Random Amusing Challenge 81

Happy Monday all. I'm hoping you are lucky enough to have this Labour Day off of work and you've had a fabulous long weekend. Hubby and I have been busy with a home project but I did manage to get some craftiness done this weekend - including the Art of Text (which I love) and Simply Inspired.

The challenge today is to do some heat embossing on your card or project. When I started stamping, I always embossed. Then I got away from it for several years. I have started back again (just once in a while) and recently submitted this one for Paper Crafts Magazine Stamp It! submission call.... but alas, it didn't get picked. Thought I would put it to good use and use it as a challenge card. What do you think? If you play along, please leave a comment here and a link back here from your post. If you upload to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers or Paper Craft Planet, please use the keyword GRAC81. A big thank you to MommyScraps, Kerry, Sarah and Katie for playing along with the back to school challenge last week.

As a little aside, I have to thank my fabulous friend Alli Miles for encouraging me to submit cards for publication. I have not been successful... yet... but I will continue to try. Nothing to lose and everything to gain if I get picked. The competition is crazy and there are so many fabulous crafters out there. According to Paper Crafts facebook page, there were 1107 submissions for 129 spots for the last call! Just crossing my fingers for next time.

Keep checking back this week as I have a secret I been keeping which I finally get to share!

Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by. Big hugs... Glenda

  1. thanks for the challenge...here is the link to my card


  2. I'm another advocate of submitting. I've been lucky to have a couple picked up, but I've submitted more than a few that weren't. One of these times you'll have just the thing they're looking for!

  3. Fun challenge. I haven't done any heat embossing in quite a while, so it was nice to break out the tools and do it.


  4. Embossing... can I do that to my homework? LOL
    Fun card Miss Glenda. If I had a magazine I'd fill it with your work!

  5. Stunning card Glenda! Good luck and I'll sure keep my fingers crossed for you. Another wicked awesome challenge. Here is my card. Have a great weekend!
