The Outlawz Crash your Stash Challenge: Embossing Folders

And as He was resurrected
On that day, so very fair,
Let our thoughts be resurrected
From wrong thinking to God's care...
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "Easter," 1940s

Good morning!

We have a new Crash your Stash Challenge starting at The Outlawz Challenges which will run through February 14th

Our sponsor this month is Morgan’s Artworld with a prize of 3 images used by the Design Team.

The challenge for this month is to use embossing folders. I love them but have so many of them of they are often neglected. It was fun to shuffle through and pull one out to use. They really do take your cards & projects up a step!

  • Image “Easter 7” printed on Hammermill Color Copy
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (base)
  • Design Paper from The Paper Studio (Water Color)
  • Embossing folder from Cuttlebug (Smitten)
  • ProMarkers
  • Punch from WRMK, Cropadile croner rounder
  • Rhinestones from my Stash
  • Sentiment from Stampin Up! (Never Ending Joy)
Now come on over to The Outlawz Challenges to play along with us or one of the other challenges that are always in process!

Mermaid Song

Are mermaids real or make believe, cos I think I saw one swimming in the sea
Her tail had silver scales and her hair was very long, and as she swam, she sang a mermaid song
Oooohh (wobble your lips as you sing!)
