I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #140

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE which this week is set by the lovely BEATE. She has chosen a theme of:-

EMBOSSING

I chose to do dry embossing and another CAS card. I cut four 1.5" squares and rounded 2 of the corners then embossed. A great way to use scraps.

The image is a new stamp from Lili of the Valley "Maisie Two Balloons". I have had another try watercolouring with my Aquamarkers and am quite pleased with the result.

IMAGE:

TOOLS:

Swiss dots, circles & devine swirls embossing folders
