I am so proud of my husband.  My husband has always had a dream to write a book.  He has worked very hard at the computer, typing away and putting together a wonderful story about a man and his dog.  At the end of each day, I would read through and help edit for grammar and spelling mistakes.  I think I have read some of the chapters four or five times.  It is now available for sale at Amazon.  Way to go Richie, I love you even more . . .

Thank you for visiting.

OWH - May Daily Bread Challenge

Embossing was style of the card for May Daily Bread Challenge.  I found a leaf die and realized it was perfect for the flame and then embossed them for a bit more character.  Embossing one candle also helped balance the design.  The "Happy Birthday" is an old brass stencil and I tried clear embossing paste and it had lots of texture, but being clear it did not show up very well. So, I used distress ink and blended up the card and then it just pops out!

Thank you for stopping by.
