Totally Papercrafts Challenge

Well hello there....

It's been a while hasn't it. Would love to say that I'm completely fighting fit but I'm not. Seems to be a long slow process but I think I'm getting there.

It's time for a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this time it's the turn of our lovely Carol to choose the theme. (but before I tell you what it is - just in case you haven't been over to Totally Papercrafts this year we've split into two teams so I'll only be posting a card once a fortnight although I will still tell you what the theme is!)

This week our theme is

Embossing of Any Kind

And I took the easy way out... ish and used an embossing folder! If I had been feeling a little more like crafting I might have broken out the heat gun and some embossing powders!

 So for the first card I have made in 2013 it's ****. You can blame Cathy for that who having made a **** card herself challenged me to to do the same!

I've used one of the new Vintage Adorables from Sugar Nellies, lovely Alicia - isn't she just gorgeous - and I've gone for quite a simple card. Break myself in gently...
