Embossing @ MAWTT

Morning Guys, almost another Bank Holiday lets hope the sun shines for this one, I'm actually writing this during the snow of the Easter Bank Holiday (I'm getting ahead ready for when I will be working)

Today see's the start of a new challenge for Team B at


and this week the lovely Red is hosting her first challenge with us and she has chosen


It can be wet or dry or even both!

I went with the dry variety on a card that was commissioned.
I struggle with commissioned cards as I'm never sure they will like what I made!
Anyway here it is...

2 of the 3 papers are from our Sponsor this week

Plain & Simple and Simply Dots in a lovely soft lilac.
These really are lovely papers, they are already distressed and they sand away beautifully at the edges when you want to blend the edge of a covered card in.
I hope Joy liked her card!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge, the prize on offer and lots of gorgeous embossing from my lovely Teammies.

That's all from me, enjoy your long weekend,
if your in Sunny Hunny come and say Hello

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
