Time Out Reminder: Bright & Merry Christmas


Good morning, Happy, happy Thanksgiving to all of my American blogging friends. We're getting ready to have 35 people at our house today to celebrate Thanksgiving so we've been busy getting ready for our family to arrive.

I'm popping in with a reminder for the current Time Out challenge.  Our challenge this time is: Embossing with optional twist:  sparkle.  Last week, I went with embossing paste, and this week I'm going with traditional heat embossing.  Love the look of distress inks.  I made this on my weekend away crafting in September and have been giving my distress inks a lot more love since then!

I am also pleased that the amazing Lesley (Always Playing with Paper) is our fabulous guest designer for this challenge. Be sure to pop on over to her blog and check out her gorgeous card.


We also have a great sponsor for this challenge:  Avocado Arts.  Be sure to pop on over to their blog as well!


We love seeing how you are inspired by the challenge at Time Out.  Be sure to pop on over and check out the design team's creations and play along with us.  You will not be disappointed!

This is one stamp that I always wished I had for my Xmas collection. Just love how you've embossed it and the colours for the background are divine. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and still aren't eating turkey sandwiches!!
