A Blog Hop and Challenge (or Two :0)!

Hi Everyone!!

Time to hop again - with scallops as the main course on the menu :0)!

It's always good to keep the chatting to a minimum on these days - so without further ado ....

A Card :0)

Embossed Scallops

When Papertrey released these lovely scallop dies, I almost didn't get this size - and now it's my FAVOURITE ever - so funny how that goes!

As you can see, I got out a few different embossing folders to dress up the scallops with a bit with texture ...

Embossed Scallops Deet

The colours on this card were inspired by the ladies at CR84FN for week 16  (beautiful!) ... and Wee Memories has a challenge this week - to use inspiration from a favourite source in your creation. I've been over at the Moxie Fab World blog prepping for this one - there is always a load of inspiration there! 

Thank you so much for stopping in and visiting - and if you're hopping, have fun on the journey ... and ENJOY :0)!
