CES Challenge 38...Embossing

I really don't know what's happened to the weather this's quite dull and rainy...not good considering we are almost in June!

I showed you my birthday card to hubby earlier this week and today I'm sharing his card from James & Sophie...not only does he love MG's but he also loves Astronomy and all things relating to 'Space Travel'. When I saw this image I knew it would be perfect for him and the only thing I had to do was add the text 'Moonman Mike' to the flag. Needless to say Hubby was 'over the moon' (haha) with this card and he was chuffed to bits that we had included his nickname on there.

It's new challenge day over at CES Challenges and my gorgeous teamie Jane has chosen such a brilliant theme...she wants us to use EMBOSSING on our projects and I've gone for dry embossing with Cuttlebug Embossing Folders as they were perfick for my moon theme! The DT have had a lot of fun playing with this challenge and we hope that you do too...if you need any inspiration you can pop over to CES Challenges and have a lil look at the inspiration provided by the DT!

This weeks prize is a cool £10 gift certificate for the winner to spend in Emma's on-line store and for those of you who like to bag a crafty bargain Emma currently has a massive clearance sale running...she has reduced over 240 items including paper packs and rubber stamps!

Hi Donna, I know I often say it but you really do make FAB male cards! Brilliant layout and a great image.

It's dull and wet here today :-( Oh well I suppose we have had it good the last few weeks.
