Just Wanted To Say Hello

Good Morning! Yesterday, we had a good dose of rain which should green things up nicely and hopefully get rid of a bunch of snow mold. After having some warm temperatures on the weekend, the house feels a little chilly today.

I am excited to show you my latest DT creation for 4 Crafty Chicks. Our hostess this week is our one and only very talented Lori!! We are on Challenge #191 and she would like us to EMBOSS.

My card below used a technique called DEBOSS Using Dies.  I learned how to do this from a fantastic tutorial by Joy Taylor at La-La Land Crafts Inspiration and Tutorial Blog.  I used the Gilded Gates 2 and fussy cut my Milk Coffee image out to make it look like she is walking in front of the gates.  I need a little bit more practice at this new technique but I love the new way to use my dies.  My photo doesn't do this card justice but I can say I am very proud of it.

Stamp: Milk Coffee Digi, Kraftin Kimmies Stamps - Everyday Sentiments
Paper: Fresh Prints, Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana, Soft Suede, Whisper White
