Embossed Dandelion card for Challenges

Hi all, hope you have been well.  As some of you are aware I had a bit of a health scare and I stepped down from pretty much everything last year, and just as well I did. I really needed time out. The cancer tumors are slowly but surely shrinking and the medication I am on is working well without many side effects. This is my second fight with cancer, and IT will not win....Amen.

So in the mean time I have cleaned up my card stashes, and multiple other stashes that I didn't even know I had (cough) found long lost treasures and gave a lot away,and re shushed my work area...So here I am ready to go again....

It feels good.

So I am gingerly poking my toe back in the water, lol...
Haven't done this for a while so be gentle...he, he....oh how I missed this..

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Creative Inspiration # 313 : Shabby Chic
The Crafters Cafe # 116: Feminine
Little Red Wagon # 289 : Make an impression
Jo's Scrap Shack #87: Anything goes
613 Avenue # 123: Anything goes
Glitter n Sparkle # 136: Embossing
Scribble and Scrap # 44: Anything goes
Creative Card Crew #87: Embossing
City Crafters # 261: Flowers

Recipe: Mostly from my stash, the butterfly on the top right is MS punch, the bottom left one is a SU punch., The background is an embossing folder with two Dandelions ( which I got from a bargain shop- has no brand name on it), which I liberally covered with glitter, not sure that  you can see it.

Hope you like it,
Blessings Hilde


  1. I just love your dandelion embossed background. The touch of sparkle is a great addition. Thanks for playing along with us at Little Red Wagon.

  2. If you feel like crafting again then it's good news - the horrible cancer is not so consuming giving you the chance to heal in other ways - good to know you feel so much better.
