Hi everyone! I hope this past week was a wonderful one for you! I had great week with the sharing of lots of happy news – my retirement has been approved, I joined the Eyelet Outlet DT and I joined the Prickley Pear Stamps DT! Woo-hoo – lots of great things happening right now! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #40 – Anything Goes + Embossing! Remember, all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer an optional technique twist each month to get your mojo going! Our twist this month is embossing (heat or dry) and the twist is not required to play!

I created a front step panel card which is one of my new favorite fun folds. I used the Darice Wire Fence embossing folder to dry emboss the green Kraft-Core cardstock used for the front panel and lightly sanded it while it was still in the embossing folder which really brought out the kraft core. I’ve also fallen in love with the Hero Arts Paper Layering Poinsettia die set and used that as the focal on this card. I die cut a Tim Holtz Holiday Celebrations Script word die for the sentiment, and added a few green flat-back pearls.

For the back panel, I stamped a sentiment from The Project Bin in green ink and affixed a leftover piece of the green Kraft-Core cardstock used on the front to tie it all together.

And one last peek… an angled shot so you can see the cool construction of this. I just love it and it folds flat for mailing! Bonus!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
