4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #3 Embossing

Good Good Morning, today is another crazy blah morning filled with rain in small town Alberta. The news has even forcasted some S***, yep that is right some snow, isn't that a swear word this early....LOL. To make it all better this morning, I made the kids and Rob homemade blueberry muffins with a bisquick. Sure hope they taste good.

Wow can you believe we are on week 3 of our challenges over at 4 Crafty Chicks. I am the hostess-with-the-mostess this week and soooooo excited to bring the challenge to you! We want you to use EMBOSSING on your cards this week. Heat or dry it will all work or both. Can you say looking forward to seeing what you all do, well that is me! Week 2 was awesome and I had so much fun looking at everyones blogs. Thanks for playing.

The weather has been very bleak and blah, so my brain wasn't working on putting colors together, so while talking to my good friend Lori, she told me I should stop on over to Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge it just might help. Thanks Stacey and Lori
the colors were perfect for a sympathy card. This card will be given to my step uncle his wife passed away on Saturday. A few more have to be made before this Saturday.

I just love, love embossing!!!! I colored inside the Leafy Branch Cuttlebug folder to get the effect on my card. Also tearing my top layer shows the Swiss Dots embossing very well. The markers used are Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, and Crumb Cake.

Be sure to stop bye the other Crafty Chicks and share some love....we like it too!
