Good morning blogland

Going to short change you with the waffle again this week - we have another half-term holiday and I'm looking at a very busy week outside of blogworld.

So onto business - it's Monday and a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies which this fortnight is Emboss it! Which would be, along with your cutest image, either dry or wet embossing.

 Our challenge is sponsored by the wonderful

 who are sponsoring us for the very first time, and we are delighted to be working with them! Crafty Sentiments are offering a wonderful prize of three digi stamps of the winners thank you to them!

I did try heat embossing, but the stamp and powders weren't playing ball - so I got my trusty Cuttlebug out and used a favourite embossing folder.  Our sponsors this time very kindly allowed us to pick digi stamps and this is what I made with mine:

I used:

Digi stamp:
Crafty Sentiments - Henry - why not?
coloured with my Copics
Background stamp - Woodware

Basic Grey - archaic

Go-kreate - tag
Die-namics - stacking stars

Anything else?
Cuttlebug embossing folder

Am having to run now - there's an argument erupting in the kitchen and I also want to get to my exercise class (fading hope there!).
