Being a bit "EMBossy"

Well what's this weather all about? Me and my umbrella lost our battle today, need to buy new umbrella which I am really annoyed about as I have managed to keep this one for over a year as I usually lose them as soon as I have bought them, I also have the same problem with sunglasses but at the moment I know exactly where they are as I have had little need for them so far......
Anyway I recently made a birthday card for my dad which features Couture Creations World Map embossing folder

I have embossed the World map onto Kraftcore card and inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo
The compass has been embossed from the same folder and cut out.
The map paper is from my stash.
All papers have had the edges distressed
Hot Air balloon stamp is from indigo blu
Embellishments include creative expressions screw brads
Bakers twine
Tim Holtz spinner and cog charms
Card base is Kraft Card

I am entering this card into the following 2 challenges both who feature Embossing as their challenge.

Thanks for looking

Art Impressions "Girlfriends"

Well it has been several weeks since I have posted on my blog, and I have a feeble excuse..... Work! It is a busy time of year for me at work and that has impacted on my time spent in my craft room (why wont my lottery numbers come up?) and that time has been nil. I have had several parcels delivered which I haven't even had time to play with and are still sitting in the boxes they were delivered in.

I recently made a gift of 7 cards using the fabulous Girlfriend stamps by Art Impressions. I have since ordered the 4 new ones and they are currently probably mid Atlantic winging themselves over from the US. I have previousley posted 4 of them and these are the remaining 3.
