautiful flowers from I Am Roses, gosh they were the
perfect colour. The Leaf is a Marianne Creatable Die, and the swirl is my Magnolia one.
The charm is from my stash.

Well can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!
