Design Team Thursday at Impression Obsession!

My time for card making these days is just a tad restricted, as I live in chaos, getting renovations done to my home in preparation for selling this summer...I hope! (lol) Even FINDING my card supplies is a challenge! So I sure DO appreciate it when you come to visit, in spite of my infrequent posts these days.

This too shall pass, so I am told.

This birthday card uses the Impression Obsession Celebration Word Candles stamp right here, which was stamped with Top Boss Tinted Embossing Ink and thermal embossed with Top Boss Gold Embossing Powder. I added soem crystal stickles to the flames, hand stitched the outer circle, and embellished that with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. LOVE how the Viva Pens make these perfectly dimensional precious little pearls every time!

I'm linking to these card parties! City Crafter...Happy Birthday; Creative Card Crew...spring, using vibrant, fresh colours; Papertake Weekly...truly dimensional; Fab 'n' Funky...spotty and dotty; Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger...this pic!

Thanks again for visiting today...I sure do appreciate it. I wish you a day filled with whatever makes your heart happy!

This is Lynell writing from Pam's computer at the NAMTA show. We are thinking of you and glad you are living life to the fullest...just enjoy your projects. When life slows down you'll find your materials I am sure. (These stitching cards are just fabulous.)
