Confuscius says "Wishing you Every Happiness"

Come join us at Fairy Fun Fridays as we start on our new challenge, Embossing, you pick either Dry or Heat.  For this challenge I chose heat (all the gold flowers on the red paper), however the gold paper behind by Geisha Gillian from Prairie Fairy Designs is dry embossed as well.  The sketch I used is from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 70.  Other challenges I have entered with this card are:  Craft Your Days Away 3 - Girly n' Glitter; Oh Alice Chapter 29 -- Shine or Sparkle; Fab 'n' Funk Challenge 39 - What'eva; Pile It On 35 - Layers; Cowgirls Sunday Stamp'Em Challenge - Anything Goes; Bee Crafty 37 - Anything Goes; and Paper Sundaes 34 - Mixed Mediums (copics and coloring pencils blended with baby oil)

Sorry I haven't been an active blogger lately, life got in the way, I had a wonderful Labor Day weekend with a house full of guests, then school started as well as school meetings.  Still catching up on sleep from the fun of the weekend and we are already setting aside next Labor Day weekend for more fun activities.

Stamps:  Geisha Gillian - Prairie Fairy Designs, Embrace Life - SU
Ink:  Metallic Gold
Paper:  Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, metallic gold and PP
Accessories:  copics, coloring pencils, blending stump, baby oil, pop dots, Labels Five - Nestabilities, pearls, Gold EP
