Timeless Tuesday ...dots

Well over at TT we are to use dots. Dot dot dash sorta like the Morris code isn't it? But of course I digress as usual and instead I will tell you about dots.. I love the kind you get for the movie theater you know those little gummy mounds in different colors ? They are so fun to chew and try to get out of your teeth after the fact. Bet this cute "Glamour Girl" wouldn't even consider eating them just because of that but she is a doll face image and I love her sweet look. Just stamped, colored with the good old pencils, used some dotted bg paper, added a bit of ribbon and a stick it to em little posy and I'm done. This will have a sentiment added to the inside and it will be sent to the hospital for a teen birthday or whatever. Easy card using the set from Flourishes called Glamour Girls. Cute set with lots of fun phrases.
Rainy and cold here today, only in the high 40's and to the west of the state it's supposed to snow. Yikes! Guess that means summer is over and it's time for the long johns. Have a great week and see you soon.

Timeless Tuesday...dry embossing

Well today's challenge at TT for Flourishes is to dry emboss. I don't know about you but my skin is dry embossed from the sun tanning I did at the pool. Dry and certainly has valleys of wrinkles. BUT was it worth it?? Yes it was as it provided some coolness with all the horrible heat we had. Miss that pool and all the fun I had with my sweet GD Ellie. So anyway back to the dry embossing card. I used a fall set that's called...hmmm I don't know but it's a beauty with the fall elements of Indian corn, dry gourds, etc. Just stamped and colored with my faithful water colored pencils and used one of those embossing folders that is two sided ( neat little buggers) . Chose some design paper that would go with the rust ribbon  because I think fall says..rust. So there you have it. Easy Peasy and hopefully pleasing. 
Hope you are all enjoying some nice weather and some last minute barbecues before the weather gets cold and the white stuff flies. Take care and see you next time. 
If any of you are interested in doing some Cards 4 Kids I will love you for life. If I could get some takers I can run a bit of a contest and give out a prize. So are you in ???
