Congrats to the winner, Kathy! Wonderful embossing themed cards. I first learned to emboss the old fashion way with brass stencils, stylus & a light box. Then along came embossing folders. Have a Bee-utiful day!

Jeannie, Thanks for stopping by the other day. Yes, it was a Bugaboo image. I didn't get my post ready the night before and I got up late to go to work....therefore, my post was added with nothing but the card. :) I am doing well. It has been pretty nice up here. I understand that it has been really hot down your way. I love your new blog. Judi and Arlana mentioned to me that you had started a challenge blog. I have always loved your cards.....Anyone should love getting one of them. I hope you are doing well too. I do think about you and wonder how you are doing from time to time. Take Care!

Great card samples, especially liking card 3. I think I need to make a sample set of all my folders like Shabby Chalet did.

Jeannie... Just found your blog because Lydia from Splitcoast Stampers featured your coffee embossed card on Facebook.... which linked to the card posted in your Splitcoast gallery. And of course you had the link to your blog listed, so here I am, LOL!!

Anyway.... the card was super cute! Loved it! That's why I stopped by, to tell you that... and then I saw you were in Phx... my hubby's and our kids hometown! :) ... until we moved to TX more than 20 years ago now... OK now I'm way off track!

I'm now following you on Bloglovin' cause I think your challenge blog is a great and unique idea. I just may have to join in on a challenge sometime :)
