Yumi & Fumi Challenge--EMBOSSING (wet or dry)!

Happy Sunday everyone! It rained cats and dogs here all day yesterday!! I haven't seen that much rain in a long time. Every time I thought it would lighten up, it just got heavier. It wouldn't have been so bad if we got to just chill at home and eat soup and drink hot cocoa, snuggled up on the couch watching movies. But we had lots of errands to run including buying a long board at Home Depot for my son's bed. Talk about getting soaked trying to get that bugger into the SUV!! Then we had a bday party to go to in the evening so we got to be out on the slippery, wet roads with all the crazies, haha!

To say the least we haven't done much today, but sit around and relax. Well, actually I was scrambling to get this card done.....while the hubby got in a 2 hour nap!!

It's been busy at Yumi and Fumi Handmade and I hope you've been enjoying the new releases as much as us ladies on the DT. Did you see the cutie patootie Kigurumi Release?? I think they are adorable and so perfect for those sweet Halloween pages coming up! For me though, they are perfect any time of year because my little one and his cousins play dress-up whenever they want to! If you missed the Kigurumi Kids, then check out our post HERE. :)

Today we have a new challenge to announce!

Our challenge for the next two weeks is:

EMBOSSING (wet or dry)!

You MUST use a Yumi & Fumi Handmade, Sister Stamps, La-La Land Crafts or The Greeting Farm image to participate in our challenges. Any project not using these images will be deleted.

Please take the time to review all of the Challenge Rules HERE to make sure you qualify (the rules are under "Challenge Info" at the top tab). You have until Saturday, October 13th, 11am PST to link up your new project on the Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts Blog (one entry per blog please).

For my card today I used an image from the Back to School Release called Yumi with Book. I'm still caught up with the school spirit and wanted to create something I could give to one of Isaiah's "girl" friends sometime soon.

Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11/Chalk

I found a really cute 8x8 DCWV paper pad called "The Edumacation Stack"....yes, people it's really spelled that way, haha! It full of cute school dps and several have embossed designs on them. The background dps are all embossed and shiny/glossy....LOVE it! Even the designs on the banner and the sentiment are embossed. I used my Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folders on the yellow dp. 
 The ABC border on the white cardstock was made with a Martha Stewart Border Punch....cute for school, huh?!?! The "I (heart) School" ribbon is from the Paper Studio.

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension. The flowers are from Recollections and the Paper Studio.

this is beautiful! yeah, i'm not a fan of rainy days either especially when we're in the rain and not all snuggly warm sleeping in bed.

Ok, I was SURE I commented on this card. But obviously I was wrong - why am I not surprised?!
What I like about this card is that it has lots of things on it, but it still doesn't look cluttered. Everything fits together beautifully.
Hugs! xx
