CB/DT~Double Embossing~Nesties!!

Happy Mon.!

How is everyone doing on this fine Monday? I hope all is well, and you are warm and dry. We are having rain, but it is not too cold here. Good crafting weather to stay inside. I have not been doing any paper crafting for about a week now, been doing some sewing, but I couldn't miss another Cuttlebug challenge. Did you miss me last week? LOL. I sure missed all of you, and missed my paper crafting too. This week our challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot was double embossing, no not just using two folders, but leaving a blank space. We accomplished this task by using our nesties and with Nilda's great video tutorial. You can play along with us this week, as I'm sure my DT sister have created some adorable treats for your eyes. Why not give it a try, you will be surprised at yourself! My card is pretty simple, being that I couldn't find the original stamp I wanted to use and had to settle for this one. Today was not a good day for me, I needed to make 3 sympathy cards, yes it is that time again. This was going to be one of them, I figured I would kill two birds with one shot. Well, I shot myself in the foot, couldn't seem to get it together, so you will just have to bear with me for this week. I am not that pleased with this one. The Just Rite stamp was heat embossed, used my rectangle nesties, and the Birds & Swirls Cuttlebug folder. I added the MS border punch down the side along with gold foil-board and beads. It was just too plain for me. That is all for now, catcha in a few!
