Lawnscaping Challenges Rides Again!

Finally!!!  I found some free time today and created a whirlwind of cards.  Oh, I so wish I could do that every day.  It felt GREAT!!!!

One of the cards I made is for the current Lawnscaping Challenge--Embossing!

I have had bits and pieces of this card sitting around for a while, but I finally got it all pulled together.  Do you ever start a project only to be distracted by something else?  Yeah, me too.  Too often, I am afraid!  What was I saying?  ;)

I just love the new Love You S'more sets from Lawn Fawn, and they finally helped me pull this card all together!

I made this speech bubble greeting for the card back when I first bought the dies...and then didn't get any further because of other projects...

These little marshmallows are just adorbs.  How can anyone possibly resist them!  I quickly discovered that you do NOT even need to stamp the images for these dies!  They totally work all on their own!

For the challenge, I dry embossed a piece of Sweet Leaf CS with the Close to My Heart Damask Folder.  This was also a left over from another card I made a while ago.  It was just right for my grassy knoll.  ;)

See what's missing on this card?  My trademark sparkle is not there--and there is a big reason!  I am building up my stash of cards to send away to Operation Write Home this summer.  NO glitter means NO way, so I am steering clear in an effort to send more cards.  Don't worry, I will slip some in here and there, but I have GOT to focus to be able to hold off!  ;)

Don't forget to check out the June Stamp of the Month over at my Close to My Heart's GREAT for more Operation Write Home cards!

AND, remember, JUNE is my birthday month, so YOU get presents!!!  Everyone who makes a $40 purchase this month will get a FREE gift from ME!  What will YOU get for my birthday?  :)
