a bit of embossing

is happening over at the latest southern girls challenge. Use some dry embossed paeper or probably cardstock and show us what you've got!

I used some white pre-embossed (is there such a word??) spotty card for my back ground card. I smudged some Tim Holtz ink around to high light the embossing. And i love the chicken wire transparency from Hambly that was in the last Cocoa Daisy Kit.

the image is Henry drinking what was a staple overseas, freshly squeezed Lemon Juice. So yummy (except the time in Vietnam, where they served the lemon juice, warm, with bits of bark and this thing that looked like a soft wrinkled stone - later discovered to be a sweetened prune, we hope...- at the murky bottom).

Oranges are obviously a luxury item as orange juice was rare and expensive (we also managed to get one place that served hot OJ - not that good...).

And there was this delightful concoction, citrus milk. I have had a very sheltered upbringing..

Anyway come and play with us at Southern Girls, some very cool prizes up for grabs and check out the other Dt's fab work, so cute!.

And don't forget to go check out the dollies latest challenge.

Off to the coast for the weekend, weather is turning cooler so not sure what we will be up to.
