Special Announcement! (:


Happy Sunday, my lovely readers!!!

I am super excited about today's post!!!  As you've already figured out from the title, I have a little special announcement to make... (;

My super sweet and talented friend, Lenny (from Get Inspired and Be Creative) and I will return this Wednesday, February 13th at 10 AM (EST), 4 PM (CET) to reveal our projects for a fun mini challenge we've both been engineering for some weeks... :D

Approximately two months ago, I fell in love with the honeycomb embossed background that I saw Lenny use in one of her cards.  I had also already been planning on getting the woodgrain embossing folder for some time, too.  One day, as I was shopping at my local JoAnn, I stumbled upon an awesome sale for Tim Holtz embossing folders... There were two sets of them that called my attention *thump, thump*, and among those sets, guess which embossing folders were also included?!!  Correct--the ones and only ⟶ honeycomb and woodgrain! (;  Then, later I saw Lenny use the woodgrain embossing folder in one of her projects and it occurred to me... How fun would it be if Lenny and I would challenge each other to create projects using these two embossing folders?!!  Oh, right again--real F-U-N actually, because I think I saw her leap for joy when in her response to my message she was extending the challenge with much excitement!!!  hehe (:  So, she had another awesome idea (the lil genius she is!) hahah!  She suggested we choose a card that the other had created and CASE it (without the other knowing which one was the card/project chosen).  Hence, our challenge consists of creating a project(s) with the following criteria:


  • The use of the honeycomb embossing folder.
  • The use of the woodgrain embossing folder.
  • Discreetly choosing a card to CASE that was created by the fellow crafty friend participating in this challenge!


I seriously cannot contain my excitement and I am SOOO looking forward to seeing the projects that Lenny and I have been keeping a secret for all these weeks... *grin*  I especially can't wait to see which of my cards she has CASE'd!!! hehe! (:

However, you know us... (;  We certainly couldn't do a challenge without throwing in an interesting twist!!!  First, we cordially invite you, our crafty readers to join us this Wednesday and show us your support with your lovely comments, and perhaps--just maybe--getting a chance at being one of two lucky winners to receive a wicked FUN prize!!!!  (;  (More prize details on Wednesday!)  I hope you'll accept this invite and honor us with your presence on Reveal Day Wednesday!!! :D

I want to also thank you all SO very much for stopping by today and visiting my blog!!!  I look forward to "seeing" you again on Wednesday!!!  GOD richly bless this day and always!!  XOXO

Love,

Grisel

Thanks for stopping by my blog, too!
I'm doing great...just found out recently I'm going to be a 3rd time grandmother. I don't know how that has happened since I'm way too young and hip to be a grandmother! :) But I am certainly excited!
