I love that when I have to get off of my feet I can sit with my feet up, resting my back on a heating pad and still have the pleasure of occasionally being able to emboss and die cut with the Cuttlebug. How did I live all of these years without one?!! This generous set of gifts came from a lady by the name of Carol (a/k/a: "Craftin' Granny") of Craftin' Granny's Card Shack, in celebration of her "Bloggerversary." The cards she makes are unparallelled in both their array of layers and embellishments but their color combinations. Every time I look at one of her cards I know I have to go back and take another look, because I take notice of something that I did not see during a previous blog visit. It's like a "Where's Waldo?" type of scenario where you keep looking because you don't want to miss a Waldo, and you won't want to miss any facet of her lovely cards. Please be sure to visit her blog and leave a comment for her. You'll leave her blog feeling like you've visited a special place on the web. You may even want to become one of her followers, like I have done.
Now...onto the card! Tonight I used my new Cuttlebug for the first time to do all of the embossing on this card "Daisies and Dots," created two challenges this week's Paper Pal Arts Sketch Challenge #94A and then this month's Lily Pad Cards Embossing Challenge (which I found via complimenting someone else's card submission to PPA# 94A.
The components for this embossed card have been cut and prepared for making at least 10 more units for Operation Write Home, which just met its 1,000,000 card goal--YAY!
