for my card, I used Sea Life. I embossed it onto water color paper and then I sprayed it with water.

This weeks Challenge over at the Woodware USA blog is EMBOSSING! You can choose Wet (with the powder and the heat gun) or dry (with texture folders or stencils...).
Here is the card that I made for the challenge and I used WW set Floral Frames.
I DRY embossed the butterflies, then punched them out and added them to my card. What do you think? I think it adds just the right amount of texture and dimension!

1. A new creation uploaded to your blog or online gallery (keyword WWUSAC14).
2. A direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool.

Here I Am!

Whew... was i sick! I had such bad strep throat that all I could do was lay in bed and complain! I know I could you tell I was sick? Well... I was asking for ice chips and complaining in a whisper!!!Anyway... I thought that I would show ya some fun and fave cards and projects today! Here is one of the first Sweet Pea cards that I ever made. The stamp is called Shining Through and the money went to help the Haiti Earthquake victims...what a wonderful cause..

This little charm bracelet that my darling daughter and I made was for my color challenge over at Bombshell stamps! I am Miss February and the color challenge was Red, Turquoise and Kraft. I thought that those colors were perfect for this lovely little Retro Cowgirl stamp set. My 6 year old Bombshell In Training LOVED making a craft that would be featured on Mommy's blog... she is such a love... and a creative one at that!

This next card is totally out of the box for me! The Silver Swans are from Prickley Pear's retro red rubber Valentine's release. I embossed them and then I added a silver metal wing to one of them and  added a whole bunch of other elements and here is my card! They have some FABBY stamps in Red Rubber AND clear available... so be sure to check them out! Thank you for stopping in today... and check back for the Woodware USA challenge on Monday and the Art Impressions Challenge on Thursday!
