Who's ready for a challenge?

Today marks the beginning of weekly challenges for the 3 Little DReaMs Yahoo Group! Not a member of the group? You can be! There's a link over there------------>
Join us, it's going to be fun! A new challenge will be posted each Friday.

The Design Team Members will each have a month of challenges for you. August just happens to be my month. So today I present the first 3 Little DReaMs Challenge- Embossing! Heat embossing or dry embossing, whatever you would like. Here is my example:



All supplies are from the July kit. I stamped the dragonflies in VersaMark and embossed them with clear embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark, also, and embossed with white embossing powder. The pink paper on the bottom I ran through my CuttleBug with the Swiss Dots folder. Just a hint, textured cardstock is a bit trickier to emboss on, so take your time and don't rush the stamping. Make sure you get a good clean image before you put on the powder.

You don't have to use a 3 Little DReaMs kit to participate in the challenges, but if you have one might as well use it! Don't have a kit? Well, that's alright(I guess. ;) Only kidding) but go check out the kits and you will be impressed. There is an incredible amount of goodies in each kit! And today is the first day to order September kits! Hurry go get yours!

We would love to see what wonderful embossing creations you create! So please post it on the Yahoo group(we have a folder just for August challenges) or if you choose to post it on SplitCoast, please use keyword "3LDAUG" so we can find it and give you some love. Everyone who participates in the challenges will have a chance to win a prize! Yep, Katie has so generously agreed to offer a prize(of her choosing) to a winner each month! Yay!

Now break out that heat gun! Or CuttleBug! Or brass stencils! Or whatever you want to emboss with! Then let us see your awesome creations so we can OOOoooo! and Aaahhhh! over them!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Sorry for the excessive use of exclamation points!

Ready, Set, Emboss!

Is there a deadline for the contest?! Just wondering!! [and just kidding of course ;o)] I tend to add a lot of exclamation points too. There was someone at work that used TO TYPE IN UPPER CASE ALL OF THE TIME, SO I THOUGHT SHE WAS YELLING AT ME. lol She was told to stop it. :o)
