Beth over at Papercraft Star has left me a couple messages now saying I should join in their fun weekly challenges. So I decided this was going to be the week. I wanted to start last week, but didn't get my card finished in time. This week's challenge was simple... make a thank you themed project using dry embossing, a Cricut cut, metal, and anything else you want.
When we got home today, our house was only 62 degrees! We've been trying to avoid turning the heat on, but after freezing last night despite the three blankets and flannel sheets on our bed, we gave in. I may have to give up scrap shopping for the winter in order to pay the gas bill, but at least my fingers will be warm enough to craft. LoL.
In an effort to hold on to the fading memories of summer, I turned to my A Day At The Beach paper pack from The Paper Studio for this week's challenge. It may be freezing outside, but this paper just called to me and I couldn't say no. If I wasn't already a self-proclaimed paper addict, I might worry that my paper talks to me, but really... I'm perfectly okay with it. :-)
Anyways, it's getting late and I'm rambling... so on with the card!
