You probably wonder where I've been for the past couple days because I haven't posted a card since Friday. Here's a picture that pretty much explains it! We had a very large old tree in our back yard that was dead and we had to take it down. Click the photo and you'll see the guy who climbed that tree with spikes and a rope and took the whole thing down by himself in less than an hour! My husband and I did the cleanup by ourselves, and can I tell you we're both too old to do that kind of work now?! LOL I'm barely moving today but it was good to get outdoors and enjoy the gorgeous weather we've been having. At least we have a good supply of firewood for the time being.
Anyway, I found my way back to my crafting table to make a couple cards this afternoon while I was listening to the race.
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge #125 which is to use your favorite technique and explain what it is. I LOVE to emboss! Dry embossing or heat embossing - I love to do both on my cards, and this one includes both. I stamped the MFP Southwest Cowboy image on white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and embossed it with clear detail ep. I fussy cut the image and popped it up on foam tape. The blue background was done with an ef from the CB Hello Friend set. The red dsp panel is from BoBunny, and the kraft panel was embossed with a SU! square lattice ef. The sentiment is from the same MFP set and was also heat embossed, and I added 3 large gold brads for the finishing touch.
That's it for me today - I think I'll be hitting the sack early tonight after all that yard work! I'd definitely not make a good lumber jack! LOL Enjoy the coming week and thanks for stopping by :)
