Embossed MashUp!

 I've been working on Christmas cards all week so I was thrilled this morning when I saw that this weeks' Friday MashUp! was moving away from seasonal cards.  The SUO Challenge this week was to create a card for someone you're thinking about - my aunt hasn't been feeling very well lately, so I will be sending this her way.  The mashup today is:
  1. Make a project featuring "A Girly Theme".
  2. Or Make a project using "Your Favorite Technique".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Girly project using your Favorite Technique
I love embossing - both heat and "dry".  Heat embossing is just so magical!  I used white embossing on the Melon Mambo piece and then coloured in the leaves with white gel pen.  The flower pieces were put through the Big Shot with the Finial Press embossing folder.  (I don't believe I've ever written down that folder name before! Ha ha)

I haven't shared any pages from my anniversary book for a while - so here are the next two in line.....

 My husband has come to my classroom a couple of times on Valentines day delivering a huge Hershey Kiss for me and  packages of small ones for my students.

Laughter is an important part of any relationship - good for the spirit, good for the soul, good for our health.

Hope you find something you can laugh about today - I'm off to get ready for a class tomorrow.  Have a good one!  Thanks for stopping by!

Joan, your embossing was so spot on that I thought it was designer paper! I love the inked edges of the flower too. I haven't tried that yet with such a contrasting colors; it looks gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining The Friday Mashup this week!
