CAS-ual Friday!


Well, well, well. Can you believe it's Friday already? 
This week flew by for me and I feel like I've missed a few days somewhere. 
Does that ever happen to you?

On with the show anyway!

This week's challenge at the CAS-ual Fridays blog is all about embossing. Heat embossing or dry embossing, you decide.


I went with heat embossing by using white e.p. on cream CS with a stamp set by The Stamps Of Life, Friends4Ever. I love those large viney leaves. And the tiny spray of flowers started out cream but I doused them with Glimmer Mist for color!



The Stamps of Life also happen to be our sponsor this week, so be sure to check out the site...lots of unique clear stamp sets!

Play along with us this week and link your project using some form of embossing to the blog for a chance to win!

SO glad you stopped by today, have a great weekend,
*mwah*

I adore the wee sprig of flowers and the color really pops off the card against the neutrals ....... you always know just what to do!!! Yes I often lose days .... we are at the beach 2 more days and then back to NC.... sleeping in my own bed will be nice after a couple of weeks that is for sure!!!
