Winter Wonderland - Embossing Dry/Heat

Good Morning Everyone,  Oh it's Friday thank goodness, I've not been around since Monday, I've been really poorly !!!  the dreaded flue type bug hit me on Monday and I've been semi-conscious since. Mind you that's not a bad thing where my dear Hubby is concerned, he's had 4 days of peace and quiet, lol!!!

I'm being naughty really, he's looked after me beautifully, hot toddies, toast, toast and more toast!!!! hehehe!
Anyway I'm feeling a lot better now, It was my turn Host the challenge over at

Where it is Marianne's Teams turn to inspire and enthuse you, which the girls have done beautifully, do pop over and take a peek at the wonderful creation made just for you by my lovely friends on the DT.

Our theme this week is EMBOSSING  Dry or/and Heat.  Your choice.  I've done both with my card, the centre section has been embossed using my CB Swiss Dots folder and my heat embossing is my sentiment and the 4 fancy corner dies from Marianne D's die cuts.  I embossed them first through my big shot then distressed them with TH Victorian Velvet, I them ran over them with my clear ink pad and added Rangers Bridal embossing powder. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.  I've even got the sewing machine out and stitched all around the card.  The full recipe for my card is below this post.

We have two wonderful Sponsors this week, which means two prizes, yes you heard me right, we will have two winners.

The first of our sponsors is the lovely Lynne from Sentiments 4 You and she is giving one lucky winner a
$10.00 gift voucher to spend in store.  Lynne has a store full of wonderful sentiments and I'm sure you will have no problem spending the voucher.

Another Fabulous Sponsor

Our Next Sponsor is the lovely Stitchy from Stitchy Bear Stamps and she is giving the other lucky winner a
$10.00 gift voucher to spend in store.  How great is that.
