Just INKlined Monthly DT Blog Hop



Well here we are again at the start of another month - I swear yesterday we were just celebrating the start of 2011 and now it's already March! But the good thing about the first Monday of the month is the fun I get to have hopping with my Just INKlined team-mates. This month's theme is Embossing - anywhere, anyhow on your project - and our gorgeous host is the lovely Joyce who starts off the hop - so head back there to begin at the very beginning (a very good place to start...) - OH dear - I'm humming that song now - LOL.

If you ARE already on the hop you should have landed here from the fabulous Meesh's blog.

For my card I used one of my favourite images - Scamp, Special Delivery - and you can find him HERE. I created a double embossed frame using my nesties to sit him in (tutorial HERE) and also added an embossed background. And now here's little confession - in a last minute decision I decided to add a sentiment to Scamp's envelope - and I smudged it - grrrrr - and then had to add a new one over the top, you should have heard me - NOT HAPPY!!! Never mind - there are no mistakes in crafting just "opportunities" they tell me - and hence the touch of stickles around the "patch" to make it a feature and more along the embossed edges to co-ordinate - LOL.

Now time to head off and see what gorgeous creation our lovely Jak has for you.

And if you get lost along the way here's the hop order - you'll find all the blog links on my left sidebar under the Just INKlined logo.

Joyce, Toni, Karen, Jeni, Lydia, Meesh, Debbie (ME), Jak, Cathy
