Make it Pretty

Hey there.
This will be my last post for a while.
I am surrounded by packing boxes and praying that the paperwork
for our rental property goes through  before the sale of our house is completed!!
It's gonna be a close thing!

Even if only for a short time, playing with these pretty stamps and inks,
held the stress at bay!


I admit, I always thought gold embossing was a little on the tacky side,
but it's popular right now, so I thought I would give it a try.
I'm a convert !
Even against the multi-coloured leaves and blooms here, I think it's pretty
and  gives the card just that little extra something.
It's taken me a while to get there, but
gold embossing is my new favourite thing :-)
