Can You Handle The Pressure - Sentiment as Focus

Hello Friends, thanks for stopping by today!

We have a new challenge starting today over on our new Can You Handle The Pressure Challenge Blog and the TWIST theme is 'SENTIMENT AS FOCUS'.  Remember, the twist is optional but you MUST use an embossing folder on our projects to qualify for the prize.  Heat embossing is also permitted but only in conjunction with an embossing folder.

 Here's what I've created to inspire you today. 


Today, I have used a Quick Kutz Frame embossing folder (dry embossing) then added my Inkadinkado birthday sentiment using Versamark watermark stamping ink & Moon Glow embossing powder then heat set it (wet embossing).

I haven't wet embossed in literally years and must confess not very good at it ... always make a boo boo somewhere along the line as I did today ... hence the Nuvo white crystal drops to hide that mistake.

Talk about a fast birthday card!   WOW why have I waited so long??

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 . . .

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!!

As always . . .

Combining Challenges

Hello Friends ..

Today I've decided to take a break from re-organizing my crafting cave and play along in a few fun challenges.  I'm combining the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches Blog,


and the color scheme from the Color Throwdown Blog.

One of my favorite stamp sets to color with markers is this fun 'Friendly Flowers' stamp set from Simon Says Stamps. 

And my sentiment dies are from Tutti Designs.

Other challenges to share in are:

The Paper Shelter Challenge #522 - Frame It
Elliebelle's Corner August Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
AAA Birthday Challenge #40 - ATG Birthday

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I wish you all a fabulous weekend ahead.
This is my annual 3-day Family Weekend so I'm going to be busy running back/forth between Ohio & Pennsylvania but I'm so blessed to have such a large & loving family I don't mind all the driving.  

As always . . .
