A new week - a new challenge - embossing!

So many exciting things going on at H2H - let's get right to it!

Last week was a 4 for 40 week and YEAH - we had 40 entries!!!!  Now I know, some entered twice, and I think one may have been a duplicate, but I don't care - there's 40 entries and I'm awarding Jessica's 4 pieces of artwork to one lucky player. And that person, chosen by Random.org is ......   #5 LINDA NORMAN!  Congratulations Linda - please contact me with your address so Jessica can send out your prize! 

This week, our prize is sponsored by Carrisa Peach. Carrisa will be sending one of our lucky participants a complete KEY TO MY HEART set from CTMH. This is an older promotional item that is not available any more so it's a little rare! I will have a photo of it as soon as I can get the photo to cooperate. Thank you Carrisa for sponsoring us this week! You can visit Carrisa's blog at Just Peachy Creations and check out her adorable artwork!


This is also our last week to be highlighting our Guest DT, Lorrinda, and her artwork for this week's challenge is gorgeous! But then again, have we seen anything less from this talented lady?  Our challenge for this week is EMBOSSING - dry or heat embossing. To start off our inspiration, let's take a look at Lorrinda's card:

Lorrinda used 4 different embossing styles on this beautiful card. If you want to get all the details, head over to her blog for more information. Thank you for joining us this month Lorrinda! We loved having you as part of the team!

Here are the rest of the DT samples:








WOW! Everyone did such a great job and I hope you're inspired to give some embossing a try this week. Create your project (*and be sure to use Close To My Heart products) and then post your artwork to your blog or other public gallery. Be sure we can leave you a comment on your post in case we need to contact you. Then come back here and leave a link to your post. It's that easy! Details on our challenge "rules" can be seen in the sidebar to the right.

Have a wonderful week~
