A long weekend!!

Well hello there!

Do any of you have any plans for the bank holiday weekend?

I am working today (booooo!!) but am going for Crepes with friends tonight yummy!! Then one of the couples from our adoption course is having a BBQ (or buffet depending on weather lol) on Sunday then on Monday I am wedding shopping with my sister a nice busy weekend for me lol..

Well as it is Sunday that means a new challenge over at

This week we want to see embossing.
Now I have tried embossing in the past but we don't really get on lol.. so I did think about just getting some embossed papers...but I do not like to be defeated so I have done some embossing and it looks ok (I did play safe and just do some shapes though lol!!)

Now everything on this card (including the card) I got at crafty Emma's store!!
The Image is WOJ
Papers MME lime twist
Bakers twine
Candi dots
Star charm

Also Emma is having a huge sale so pop on over and take a look!!!

I am also entering this into:

Charisma - Boy oh boy

Simon says - Stars and stripes!

My time to craft - Use a die

Totally Gorjus - String

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend xx
