Rockin Around

Check out my Christmas Blog Candy here!

Hi everyone!! Hope the weekend has been treating you all warm and safe. Our weekend here was pretty good, but always much too short.

Tonight's challenge: Unscripted Sketches has a new sketch challenge this week. I love participating in US - I am always inspired by the sketches every week.


And my version:



I am trying to learn how to heat emboss - this was my test today, and I think it came out pretty good!



My infamous button-bow-twine:


Card Ingredients: American Crafts Jolly paper; Recollections cardstock; Winter Woodlands cartridge (for snowflake); Stampendous Sterling Silver emboss powder; Martha Stewart embossing ink; random bow, button, and twine.

Happy Sunday my friends! Thanks for everything!! See you all tomorrow.

This is great Deanne, fab colours and I love that embossed snowflake. I find embossing with metallic powder quite hard as there is a very fine line between melting and burning it. where do you get yout twine from? I can't find any that fine! Jo x
