Timeless Tuesday...Emboss dry or with powder



Well today is Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes and the challenge is to emboss...with ink and powder or dry embossing with a stencil. I chose to use the coffee set and emboss with ink and powder, wish I could jazz up my old face as easily by using ink and powder but that just ain't happening anymore so.... I used gold embossing powder on this one and just did a simple card with the cups, a phrase, and a bit of ribbon and bling.Poor quality picture and I frayed my ribbon...not a good showing.
I'm frustrated with this getting old business. Have trouble getting RX's filled with my so called medical coverage and they only want $203, for some asthma meds. It's a real crapper this "golden years" time of life. I think I'll hire a hit man and just call it a day. Just kidding DD !

Like how you did the ribbon, Pat. And the slight fraying makes me think of comfortable, old friends and my Mom seems to like them best to have coffee with. I wouldn't know. Still not grown up enough to drink it, even if I am starting to notice that I am aging and it ain't pretty. Feels and smells a bit like spring up here today. Think maybe you need to walk outside and take a deep breath. Oh and let me know if DD is on a plane to come and straighten you out. I'd come down and egg her on for that!

Getting old is not for sissies, for sure! I cringe when I go to the drugstore with my mom, and the prices she pays under her "plan."

Beautifully elegant card!

Oh mother-- I might just follow Denise's advice and come up there and have some words with you! I might just go pick her up on the way! ;-)

Love your card! I just made one yesterday that has some of the same things going on -- it's really wierd how we think so alike sometimes!

Very very lovely! I think the Winter weather after a while makes us all feel older. When the sun is out I start feeling better. Hope you are too!
