Stamp Simply Friday Challenge...embossing


Well the Friday challenge at notimetostamp is to do some embossing. I think we all have a tendency to avoid embossing but it does make some lovely images. I used a Stampin Up flower done with gold embossing and my phrase is from Stampendous. I painted my little flowers with Pearl Ex paints to bring a bit of color, added some small stones a fushia ribbon, matted on gold and I'm done. Very easy and straight to the point.
It is dark and dreary here so it makes me feel dreary...come on let's see the sun. Happy weekend to you all. I plan to go fishing again tonight at the church's fish fry. Hope I catch something this week other then a cold or flu bug. Stay happy.

You have the corner on Elegance. Did you ever think that maybe you aren't catching any fish because you're too classy for the old clunkers?? Have fun and go outside and gulp in some spring air. It's balmy up here this morning and I love it ~ even left the long johns at home to keep the down parka company.

Hi mom! I'm a little late to the party this week. Ellie wanted to stop by Zoe's site and so we ended up here first to say hi -- She went ooOOOoo when she saw your card. It's simply elegant! Hope you had fun at the fish fry!

Hi PAt!! Such a beautiful card!!
How have you been??? We enjoyed out time in Tampa... Saw family and enjoyed a little sun.
Our snow is almost gone! And I had 10 robins on my front lawn yesterday afternoon. That MUST mean spring is around the corner..
Have a relaxing Sunday!!
