Embossing Challenge at One Stop Crafts and a WINNER

I could try and blame blogger for being a poo and not posting my OSC DT card on Saturday, but that wouldn't be right. Actually, it was completely user error. Oops! I use the scheduled post feature all the time and somehow messed it up this time. SORRY if you were here looking for my card earlier.

The first thing to share is the WINNER of my blog candy from last week's blog hop. I had so much fun reading all your comments about costumes and have a few new ideas to try out. THANKS to everyone who stopped to say hello and to my new followers. I had Random Gears choose the winner (that would be my husband - who had just as much fun reading every one's comments). He drew.......JAC.... as the winner! I've emailed her and will get the candy ready to ship over to the UK.

This week at OSC, Itzuvit is challenging us to use embossing. Dew Dropz is our sponsor and has offered a £10.00 gift voucher to spend on Dewdrop Craftz Digi Images. I used an embossing folder on the base of my card and was able to incorporate several 365 Cards challenges (I'm determined to get them all done this year). I hope you have time to play with us!

I moved my 'flower' to the other side.
