MERRY CHRISTMAS.....ALITTLE EARLY!'s time for another challenge over at JUST CUTE BEARS,and this week we would like to see "EMBOSSING" on your card/project,now this can be any sort of embossing and the only other rule is you must use a cute bear that's no hardship is it!......

This week due to the theme i decided to keep it pretty simple....i always think and this is just my opinion that embossing done on white card always looks classy and tends to show the embossing off perfectly.
I've used two embossing folders.....Cuttlebug "Graces Frame" and Papermania "Christmas Borders".
The image is one of the new Christmas images from Pollycraft "Kiki Gifts"....coloured with Copic's and Prisma's for alittle added shading.
The sentiment i purchased from Ebay when i first started making cards,and ribbon from stash.
I'm entering this into the following challenges :-
SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY......I have rotated to suit my needs...thanks you girls again a great sketch to work with.
TOTALLY GORJUSS......Christmas in August.
SECRET CRAFTER.....Make a start on Christmas.
BEE CRAFTY....Anything goes.
Well that's about it for today....i would like to thank all who joined us last week we had some fabby entries hope you will all join in the fun again this week...and i almost forgot to mention we have a DT call...check out Just Cute Bears for details.
Have a lovely day
Take care
