Paper Players Challenge #113

Finding balance is usually difficult me for ~ it means I can't ALWAYS do what I'd love to do but also what is needed. So in trying to find balance in my present world, I've had to make some very hard choices, first being my classes...I love getting together with my friends to create, but needed to cut my class time in half...and the other was the posting on my blog when I'm able to and not a daily thought and hope to get to it event! Both of these decisions effect my studio time and playing along with today I feel SO priviledged that I got to play and my card went along with the challenge that I found at PPA113 which was to Heat Emboss. I definetley agree with the DT, heat embossing just gives everything a pop! So here is a picture of my card which was heat embossed using Dazzling Diamonds...haven't played with that for such a long time and I had a blast ~ it was so nice to create...I miss doing this daily, but....well, you know...

These cuties were colored using my blender pens, I love to color, but I also love embossing, with powder as well as folders, but I also love...well...all of it ~ how about you, what is one of your favorite techniques to play with ~ it's hard to capture everything that's going on with these guys, each pompom has Dazzling Details on them and the buttons have Crystal Effects ~ looks super cute IRL ~ and a little peek of the inside which was also heat embossed using Dazzling Diamonds once again ~ I love these stamp sets...think I'll be hanging on to these for awhile!

I hope to play again this weekend ~ althought we will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Sunday, so the entire gang will be here ~ can't think of anything better than spending time with my family ~ I am blessed ~ thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day and enjoy your weekend!
