Embossing at Sophisticats, meets Pink, Purple and Grey, at For Fun Challenges

Hi girls as promised my 2nd DT card for today, I am so behind with my work this week, and started off really well, but with new shelves going up and Brian taking me off for lunch and then Sunday Dinner, what is a girl to do.....we had the most Fab meal out last night with Kenneth, Jennifer and Tommy, as an early celebration of Brian's birthday tomorrow....thankfully he is going for a game of golf today, so I can get on with my other DT work....and also get a chance to catch up with my friends....you have all been so great at leaving comments on my blog, and I assure you I appreciate every single one....you Rock girls, honest you do..

Now onto the business of the day, at Sophisticats we welcome a new member to our team Tracy, who is yet another talented girl, I am sure you will agree, once you have visited her blog.....our fabulous Mandy has choosen "Embossing" as this weeks challenge, now this can be any kind of Embossing, wet, dry, machines etc, I had to resort to my trusty light box....as I had to cancel my order for my Sizzix machine, Weep, Weep, and could not get to grips with Embossing with the Slice Machine, if anyone has tips, for this I would appreciate it....they only showed the cutting on QVC.  I used yet another Cute Daisy May Image, - Sheet 171, as I have a few birthday cards to make this year for 17 year old girls...and I think this is just the business.  I followed the challenge at Helen's new Challenge Blog,  For Fun Challenges,  CH1 which asked for Pink, Purple and Grey.....I coloured the image and embossed her stockings and hair, with Silver and Clear embossing powders and embossed with a Flower Fairy stencil around the image, which I chalked lightly, I kept this simple to let the embossing show...hope you like it girls and give our newbie Tracy a Warm Welcome....love to all, have to get back to work for now....Avril xxxx
