Just Cute Bears # 32 Embossing.

Good morning everyone and it's time for another challenge over at Just Cute Bears. This week we'd like to see some embossing on your card. You could do heat embossing or dry embossing, either with embossing folders or a light box. It's up to you, whatever you prefer. I have to admit to loving my embossing folders.

Thanks to everyone who joined us last week for our colour challenge. I love pink and brown together and you seemed to like that colour combo too. There were some beautiful cards.

This week I was in Christmas mode so I thought I'd make a Christmas card for Just Cute Bears too. Don't you just love the new Christmas images from Lili of the Valley?

I used :-
Image :- LOTV diecut.
DP :- Memory Box - Mistletoe.
Card Candy and Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Snowflake :- Martha Stewart punch
Card candy and edges of snowflakes coloured with Promarker.
Swiss dots embossing folder.
Stickles, Sakura glitter gel pen and Ice White Pearl Pen.
I quite like this card so when I was at a crop at my local craft shop yesterday I made another 5. All slightly different. I also coloured in 6 images so at least I'm making a start on my Christmas cards. We had a lovely time at the crop. We've been meeting about every 4 weeks since last September and we always have fun. Everyone took something - sweet, savoury, paper plates sweets and crisps. We had sandwiches, quiche, sausage rolls etc; trifle, cake, meringues plus traybakes and tablet. Yummy. I took carrot cake and rocky road. It's a surprise we got any work done with all the eating and chatting.
I'm also entering the following challenges :-
Sketch and Stash :-Sketch and new stash - DP.
Stampin for the Weekend :- Anything goes.
The Secret Crafter :- Make a Start on Christmas.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and if you have a holiday tomorrow hope the weather is fine.
