Monday Challenge # 18 - Emboss It!

Hello blogger friends. It's time for the Monday Challenge at My Craft Spot and it's all about Embossing this week, any kind of embossing such as dry, heat, faux, etc. I used my Cuttlebug folder Domino's for my embossing of choice. First let me tell you that tomorrow is going to be a very sad day for my husband and I. Our youngest son moved to Texas at the beginning of this year and now our oldest son is moving down with him. Our house will be so empty and they will be so far away from us, over 2,500 miles, UGGG. We take him to the airport in the morning, I hope I have enough tissue. I made him this cute little mouse card and then decided to enter it into the Monday Challenge.
Isn't he so cute, he is from the "Four Legged Friends" lite cartridge. He is cut at 3.50". I used some distressing ink around him and a few little white gel pen accents here and there and then popped him up with some dimensionals. I also used distressing ink on a sponge dabbed softly all over the top of the embossed domino's.

I used Tim Holtz Scallop Tag Die cut for this tag and used rub-on-letters for the "miss you". Added a little heart and some stitching around the edge. Oh ya don't forget the Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Tea Dye around the edges.
I just love his little face, he's so cute. I think by adding a little white dot in his eye really brought him to life. I hope you enjoyed him.

God Bless you all and please come by again.
