New Challenge Blog to Share!

Hello Friends ...  

BFF Diane and I are at it again!  We've come up with yet another challenge blog that we hope you will all enjoy and come join in our fun.  While we were both doing some clean up we decided our EMBOSSING FOLDERS and EMBOSSING POWDERS don't see nearly enough love so what better way to use these products then to create a new challenge blog ... as we are sure we are not the only ones with this problem!   LOL!

Our new blog is called ...

(play on words meaning the pressure on your embossing machine ... lol)

I told Diane we should have named it
'Two Crazy Ladies With Another Challenge Blog'
Good Grief ... LOL

Anyways, this will be a Bi-Monthly challenge on the 2nd & 4th Saturday of each month.  Our theme will be ANYTHING GOES USING AN EMBOSSING FOLD and there will be a TWIST for each challenge that you can or can not use ... your choice.  You can also use your embossing powders but you MUST use an embossing folder whether or not you do heat embossing.

Diane is up with our first challenge and theme is:


I have used a WeRMemory Keepers embossing folder.
It reminds me of this adorable tufted baby quilts so I went with a baby theme.
After embossing my pink panel, I used white Nuvo Crystal Drops and placed a drop inside each 'tufted' panel to draw more attention to the embossing.  Not that it really needed it ... this is a 3D folder so there are nice deep embossed impressions.

Challenges to share in:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Emboss It
Critter Crazy Challenge #59 - ATG with a featured critter (giraffe)
Creations in Pink Challenge #42 - ATG Pink

I do hope you'll come check out our new blog and play along.
AND yep ... we will be offering prizes at our challenges ... that's always a fun surprise!

Here's today's prize offering ...
