Warning - Long Post!!!

Hi everyone hope you are all well :O), lots to do this week eeek, not sure if I will find the time apologies for the Long Post!!!
Its Tuesday so that means it is time for another Creative Card Crew Challenge this week the theme is Everyone Emboss, I had fun with my card, its a little diff to I am used to doing, and reminded me so much of when I was making atcs with the diff techniques, Check out the awesome cards from by the other dt ladies :O)
I won this stamp from the Magnolia meets Stampavie challenge and thought she was long overdue an inking, I embossed her with gold powder, and use gold rub on over the top very messy. The lettering at the bottom I used a Stampin Up block text stamp and just cut it down, I embossed the letters with clear powder and cover the backing with alcohol inks, again rubbed over with gold rub on, I gave the flowers the gold rub on treatment too I love how they look, I also used the swiss dots embossing folder and some swirls.

Remember that Tasha's gorgeous candy is linked to the challenge so hop over there to find out the details :O)

Thanks for Looking, I hope you find time to join us this

Tasha had also set the dt a challenge which was to make a card for a little girl who's 3 so here was my make, girly and frilly, gorgeous princess Anya coloured with pm and cc awww why did I not think of that abbreviation before haha

Arrr, thanks for my fix of those little kitties, what ever are we going to do when the find new homes? You will have to get some more!(Playing Devil's advocate there, Tee Hee).

Thanks for the reminder of Tasha's blog I started it and forgot to go back, why do I always do that? I thought the secret word was JOEY as I found the "o" and the "e" and made the rest up. Tash said I was wrong, so I have to find out the what the mystery was. I just HAVE to.

Thanks for the comments on my blog and the award, I don't have that one so I will grab it from ya. Ta muchly.
