Up, Up and Away

Good Morning,

Nice and sunny here this morning, hope it's the same with you.  Almost at the end of August and I have been having a quiet time in the crafting department but I really need to get down to some card making as I have quite a few birthdays coming in September and am finding it really hard to get motivated.  Anyway we have a new challenge for you over on My Time to Craft today where for the next fortnight our theme is:

Something that Flies

Snow Friends

Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all well and having a great August, I have been having a bit of a rest from crafting while things are quiet on the blog front.  Not so quiet at home, we are looking after our eldest son's cocker spaniel while they are away and then onto rabbit duty when our daughter goes on holiday.  We were out at the Trafford Centre last Monday when our granddaughter Abbie was 15 so we took her to choose a present and out for lunch.  Monday next we are off with Lorna, Abbie and Emma for the day to Blackpool Zoo so hope the weather is good (hopefully no rain).

Well onto my card for our challenge at My Time to Craft where this Saturday our challenge is:

Embossing Wet or Dry


For my embossing I used my Die'sire Embossilicious folder "Star of Wonder" and then sprayed the embossed card with Silver spray, which doesn't show up too well on the photo, and the matting is silver mirri which looks black!!!!
